My mom is driving me crazy.
I’m 18 years old and a freshmen at college. She has always been controlling over my life and no one, not even my dad, can help because she controls the entire family. I’m back for winter vacation and she’s worse than ever. Her new “thing” to criticize me about is my weight (I’m 5 ft. 6 in., weigh less than 120 pounds, wears a size 0, etc.). I HAVE put on a lot of weight since the beginning of freshman year and now trying to cut back despite the fact that people tell my I’m thin. Anyways, my mom is unreasonable, other than trying to make me lose weight, she gets mad at everything I do and starts yelling at me for it. I don’t do drugs, I have curfew when I come home and I also tell her where I’m going out at night. I’m afraid of saying anything around her because anything will set her off in a really bad way. I’m afraid to talk to anyone because I’ve been keeping it in all these years, and even though I’m at the right age to move out and have a life of my own, my parents support my college tuition, etc.
Just today, I went out running because I know she wants me to get exercise (which has been hard for the past few weeks because of exams) but my thyroid medicine made my asthma worse so I could barely run without having a hard time breathing. Of course, my mom didn’t believe me and thought it was because I was just sitting around eating, which is an exxageration, despite the fact that I was wheezing in front of her. She later made waffles and I refused and she told me not to be ridiculous…very confusing…I have been dealing with her insaneness all these years and after this, I wanted to speak up and hopefully get some feedback. Thanks.
