I Have a Crazy Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 916 People

    I'm so glade I was adopted!

    my birth mother can not except the responsibility of her mistakes and 27 years later is still blaming other people for her actions. It is so sad that she is so afraid of owning her past that it is stopping her from having and developing a relationship with her kids now.

    My mother is very inconsiderate of my feelings

    and emotionally irrational. She handles arguments very poorly as though a war and the end of the world. For this reason we have never been and will never be close. She goes off over reacting and then curses my future children, saying they will do everything I do to her to me...

    I love her and she loves me in a very odd often

    quite hurtful way. As I have got older I have learnt to spend time with her but put less value on what she says or thinks. She had a very vivid dream which she has just realised was about me. She had a pet rabbit. She loved the rabbit very much but it was very unruly. It...

    Mom

    I really do have a crazy mother. She is not happy unless someone else is miserable. For starters she took me to a bloody psychiatrist just because she found out I was smoking at the age of 13. It was battle after battle. She would flirt with my boyfriends so it got to the point...

    I Have A Crazy Mother!

    The only good memories I have we're of my very young childhood, where I lived in complete ignorance and didn't grasp the dysfunction around me. My life started tumbling down when I turned 13. It must've been that new teenage mile stone my mom probably dreaded. A year prior to my...

    When I was a child, my mother taught me to be

    afraid of my father. She always told me he didn’t want to be bothered by me, and that I should leave him alone. That happens in a lot of divorce situations, right? Only my parents weren’t divorced. My mother just didn’t want to share my father with anyone. Even his...

    Although my mother is insane, she has been there for me since day 1. BUT I cannot take her anymore. She is one of the most judgement, harsh, and strict human beings I know. When my mom was in college, she did lots of drugs such as speed and weed which is why my brother and I...

    My Mum Causes Every Fight In The Family

    My family is very peaceful. Except my mother. She loves drama and quickly gets bored when it's peaceful, so she starts fights, doesn't talk to me for days, when she is confronted she would avoid the conversation, and only passively show that she's angry. I can endure other things...

    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.

    The crazy daughter is me. We have a lot of fun. To her delight and my pretend horror people who do not know us assume we're sisters. She loves it! Considering she looks young for her age hopefully that will be the case for me if I have a daughter/daughters.
