Over the weekend I had an "aha" moment when I realized that one of the reasons I'm so angry at my mother and why I overeat after I talk to her is that she never stuck up for me. I confronted her about it yesterday over the phone and told her the memory I had about being in the hospital when I was five for ear surgery and fighting with the nurses about panties. She sided with them and I think that's when I first realized that she would never be on my side. She apologized for it yesterday and said that she was sorry that she didn't stick up for me like she should have. It really helped and I've been finally able to let go of what I've been feeling for all those years.
