    Weird

    She got protective when I was 10 or so, which sort of aligns with other things that happened to me during that time. It's not surprising that she got clingy. But it's strange. You'd think she'd look over me mentally as well, but I was always a mere space to be contained. As long...

    You'll Never Walk Alone

    She didn't say that, but it was true.... But everywhere I went, she went with me. When I was 15, and wanted to go to my friends house, she walked with me. I didn't hang out at friends houses like other kids. I didnt really have friends anyways. When I did, she was always THERE...

    Having An Overprotective

    Is being over protective a good or bad thing? Growing up my mother was over protective to the point where I hated her for it. I always felt she did not trust me. Truth was I was not allowed to do the same things as my sisters were at my age due to my learning difficulties. She...

    Going Berzek

    My mom was way over protective. I had epilepsy and she really did not want me out of her sight in case I had a big seizure. My curfew was 10pm until I moved out at 20. No joke. It was her rules. Yet, my brother. Oh he could come and go as he pleased. No questions asked. I had...

    It's interesting to look back on life now

    Parental Protection Overload

     Both my parents were very protective of the four of us growing up. I used to have to beg and plead for things I needed as well as siblings. If we wanted to go anywhere we had to beg. I stayed out one time past curfew and got a lecture and grounding. I was the oldest of the...
