I have had really bad luck with my grandchildren. My oldest got married and she and I were great friends...right up till they had their first child....then it was all her parents and I was cut out of everything, and talked about to the kids...four grandsons layer and a divorce....I have a somewhat good relationship with the three older boys, they understand what happened and how their mother is, one will have nothing much to do with is mom....but the youngest is still a bit in the dark, I now live in Arizona so try to stay n touch with social media...they're teens and have their own things goings on. My youngest just disowned me and I am not to have anything to do with my new grand baby....he was in the hospital for self injury and I had said a few things to the Drs that he needed to be kept in order to get some help....his wife and a whole lot more to tell me and his mother in law...but now it is all me that said whatever and I can not say anything about was told to me as it would start issues between him and hi wife and be a big mess....and my infant grand son need both of them more than he needs me...someday maybe, There is Karma in this world, what goes around, you reap what you sow......been crying all morning.....I was so hoping 2016 be a good year

You haven't had bad luck with grandchildren, only with children not bending to your expectations. Find your happiness elsewhere. Not everybody ends up with grandchildren who fit the stereotype. Life can still be happy.

Your post is hard to follow. You said you have a somewhat good relationship with some of them, and keep in touch on social media, and that you're out of state. You don't really say what the issue is. One of them disowned you... why? Your infant grandson DOES need his own parents more than he needs you...

Sounds like you've been meddling into their business, and they've had enough of you. Stay out of their business.

Agree I can't follow your post. It sounds as if you interfered with the doctors when you shouldn't have. Not sure what advice you are looking for....

You felt like it was ok to talk to your adult grandson's doctor? Oh how I hope I am reading this wrong...because that is bazar. If you were my grandmother, Id cut you out too.

Don't you think that the poor woman has had enough? Let's cut some slack here.

I agree that the original post is incomprehensible. And, hence, let's not be too quick to judge.

I can tell you are hurting regarding your relationships with your family. Try to continue with the ones who you have good relations with and let the others go for a while. One word of advice I can offer is to be a good listener without interfering, passing judgment, or offering unsolicited advice.
