Frankly I'm amazed I got through Thanksgiving without a fight with dear old mom. She's 91 and lives with me. She likes to take over and treat my house like it's hers. You know that type?
It was Saturday after Thanksgiving and she was getting ready to go to a friends house for a birthday party for their daughter.
My mother commented that she didn't really want to go so I responded, "Ma, if you don't want to go, don't go." She snapped back at me, "Oh, stop it." I'm like, what the hell did I say?
I was trying to be supportive. But she took it as I didn't want to take her to the party. So now she's not talking to me, but frankly, I like it.
I don't have to listen to her go on an on about nothing. Does anyone else have a mother who gets mad at the drop of a hat and then gives the silent treatment? I'm sick of it. She makes my home life miserable. I'm happier at work!
I've been putting up with this for 10 long years. My 3 brothers are no help AT ALL. I have no one to turn to as everyone has passed away that could be supportive. I'm stuck in this merry go round of misery until she dies.
Please tell me I'm not alone!
