    I'm not such a big help.

    ...I've been having this thought a lot lately

    but I sometimes wish my mom wasn't my mom. I love her with all my heart but she feels more like a distant relative instead of my mother. She doesn't talk to me. Because of that I don't talk to her. Whenever I'm going through something I try to talk to her but she just doesn't...

    my mother is going to be the reason I go insane.

    I can't even. don't get me wrong, I love her, but I literally cannot deal with her at the moment. I've never been so frustrated at her my entire life!

    Please bear with this rant of mine.

    I'm very frustrated at the moment. My mom gets mad very easily. I don't know if it's just her or if it's menopause. But she will say really hurtful things then 20 minutes later she'll act like nothing ever happened. When I was 17 she was bitching at me about something, I don...

    She blabs everything I say to everyone we know.

    I know she means well, but I've stopped confiding in her - I know whatever I say will be repeated ten minutes later to my siblings, and my grandma, and Mom's neighbors, and it'll be brought up in church and added to the prayer list in the bulletin... I love my mother so much...

    She has a huge hindsight.

    She married a man we all despise of, and she is still married to him. What justifies her choices?

    Most days with my mother aren't so pleasant for a lot of reasons many people wouldn't understand or want to comprehend. On rare occasions is she the person i want to be around. God knows I love her, but shes literally a thorn in the foot. She's not strict or none of that mess...

    where she tries to be "cool" it's not pretty. It looks like Elmo's getting eaten by a snake and crying for help

    I love my Mom, but I wish she didn't try

    and be my best friend all the time. I don't want to hear negativeness about my dad. And I just wish out of the 20 phone calls per day one of them could at least be positive. And I feel bad for even feeling this way.

    If she knew any of the many things I do

    and enjoy she would kill me. No joke. She is and honest-to-God Christian and I do drugs, sleep with many men and women, and do so much immoral deeds. She would boil me in holy water and curse me to hell.

    My mother and father cared about money a lot.

    Is it unladylike to hang out in a local

    downtown coffee shop? My mother says that it is after I told her I met a very nice person there and spent a few hours downtown. She equated it to a barfly and said it was inappropriate. This is old-fashioned thinking, I believe, but maybe she is right?

    She keeps talking about me behind my back.

    I just found out she's been doing it again - she gossiped about me to my aunt and uncle. Now I'm planning to skip Thanksgiving dinner; I'm horrified she shared my personal business again. I'm so sad to miss the holiday meal - it's my favorite holiday of the year.
