Left a shitty VM telling me and sibling we should consider ourselves orphans. That is weird, right?

Really weird. Any backstory at all? Are they the types where if you're not exactly like them then you're the devil?

That is weird, especially if it's out of the blue with no context.

Anything going on with them right now, like health concerns or an estrangement?

How old are they? Any chance someone is preying on them?

Very weird.

That's all the message said?

Where did this come from? Has your relationship with them been strained?

How old are they? Are they on any medications? Some medications react very differently in older people. If it is from them both though, I would wonder if someone has not developed an unhealthy influence over them.
I have seen it happen.

My parents are relatively young; 62 & 65.

We've gone from August until New Year's Eve without speaking.

*I* sent an email saying this is ridic and let's reconnect; life is too short. My mom (the problem) said SURE!! Then didn't pick up my call this weekend or return my VM.

Sometimes it's really ok to let people out of your life. People you didn't miss anyway.

I'm so sorry.

Thanks Jo. I think it just really reconfirmed what I knew all along.

Honestly, it's their loss. I'm a great person and I know that. My kids are great too, once again, their loss for not wanting to know us. We have plenty of other love to go 'round.
