How Much Is A Mother Worth These Days?

As most of you know, I am a galloping chicken, and a major procrastinator when it comes to taking care of myself. I know I need to see a doctor (many), a dentist, an opthalmologist, etc., etc., etc... but have put it off forever for lots of reasons, not the least of which is money. So, today I swallowed my pride and decided to go to the city hospital's emergency room as a walk in... and I asked my younger to go with me next week as I am too scared to go alone.

He's got a day off of work on Mondays, and the hospital is less than a ten dollar cab ride, which I would pay for with what I've got left. Guess what he told me? Go on... guess.

He can't be my father for me, and can't handle me when I'm 'like this'. Read: overly emotional. Not to mention he can't wait all those hours in a waiting room with me. This is the same kid that when told of his childhood's cat's demise last week, told me while I can be sad, I shouldn't languish in misery over it. Mind you, I was crying some two hours after I found out the news, myself.

I love my child. Really I do. Someone remind me why?
