    Its hard when your parent says your crazy

    after time and time again you tell them you get emotionally bullied and they don't seem to care or don't even like talking to you.

    I feel as if my mum hates me.

    She always attacks me for being just like my father and brings me down because of it. I am currently having relationship problems and I feel as if because she thinks I am so much like my father that when it comes to my relationship problems I'm the only one to blame. She...

    My mum has been clinically depressed throughout

    my life, and my dad has anxiety & much deeper problems but refuses to get help or take medication. I know it's not their fault but the way they are has affected me. I wish my family was normal, I wish I had a normal life

    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...

    My dad passed away 3 years ago

    and my mom can't let go until now. She refuses to move on. Sometimes she forgets who's dead and who's alive. And she has a bad themper. She also has an unpredicted mood. So three of us (me and my sisters) must be ready whenever her bad side came out. She's not abusive in...
