How Can We Be Related?!

I really have a problem with accepting the fact that we are related. I do not know how two people that are from the same blood can be completely different. My mother annoys the hell out of me. Her personality is irritating and we do not see eye to eye on anything. I get quite jealous of other people's relationships with their mother. Not expecting to be best friends but I would like a closeness with my mother and to be able to go shopping together or out for coffee or lunch and enjoy that time together. Unfortunately this has become more of an issue to me since due to my heart condition I have had to move home for awhile. My mother resents the fact that she has to share her space with me..since we are all grown and should be out on our own. Believe you me I wish I didn't need their support. I cover everything financial always pay my own way. Not a free loader, if anything I'm too generous with my money and often help them out. I'm glad to see I'm not the only daughter with issues with her mother. i just need to sort my health out before i ruin our relationship altogether.

I can totally relate to you! My mom actually stopped talking to me for awhile when she found out I smoked pot. I use it to treat my glaucoma & bi-polar. We have nothing in common, she's very judgmental. Never helped me when I was 18 & pregnant except force me to get married. Ruined my life. Never told me about boys or birth control. She's a piece of work. Thanks for letting me vent!!<br />
I guess we just have to grin and bear it. I don't argue, what's the point. I'll never be right. Oh well just hoping my dad outlives her, truth be told...
