Not even to return my polite greetings in the afternoon, through the small opening of her ever-closed bedroom door.
I Was Shut Out By My Mother For Being Depressed At Age 14
Shanice J. Douglas

Sounds like she was struggling with some demons of her own. That is no justification for her behaviour though.

I am a mother with mental illness and I hope I never treat my daughter with such…unexplainable heartless behaviour.

You’re an inspiration, you’ve dealt with this quickly, I am sure there will be days it does get to you greatly, I hope these days are few and far between.

Thanks for posting. Hope it gave some insight writing it all down. Hope your mother one day gives you an explanation.
