    I really can't stand it here.

    What ever I do isn't appreciated, and mostly from my mom. I mean when I cook, or clean she has something negative to say. So when I don't do either its always: "I'm always on my feet cleaning, cooking, and taking care of all you." That is pure bull sh*t. You have a room that...

    I've been wanting to stay with my dad

    for the summer for a long time. It really upsets him that I'm 17 and can't even spend 30 days with him. He tries to understand because of my mom's condition. My mom is just literally so attached to me that she freaks out if I go any where. It's really set me back in life a lot...

    that is so close to you, like a parent for instance, can make you feel that way.

    I think every family has problem.

    They just don't share it out loud which is what it should be sometimes. Sharing bad thing about your people to the world is not the best to find solution, especial in social medias. Many times the only way is to have a conversation and face each others. ... Well, may be it is no...

    My mom frets all the time about my outward

    appearance and not about my inward, which has made me very insecure. And a bit dysfunctional in the head, probably, now that I'm looking at the causes of sadistic/masochistic personalities and maladaptive daydreaming.
