I am in my early 50's and live with my mom. We have never been close and she always puts me down. How do I survive emotionally living with her?
I am in my early 50's, some disabilities physically. I live with my mother, my dad passed 12 years ago. I have 5 siblings. And one son.
My mother and I have never been close, never. She hurts, cuts, digs, and my self esteem is nothing. I am depressed and hurt and feel worthless.
I do everthing in the house, yard, etc. She is 79. I forgot that, works part time.
She is, as she feels better, the victim, poor me etc. She is mean and I cannot say I love her, there is a past to my childhood. She is so nice in front of others, never to me or her children or grandchildren. No one will help me or call or even visit, they do not want her abuse and cuts. Everone says move out. She needs me, but eve to talk to her she is upset that she is perfect, will pget mad and close her door to her room. I picked on her. She doesn't say thank you, please. She doesn't care that I hurt or get sick, just her. I am tired, so tired, and my health is going fast.
