Dear Donna, I was wondering if you might be able to help me with my problem. I think others might have this problem too but aren’t honest with themselves as to how much of a problem it is to them. I have a really toxic relationship with my mum. She says she loves me, but
Sometimes despite being as prepared as we possibly can be – the shit still hits the fan!
