(Not a suggestion) My mom ignores events that happened a few years back and says they don't matter, she's talking about NOW. That she's 'sorry' and that there's no reason in bringing them up. Like for example when I was 8 she was 'drugged up' and in a hotel room slapped me in the face for no reason. I still think about it, I repressed it and recently I remembered. And she says it doesn't count because she was drugged. Doesn't everything that's happened count? For example emotional and physical?
