I Didnt Have a Great Mother

was your mum worse than mine???? 94 People

    She was a alcoholic when I was young.

    Then I took care of her later in life when she started to get dementia. She was always hot and cold with me. One day when I explained to her she may someday lose her memory. She responded " Good and I hope your the first person I forget"!. That comment will stay with me the rest...

    Mom Learned From the Best,

     It's strange how families work. My grandma was good to me most of the time and horrible to her own children(HORRIBLE), family regrets tend to turn  parents into great Grandparents sometimes, but only if they realize and/or admit it. People make horrible mistakes...

    A Little of This, and a Little of That...

    Yeah, both of them. I suppose if Frankenstein could take all the bad out of each, and splice them together into some form of 'supermother' leaving only their good qualities, then I guess that wouldn't be so bad. :)

    Victim Of Circumstance

    My mother never really seemed to care much for my sister and I. Now, I can't say she didn't honestly try. She got us the things we needed when we were younger. Though we had no idea that she was on drugs. She had been doing coke for awhile now. After things started to go down...

    Red Headed Step Child...

    Sad part is I am supposed to be her real daughter but sometimes I do wonder. I don't look like any of the others. I don't act like any of the others. I certainly didn't receive the same treatment as the others. Still working on lots of issues including the no hugging thing, the...

    Ever since I was a little child,

    my mom would slap me and yell at me that I am stupid and I should just die. I remember she pushed me out of our house while it was raining and threw me my diapers while saying to me that I should just go away. I am not allowed in the house anymore. I stayed outside crying for...

    it's painful to think about her.

    she has dementia and is living in a hospital. I work to pay her bills. she has many flaws and did many things wrong but I just can't turn my back. I don't talk to her and don't want to see but I don't want to think when she dies.

    I Don't

    For as long as I can remember my Mother has put her children last to herself and her boyfriends. I am not over reacting either. My mom remarried when I was about  9 or 10.. My step dad was a monster, yelling, emotional abuse, he never hit me. but sometime I wish he would...

    I remember my mom saying things like 'you look

    like a tramp in that' and 'I should've gotten you aborted' and slapping me, but I also remeber her holding my hands on mine when I chopped carrots as a kid and her freaking out when I broke my arm. I have kind of mixed feelings about her now.
