I live with my mom. She sometimes goes on long rants or rambles about things that should actually be two-way conversations. This is frustrating and invalidating to me. I would like to have normal conversations with my mom, but sometimes it does not seem possible. She has a habit of droning and rambling, and it's a little disconcerting. I don't know if I'm overreacting, and if this is all in my head, or if her droning and having a monologue instead of a dialogue is not normal. It's like a pressured, forceful way of speaking - I have heard this is a symptom of some mental disorders. Has anyone had a similar experience?
