My anti-vax mom disowned me and then asked if I was going to keep ignoring her

2022.01.26 12:20 cake_house My anti-vax mom disowned me and then asked if I was going to keep ignoring her

Over the past 4 years I've watched my mother descend from largely apolitical to full-on conspiracy loony. She's completely socially isolated; she and her 4 siblings all live within 2 blocks of each other in rural Florida and function as an echo chamber of crazy. A few years ago my mom decided to trim her budget by cancelling her cable and all streaming services and discovered YouTube, and that's when things really took a turn....
After years of being verbally assaulted by her every time we spoke on the phone (I do NOT live in Florida) about my dangerous and incorrect liberal beliefs, I finally told her that if we were going to continue to have a relationship we couldn't talk about politics or social issues anymore. And y'all, she tried.....but the urge to own the libs is strong, and I'm the only lib she knows. So I put my foot down again, and it did get better.
Then last August, this conversation happened:
Mom: "Can I come visit you next month?"
Me: (heaving HUGE internal sigh) "I'm sorry Mom, I'm not comfortable with you staying with us since you're not vaccinated."
Mom: "Well, what if I had Covid and have natural immunity?"
Me: "Did you have Covid?"
Mom: "Well, they're saying that most people have had it by now, even if they didn't know it."
Me: "........But....Did you have Covid?"
Mom: "Well, it's likely that I did."
Me: "..............."
The conversation ended, she didn't come visit, no word for a month.
[Note: I am immune-compromised. But according to my mom, I'm fine because I eat well and exercise.]
Then an email saying that she DID have Covid, she caught it from a vaccinated person because they're the ones spreading the virus, it was "nothing, just like a cold", I was brainwashed, and I was using Covid as an excuse to not see her. I answered that I was glad her case was mild, and that I wasn't using Covid as an excuse to not see her, I was making what I thought were the best decisions for the health of myself and my family.
She replied that she was never getting vaccinated for this "nonsense", that Covid was "a ploy for the great reset", that I was ignorant, and that I must be happy that we'll never see each other again. I replied that it did not make me happy, but that it also didn't make me happy to have my boundaries ignored, or my intentions maligned, or to be told that I’m ignorant and brainwashed, so I was taking a step back from our relationship for a little while. I told her I loved her and that I hoped she would be well.
A month later, her reply: "I have removed you as beneficiary from all my accounts and properties. You are a disgrace." (Also the election was stolen, and global socialists are brainwashing the world's population.)
So I thought that was that. It was heavy, but it also felt like the inevitable endpoint of the journey we'd been on for the past few years.
Then, yesterday, I got a new email: "You can keep ignoring me if you want, which you probably will. Are we to be estranged forever?"
I....what?? YOU disowned ME.....
So my question is: How do you explain to someone who does not seem to understand that when you tell someone you've disowned them, and call them a brainwashed ignorant fool of a disgrace, they're going to take you at your word and not contact you anymore? Or is the answer that there's no way to make them understand?
I'm fucking tired.

2022.01.26 12:20 katheez 15 days and counting!

Hey all, I'm just checking in to tell you all how I've been feeling. I smoked all day everyday for over a decade, and I never thought I could quit, but here I am!
In the past few days, being sober has started to feel more normal than my previous habit of being high constantly! I go to sleep easily, my appetite has returned, and I feel a lot less irritable.
My focus has improved and my memory is better! I wake up feeling rested and not groggy like I used to be.
Most of all I feel much more comfortable socializing with others who are sober, not feeling like I'm constantly trying to disguise how high I am.
I worried before I quit that I wouldn't feel motivated to do boring tasks without weed, but that has proven false. I'm actually more neat than before now that I'm through the weird withdrawal phase!
Also, I've been reading at a much brisker pace than I did when I was high all the time. I'm reading Lonesome Dove right now, and it's a really good read! I've been tearing through the book, reading at least 100 pages a day.
If you're reading this and on the edge of quitting, do it! You can handle it, and when it's over you'll wonder why you were so worried in the first place.
I still get occasional cravings but they're easy to ignore because of all the work I've already put in. I'm not going back!
Also I got hired at a new job as a yoga teacher, so I'm super hyped about that and I don't want to spoil it by being high all the time and a bad instructor.
Thanks leaves community for helping me through a rough patch. I love you guys.
