As long as I can remember my mother
has been a conversation monopolizer.
She has a compulsion to discuss every
detail and if you interrupt her she starts
all over and you will hear about her
Dr. Appt.,the nurse, the nurses mother,
how many children they each have,.their
illnesses etc….I.cant stand it and
try to get her to focus by steering
her back to the original question to
no avail. She thinks I’m mean but with
my.ADD talking to her can be torture. I truly
feel your pain.In true Add fashion I only
read half your post before replying. The
comment of men vs women….I have met just
as many long winded men as women. Women
do not have a monopoly on mind numbing
conversations.
