So... had a bit of a scary thing happen today that I was not expecting.
So I was getting cards for family members. Whilst I was looking at ones to get my mum, I couldn't bring myself to get any card that had "for a loving/wonderful mother/mum" on it.
I had this feeling of dread that if I got my mum one of those cards she'd think that I was okay with her continuing her half-assed attempts to use MY name...
And that scared me :s
