Mom Is An Addict!

I rarely get a phone call from my mother — maybe once every several months — and never get an e-mail. I'm lucky if she "likes" a Facebook post or sends a text. I've tried calling and e-mailing but usually get no response. She says she's eager to visit and be a grandmother to my kids, but I don't see a lot of effort. For what it's worth, she divorced my father a few years ago and is trying to have a second adolescence (ditching family for parties, talks of little besides partying and drinking, texting while driving with my children in the car, etc.). Yes, I realize this is deeper than a tendency to text, but I can't even make the first steps toward repairing our relationship if all I get is a "like" once in a while. What do you think?
