My mom is insane…
It’s driving me crazy. My parents divorced when I was 2 and my mother chose to abandon her life and took care of my two older brothers and I, which I respect and appreciate from the bottom of my heart. But depression had set in slowly and it’s getting worse, she is obssessive of us kids and it’s driven my two brothers away into the military, which left me alone with her. She’s probably sensing her imminent plight of being completely alone, she is starting to restrain my life. She says I am an extremely inconsiderate daughter if I spend some time with my boyfriend, and if i stay any later than say 11pm, she would actually question my morality and call me a ****. Not wanting to deal with these problems and feeling guilty, i started staying with her whenever I am not with him. Now I have very few friends that’d hang out with me because I usually have to refuse their invitation to hang out. She is also very verbally abusive, if any little thing didn’t go as she wants she would go batsh*t crazy and call me all kinds of names. Did I mention I am a 22 year old with 2 jobs? I’d love to move out but it’s just not that simple, first off my brother would blame me for not taking care of our mother when I am the only sibling left. And if I turn against my family then I would really have no one… And without me she would truly be lonely and I don’t know what she’s capable of.
But I really can’t take it anymore… Most recently she cursed my boyfriend out and hope that he’d cheat on me and dump my ’sorry as*’ … And she wonders why I don’t like to come home. She is usually in such self pity misery that nobody wants to be around her, and I really do t know what is best for her. I know what I beed to do to make myself happy but if I move out it would kill her, but living with her is getting unbearable by day. What should I do????
