    All of her life my Mom has been a victim.

    Every thing that has happened to her has shaped her into this person that I just can't stand. When my Dad left her when I was 15 I began developing a codependent relationship with her that has evolved into something that at 28 years old, affects me more than I ever thought it...

    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 is the only thing holding me back.

    She treats me the worst out of her kids. My older brother is in college so she misses him, my little brother is her "baby" so nothing he does is wrong, and then there's me. I've struggled with Anxiety and depression for over a decade, and it came to the point of me trying to...

    I obviously do love my mom

    so much. I mean she is my mother. Lately we haven't been getting along at all. I'm 24 and had my first son at 14. My mom and him have a very special bond. They're VERY close. Lately he has been in some trouble, so we grounded him. He got mad and locked himself in his room to...

    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...

    I bet many people can relate to what I have

    been through. I at least hope someone can relate in some way. My mother has always tried to get under my skin and she sucks at it. When I say this, I mean she doesn't take things easy with me anymore. After she also cheated on my father with some random guy she met in college, I...

    months ago, and now I can't even really get her to call me. its so sad to me that she can just drop her oldest daughter like she was nothing, and now when I see her all I can think about is how angry I am, and I'm pretty sure that I can't forgive her for what she's done for a...

    that interested. I can say that my mom is a very honest person. That's about all I respect about her. Her last call, which I hadn't answered but she left a message, was to let me know that she hated me and that I'm a "stupid ****." When I texted her about it, her response was...

    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...

    Me and my mom haven't been getting along.

    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...
