    She Doesn't Seem To Get It

    I try to talk to her, but it always ends in a fight. She just can't look at things the way I see it. Like her husband. I don't want to call him "Dad". He isn't my father. And she says that calling him by his name is disrespectful. If I say "Uncle", she says he's not my uncle. It...

    I Just Want Her To Stop.

    I constantly attempt to talk to her, to tell her how terribly her verbally abusive behavior is. She never listens. She gets so defensive, telling me how good I have it and storming away. She's so indifferent to me when she isn't yelling at/verbally attacking me. When I want to...

    Not Just Me

    It's everybody. My mother never listens. She interrupts you when you're talking and butts in. Sometimes she doesn't even pay attention, or completely skews your words. Part of it is her being so defensive. She constantly thinks that you're attacking her, and she is offended so...

    I Can't Talk To Her.

    It's not that I don't want to talk to her because I've tried. She has so many inner distractions with her Schizophrenia that it takes her five minutes sometimes up to twenty just to say 'Huh?' and when I repeat myself, it takes her another two minutes to repeat what I said and...

    The thing with my Mother is

    that she hears me, but she doesn't listen to what I'm saying. So when I'm trying to explain something, or point out a fact, she thinks that I'm talking back to her -.-

    I Don't Want Advice

     My mom is a good mom. Mostly. She and I get along okay, but the problem is she doesn't know me. She doesn't like me because she doesn't know who I am.      I come to her with a problem. I tell her how unhappy I am. I tell her I don't like...
