Rhonda, I'm really sorry that you're mother disregards your feelings like that! I don't even know what to say, except that you should sit down and talk to her about it. I see from your most recent post that she does think about Abby; but still, there are some things that shouldn't be said, EVER. "Get over it" is one of them, in these circumstances. Yes, time will help the wound heal, but it will never go away; and as you said, Abby will always be the first. In your heart that needs to be acknowledged, and I think the problem is that some people just don't fully understand the pain and emotions surrounding that kind of loss to be able to fully commisserate and know what to say or how to deal with conversations like that. Does that make sense?

Good luck talking to your mom, hun! I hope it goes well, and she's able to understand where you are coming from!
