I miss you, mom.

These aremy feelings about my mother.
15 years ago this past Tuesday, my mother passed away of lung cancer. On her death bed she had the nerve to tell me that I messed up. But how does a 12 year old mess up? She is the one who messed up. She sent me to a state residential treatment center, and two months after I was there, she signed away her parental rights over me. When this institution couldn't stop me from being this girl I am deep inside, they sent me to the Winnebago State Hospital (Winnebago Mental Health Institute, now). It was there that I met a man that would be my knight in shining armor. A man who would allow me to be me.

Even though I was in these institutions, I was allowed to come home on visits. But no matter what she has done to me, I still love her and I wish that she was still here. There was so much left unsaid, left undone. I wish that we had had more time. RIP mom ... June 3, 1928 to February 2, 1997. She was 68 years old.
