I Don't Get Along With My Mom.

I feel like I've reached a breaking point with my mom. I'm 23 years old and I have to tell her where I am all the time and if I don't answer the phone I get screamed at. I've never done anything to make her distrustful of me, never smoked, drank, ran away from home, slept around, nothing. She's paranoid about illness because she's a nurse so she thinks if I have a cough I have cancer right away. She also has the lowest self-esteem I've ever witnessed due to her being overweight, so she projects her problems onto me. We argue constantly and I find myself resenting her much more often than respecting her. I hate that we don't get along, but I think she has deep-seeded mental issues. Sorry to be such a downer, but this is a big problem in my life and God bless you if you read the whole thing. Thanks for reading.
