    This post made me sad. I don't think I'd want to have much of a relationship with her after that. My word! I would not say anything except that your money is tied up with medical bills. I would definitely tell my husband. Depending on what type of relationship I had with my father, I'd tell him too. Who knows, she might be lying about what she spent her money on recently, might have a gambling problem, who knows. Very ODD. Go home and do what you can for yourself.

    I don't think she or anyone can tell you what you can tell your husband or others. Also it's really crappy and unimaginable for me for a parent to ask money back for expenses they spend on their kid, even more so if it's from one kid and not the other.
    I say leave and don't look back for a while.

    AGREED!
    My gut is your mom got herself into a gambling, or prescription addiction, or such. Something she is hiding.

    I say you politely ignore and tell her to sue you or love you if she brings it up again. She has no standing to sue you unless you signed something saying you owe the money.
