    Hello, I'm almost 14 years old

    and I'd like to share my experience. I always had a ruff time with my mother growing up. She was very quick to anger and really only had one way of seeing things. Well, as I got older, the real issue started: I started puberty and developing "curves" . My mother noticed that and...

    My mother tells me she never holds a grudge

    for long. Which translates to, she'll never stay angry about something for long initially, but will store it away in the back of her mind forever until the time when she can bring it back up to cause maximum guilt and damage in an argument.

    Since about age 13, I've dealt with severely

    psychotic episodes and manic outbreaks from my mother. At first I thought that it was just unhappiness which stemmed from her becoming part time and eventually leaving her work because my dad's income increased, but I have come to realize it is something far more psychologically...

    My 10 year old made my grandmother a card

    and a story while she was in the hospital. At dinner, after the funeral my mother felt the need to make sure he knew she never got it because she was too far gone. He was crushed. She just volunteered this randomly for no reason. My wife and I looked at each other like WTF?

    She keeps her cat litter box under the kitchen

    table and never cleans it. She also keeps her dog chained to the kitchen table and never lets it loose. It pees and poops on the floor right under where she eats. The dog also eats all the cat turds so my mother doesn't even bother to clean the litterbox.
