I Dont Get Along With My Mother

    I Have Really Tried.

    She is just too ridiculous. I have LITERALLY tried everything to get a great relationship... It just isn't meant to be. And I see that now. This "relationship" we have is just a big *** lie. I don't really like her and vice versa. I deal with her because it's the right thing...

    My mum yells at me every.

    Frakking. Day. She says really mean things like 'Why did I give birth to you' and 'Either you get out of the house or I will' and 'You're such a burden. The fact that I know it's coming doesn't make it easier to take on. Frankly, I want to run away but I can't. I need help.

    My mom complains about everyone's appearance

    especially obese people. she says thing like "see that woman over there she should wear something else" or other things along those lines. I'm a size ten and she insults me on my weight. I have body issues and she makes jokes about it. So I don't want to get help.

    Our relationship is like a bank,

    if I can't give her what she asking for she calls and curses me to pieces. I don't know why she's like that. She see me as a money machine. She treats me horrible but no one else is allowed to in her eyes how ironic. She never taught me how to be a young lady or woman. To busy...

    I just had the biggest row with my mother

    and I told her I feel like I have to be the adult in my relationship with her and that she behaves like a child. She says she thinks I'm trying to hurt her feelings.
