NOT about anything financial

April 12th, 2008 at 07:44 am

I haven't really slept well. She e-mailed pictures yesterday and it is eerie--we are carbon copies of eachother. I'm going to see her today. This whole thing is just mind-boggling, phenomenal. I can't think about anything else and I surely can't focus. I can't think about the budget or paying bills. I can't get up the energy to clean the house. I feel like I'm going crazy. I can't tell my "adoptive" mother about this; it would kill her. I spoke to my sister this morning and I was so detached. It was totally weird. It was like I was faking the conversation. How do I live in two different worlds like this right now? DH is so supportive. I am really blessed. I need to breath. It turns out that she (birth mom) has a very rare, extremely hereditary disease that is passed down through female generations. Shock after shock after shock after shock....

    Take one day at a time. You sound like you have this situation in the right perspective. You are blessed!

    Good luck on your meeting. I'd suggest that you don't make promises right now. You are meeting somewhat quickly after she has resurfaced. You could need A LOT more time to process the whole event I would think. If she asks for another time to get together, you could set it out a month or so just to give you time to assimilate all the new info you are getting.

    Has your adoptive mother ever spoken to you of how she would feel if you were in contact w/your birth mother?

    I agree with Lux completely. And I wonder the same thing, why do you think it would kill your mother for you to be in contact with your birth mother.

    I am sure you will be experiencing a mix of emotions for quite a while...you are about to learn the answers to the biggest unknown of your life. Allow yourself plenty of time to work through everything.

    Wow. Um, not sure what I can say other than to take care and good luck.

    Take a deep breath. This is a biggie.
