    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...

    Today I received two pieces of mail: My latest

    National Geographic, and a letter-sized envelope addressed in my mom's handwriting. I was much more excited about the magazine, because I knew what would be inside the envelope from my mom. I haven't seen my parents since September 2014; I live far away. My dad texts me...

    it's been over a year

    since we talked and I'm starting to miss her. I know she's manipulative and controlling and just messed up, but I miss telling her about my day and stuff. I want to give her another chance to be a real mom but I'm terrified she'll just hurt me again. I need someone to talk to...

    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...

    Is it okay to cut off all connections to my mom?

    She left us when we are kids because she got involved in loan issues. Then we moved out to our house and follow her just to be with her. Then after that she left us again to go work abroad. When she came back she already had another guy. My dad was suddenly been out from her...

    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.

    I haven't been getting along with my mom ever

    since my Dad became seriously ill with cancer and died. It began with her saying she didn't think we needed to come out to see my Dad, because he couldn't talk or hear. And then my Dad didn't want a funeral service. I also suggested coming out there to see her, but she said it...

    Ever since our family decided to move she's been a jerk. We got in a fight the other day and it got intense (she beat me for the first time) and she likes to point out my flaws (I do that to myself as well) and it upsets me. Her verbal abuse has pushed me to self harm. I've been...

    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...

    Our relationship has thawed considerably in the
