I Have An Abusive, Controlling Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 135 People

    Argh I'm sick of having to hide the fact I'm a

    smoker. I'm of age, can buy them, but whenever I do- my mum who's a smoker too takes them off me. Telling me I'm stupid and irresponsible. Telling the family it's drugs. I feel like no one sticks up for me in this family when she is so blatantly in the wrong !

    Just now, I got beaten up my mom.

    You know Asian mom's keep beat many of their children. She threw me to the floor and afterward, she kept kicking me and kicking me. I was already bleeding. She yanked my hair and threw me to the ground. She even walked away.

    Not Good Enough

    One of the few things me and my mother have in common; the hate for responsibility. If I found myself at a crossroads and the choice was between right (babysit a mildly retarded child) and left (being chased by two hungry jaguars) I would totally overdosed on minibars and energy...

    Last night my mom kept calling me fat,

    and saying that if I didn't become nicer and more submissive that I'll never get married. Way to go, mom. I feel super great about myself now.

    My mother is a narcissist.

    My dad is her faithful enabler. They have been married for 52 years and to this day he does what she says. My mother was never home growing up. When home, she either got drunk or she got high on meds and disappeared in her rooms. We had a full time cleaning lady-nanny, and...

    Today my mother got angry at me

    and my brother... But of course, she takes it out only on me. I'm bleeding from her nails as I write this. My little brother is just always the perfect little angel in her eyes. I tried to tell her that she is always favoring him, but that just made her kick and hit me harder...

    My mother is manipulative,

    physically abusive, and controlling. All my life I have dealt with the severe beatings, extreme control on my social and home life, and everything else you could imagine. I'm 18 years old and I've never been to a friends house, EVER. I'm 18 and I've never been to a party. It's...

    So my mother has officially stated she doesn't

    like me. And that I'm to have nothing to do with my siblings. Yet she's still managing to ruin my life. My plans, my emotions, my feelings, don't matter. To her, I don't matter. **** you too, *****.

    My mom has been so mean lately.

    Everything I do is wrong. I can't eat, breath, smile, or laugh right. She keeps pushing me and pushing me down, and she elevates the new girl in our house. She can do no wrong, when I can do only wrong. It's hard to stay positive when I'm always sad. I'm a legal adult but I...

    Sometimes it gets so bad with my mom I start

    Abusive Mother

    Since I was a kid I started realizing there was something wrong with my mom. When I first started speaking I told her I didn't like her, and I'm sure there must be a reason for that, which I burried somewhere deep in my mind. I have also wanted to run away since forever. I've...

    She is definitely the most obnoxious,

    selfish, paranoid, oblivious idiot I've ever had the joy of knowing in my life :/ you may think I am being harsh but she is the main reason today why I self harm, am depressed, have no self esteem and currently am suicidal.

    Hi... I think I have an Abusive Mother.

    My mom always gets angry at me, for the most stupid reasons; I have always felt like I am walking on eggshells around her. I just don't know how shes going to react. She calls me names, calls me fat, ugly.. etc. When she gets angry she comes at me and hits and kicks me repetedly...

    Why did Mom notice *she* was hurting

    and not me? Why did Mom notice she wanted to hurt herself but my me? Why did mom know she was sexually abused and not me? Why didn't mom notice how abusive my relationship was? Why is mom helping her through her demons and not me? Why won't she see me?

    Daughter, I Don't Like The Way You Look.
