Fork Me I'm Done
I moved in with my parents when I lost a job. Divorced and with a child they helped me. My father passed away unexpectedly 13 years ago.
I have gone so far as to buy a house of my own and had the pleasure of living in it with my child for 1 week before Mom got "sick" and couldn't live alone.
She can shop, go on vacations, cruises, buy my sibling furniture but the split second I am in her sight (after my 10 hour work day) I have to cook her dinner, clean the floors, do dishes that have sat in the sink all day....you name it.
She buys plants and tells me where to plant them in my yard. When my car blew up she went with me and said she liked a particular car (I did too) but it was out of my $$ range. She said since I drive her around so much she would make half the payments so that I could afford it. NO. Did not happen.
I reminded her and she says I am a blood sucker.
After graduation my child came back to live with me. They fight all day long and meet me at the door to tell me what each one has said. My mother told our neighbor that I beat her and was verbally abusive. He told her to get a recorder and capture the abuse and take it to the police.
I found out and asked her why she would do something like that. She denied it but I found the recorder with recordings of everyone that had come to the house and myself for weeks. I am nearly bankrupt paying for her stuff and my home and car I can't afford.
I am too embarrassed to tell anyone at work what is going on and my sibling knows how she is but won't help. His statement is "I have a life you know".
