Dear Amy: I grew up with a mom who I could never trust to reliably “show up.”
She was an alcoholic until I was 7, and I was sent back and forth between my father and her while she went through relationships with several men.
She had a sober period from when I was 7 until I was 13, and then she remarried and had two more children.
Once I went to college, I was no longer invited home, and this continued even after I was married.
She rarely called and was very busy with my half-siblings. There was always an excuse as to why she couldn’t see me.
She would cancel at the last minute to see a friend or make it very difficult to set solid plans. If I didn’t initiate getting together, I would never see her.
Now my kids are teens, and they don’t know her at all.
