How do I cope with my mom's constant selfishness?

Asked by

She's very self absorbed, never listens and the conversation always has to be about her and her problems. If she helps me I am made to feel guilty. I want to get away and be happy. Help!!!

Your profile says Mom suffers from depression. Is she being treated for it --- Meds? Counseling? What are the living arrangements, are you sharing? How old is she?
What is keeping you from getting away? Sorry for so many questions but it is all relevant.
Yeah, she's been depressed and on meds 30 years. Had lots of counselling. I live on my own and she lives in a small flat. Well she's my mum and she doesnt have anyone else.
