I'm 32 years old, married and live about 1,000 miles from my parents. I generally see them twice a year, when they travel through the area on their way north for the summer or south for the winter. This year my husband and I are flying up to spend a few days in their town. My problem is that my relationship with my mother and at times my father, has always been stressful. I love my parents and I know they love me but the relationship has been very toxic for a good deal of my life.
