Today is my Mom's birthday. As many of you know, she and I have not spoken in over 2.5 months. Not a peep via text, email, phone, etc. Nothing. She is super dramatic and obnoxious and basically cannot tolerate anyone having any kind of boundaries with her. I'm pretty much done with the relationship. She has done so many shitty things over the years (like screw DH and I out of tens of thousands of dollars before our wedding!), and I think I've just hit my lifelong bullshit limit from her.
She knows I've had a lot go on recently. She knows about my estrangement from my brother, and hasn't reached out to see if I'm ok. She knows I've been really sick for several months. She hasn't reached out to see if I'm ok. She knows my company launched a new website. She hasn't reached out to say good job or anything.
So now it's her Birthday, and I'm debating whether I should reach out at all, and if so, in what capacity. I did not send a card or gift, and I'm debating whether I should call. I feel like it'd be enormously shitty to not even acknowledge her birthday, but she hasn't acknowledged anything for me in months.
Should I just call and say "Happy Bday...kthxbai"? Should I text? Email?
