    I have had to hide my relationship with my

    boyfriend since I was 14 years old (I am now 18)... I for some reason told my mom he was bi polar (which he told me that he was) I didn't think it was a big deal, and she told me I couldn't go out with him anymore after we had started going out, my mom still doesn't know, almost...

    I have the worst relationship with my roommate.

    (That's what I call my mom) She treats me like a child, I am 17 years old. I'm not allowed to stay out late past 11 and I'm always either locked up at home or at work. I don't even have my own car and it's hard getting to work and to soccer practices. My roommate doesn't...

    First of all, I love my mother to pieces

    but we simply don't get along. Ever since I can remember, we would bicker all the time. She seems to single me out and blames whatever she possibly can on me. It's sadly too obvious because my father, brother, boyfriend, and close friends all notice this. She's gotten physical...

    Well I don't know where to start.

    My parents are getting a divorce soon. And it is my moms fault. She has been having an affair for god knows how long and my Dad is always very sad at home. She has been coming home late (past 12 every night for the past few weeks - so I guess they are getting intimate) while my...

    Most of the time, no.

    But at the same time, I couldn't thank her enough for all that she has done for me!

    It's like it doesn't end,

    the constant bickering all the stress and the tension. It was never like this before, we used to be two peas and a pod, then her stupid boyfriend came in the picture now everything is so different. I look at her and I feel like my best friend is gone, he took her away he changed...

    You know how you can just tell

    if you're the least favorite child? I have always known that's me... My mom and I have always butted heads. I can't remember a point in my life, when being around her didn't stress me out. Don't get me wrong, she isn't physically abusive. However... It feels as though she is...

    My mom and I have never gotten along.

    Due to an inability to accurately express myself, differing views and moodiness on both sides we are usually mad at eachother. I love her with all my heart. She has always been there for me, even when I blamed her for the divorce when I was 2(not her fault.). But we just can't...

    I don't really know what to do anymore.

    At this point, my mom is the main trigger to my depression and anxiety. I don't like being around her, but I don't want to hurt her. She's my mom, I know she loves me, and I love her too but I can not stand being with her for more than a day. I decided that I wanted to stay at...

    My mom doesn't let me do anything.

    I can't hang out with friends, or even chill by myself at the public pool. Then she calls me weird, and complains that I'm at the house all day.

    Not that we fight all the time,

    no. In fact, my mom's a "cool" mom. In high school, everyone was jealous of my freedom. I've never had a curfew (Except when I was grounded), I could date whoever I wanted, go almost wherever I wanted... My mom was strict about certain things: Manners, Drugs/Alcohol and School...

    Don't get along with is an understatement.

    Our relationship is so ******* dysfunctional its crazy. She hurts me and I hurt her. Its become a habitual cycle. Its sad how the one person that you love and cherish the most is the one that hurts and disappoints you the most. I wish that I wasn't so vulnerable to her but its...

    My mother is a borderline mother

    and I just figured this is a psychological thing. I was trying to "discuss" an option with her but it was no option! With my mother, you have to give up for her decision. She had the guts to tell me: my house, my rule. I come in a country were single girls living on their...

    The history with my mom is horrible!

    To be honest I don't actually consider her my mom, but the woman who was the host for me to grow in. First of all she wanted a son not a daughter and boy was she heartbroken and surprised when she got me instead. Every day she made sure I knew she didn't want me or had plans to...

    Hate is a strong word,

    so no I don't (currently) hate her or even dislike her most of the time. In fact she has been helping me with my gran recently, so that's a plus. However I grew up with her as the main influence in my life. My gran was cool, just an accepting type of person. My mom wanted things...

    One of the reasons my mom's relationship with

    Our relationship has thawed considerably in the
