My mom and I haven’t had the best relationship in the past few years. Last year was the first year I talked to her after not talking to her for over two years. But lately, these past few months especially, we talked more often and things had somewhat gotten back to normal. I won’t go into details, mainly cause it would make this post super long, but basically she has been living in a homeless shelter in St. Louis, where she was able to find work so she could save up to get back to California. And upon waking up this morning, I read a text from her saying:
"I love my children- love don witt- dont have enough umph in me 2 do life again. people leave u and i dont?? i am tired and hurt that i am not loved. Tuff love is bullshit. U kids r bestthings 2 me."
That was received at 4:50 am this morning California time (August 11th). Neither my brother, my dad, or me has heard from her or been able to reach her since. My mom has major issues with alcohol, lately has remained sober, but I fear the worst. She has been upset over her ex since late last year, and had issues with a woman she stayed with for a bit before the shelter. I’m worried that she drank herself into a ditch. The last time I talked to her on the phone was August 4th, and she was telling me that she was tired from working two jobs: one as security for the St Louis Rams and one at some grocery store. I noticed that when I talked to her then, she sounded off, not her usual self. I fear her thoughts got the best of her and consumed her and she resorted to drinking which led to who knows what. I honestly don’t know what to do except wait for any sign from her, if there even is one.
If it’s not too much to ask, please reblog this, and hopefully someone in the St Louis area might recognize her or will have heard something in the local news. Her name is Donna Bundy, she is 52, and somewhere around the height of 5’6”, probably quite thin as well. If you hear anything or see her please message me, I would greatly appreciate it.
I can only hope that she hasn’t taken her life, as her text seemed to suggest, or that she hasn’t drank herself into a ditch. Please spread this around as much as you can. Thank you.
