So... my birth mother lied to me again. Is it any wonder I have trust issues? They go way way way back.
She called me up saying she is part of some 'Cancer genealogy study' and had sent me a big old long email and wanted to know if I got it. No. I changed my email. So I sent her my new email address so she could send me the long explanation. Did she send it? No. Result? She weaseled my new email address out of me.
(All part of the process of my divorce - new home, new address, new name, new email, new job, new life)
So, instead, she proceeded to ask me the details about my surgery. Trying to make the connection between me and her and the supposed genealogy issues. Fishing. For what happened to me. And this is how she operates. Big ol' fake story to try and get you to divulge information. Which I did. On a certain level. That all the tests came back negative. Whatever.
She creeps me out.
Then she started in with the 'where are you working' questions. I managed to steer clear of the actual names and places. Why? Because she will stalk me! And call me at my work! Which is work!
This is the mother that called one of my employers to tell them how much I deserved a raise. When I was in my early 20's. Without my knowing. My boss/coworker/friend told me.
The therapy I should be paying for right now. But instead I purchase scrapbook supplies.
And adult beverages.
