    Abusive Mom

    Just when I think I’m finally getting along with my mom she treats me like dirt again. I’ve wanted to move out of my parents house since I was 18. I was kicked out at 16 for a short period and lived with my best friend’s family. I never moved out until 30, but would stay with friends, family, and boyfriends prior to that. I’ve faced many struggles in my life. Whenever I seemed to get my life together she’d threaten to kick me out. It’s like she wants to see me fail. She says she loves me and wants what is best for me, but I think she’s selfish. She’ll buy me things and be there for me. She’s a nurse and I know it stresses her out. My father is also disabled. He has IBM, which is similar to ALS. My mom had breast cancer and beat it. That was hard for me. I love my mom, but hate her at the same time. I’ve gained weight from psychiatrist pills I’m basically forced to take and she’ll call me fat and lazy. I’m trying to lose weight, but it’s a struggle. She is even physically abusive sometimes. #venting #unhealthyrelationsips #mom #Daughter #strength #PTSD #Abuse


    Really Need Advice

    I really need honest thoughts from anyone that could please help me understand my daughter. What took place is her graduation was June 10th, but I missed it because I was in the hospital. Unfortunately I am disabled and I have issues where my digestion just stops. It is the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life. I am currently following up to see if surgery might be something that could help. Anyways my daughter yelled at me for days saying I was lying and not being honest. She yelled at me asking why did I not call her sooner. When I was put on the ambulance bed I accidentally dropped my cell so I didn’t have her number and I was on morphine for the pain so I just didn’t think about it. Im usually good about calling but I didn’t have her number or anyone else’s number, Im just use to having my cell.

    So a month goes by and I kept trying to get ahold of her to work things out. I ended up finding out that my daughter actually blocked me on her cell. I was so crushed to find this out and its all because I didn’t make it to her graduation. When I last talked to her she was just yelling and said she was going to hang up and go take a shower because that was one thing she could control in her life. Yesterday I texted her stepmom just letting her know about my daughter blocking me. She said, oh your daughter said you blocked her. I told her never would I ever do such a thing. I just got a text from my daughter saying I need to properly apologize then she will talk to me. What did I do I have no idea, and I did already apologize to her letting her know that I would have much rather been with her on her big day. I do see red flags going off in my mind but wanted to see if anyone might have some advise.

    thank you!

    Depression #why #help #IsItMe #misslife #freindsgone

    Please send me some positive vibes. Feeling like I’m going further down due to Covid, no job, where did my friends go I think they left because they couldn’t take my depression. I am in between my husband And sister Who did not have a place to stay so he said stay here and now it’s going on too long. My daughter has my love and it’s affecting her she does not want to come by me anymore we have to go to her house which is an hour away. I’m just feeling real down. I try to please everyone myself. I’m not pulling the crybaby blame card But I am. I don’t hear from my friends I text them and they just text me maybe two or three words back not like it used to be. I’m just so down and lonely I make jewelry, my wreaths , i’m trying to set up an account online I get so confused PayPal and all that jazz. I try to learn everything on my own I do ask my husband or daughter and they just get frustrated. I want my life back. I really never post anything about myself but going down and I need some happiness from people on this group. Help me through the day. I wish you all the best ❤️#newday #stopYelling at me ##Daughter please don’t leave me

    A little thankyou pressie #Daughter-in-law #ThankYou #CheckInWithMe

    Good Morning Everyone

    How are you today.
    Its Easter weekend. Good Friday.

    My beautiful daughter-in-law has brought me round some shopping again. As I'm at home shielding from the virus with multiple chronic illnesses.

    So I bought her a little thankyou pressie. We both love our dogs.
    🐶🐾. This candle has a little carved dog in the wax. How cool. So even after the candle has gone, she has something to keep and look at. It's a little spotty carved dog.

    So I'm saying Thankyou to her
    But also thankyou to all of you too. Thankyou for being here and supporting each other. Thankyou for cheering everyone one. Thankyou for laughing and smiling and crying happy tears. Thankyou for being You.
    Much love Tj

    my daughter my friend

    #Grief #Daughter
    I write every day now, but its it's not always about you.
    I wote about the day you left me,
    it's 2700 words.
    if I wrote about you every day it would be 30 million words.
    but yet it would not bring you back, what I've lost cannot be put into words.
    its a feeling only known by a parent who lost their soul as I did.
    our story is not unusual but yet it's our story, and no one else's.
    our story has twist and turns that makes it ours, and no one else's.
    it was only you and I when you came into the world. then it was only you and I when you left.

    How to find #Employment with multiple disabilities? Both Emotional & physical disabilities?

    I have been emotionally & physically disabled since I was a child. I use a #Walker currently to get around & cant lift due to #Scoliosis. I also have been stable emotionally for a decade+, but have #SchizoaffectiveDisorder & several other emotional issues. I want to #Work - I don’t want to live on the system for the rest of my life. I’m fiercely independent & want a good life for myself, my #Daughter & my family. I have some college, but no degree due to lack of concentration. Hardly any work experience either. How do I get a #Job? Open to any positive #suggestions


    As a mother what do I say when my daughter tells me she is sad?

    #sad #Daughter


    Another day in hell

    Hate haven to wake up knowing I’m haven to battle on anther day without my girl, I miss her like crazy and long for the day I’m back with her ##ChildLoss #Grief #Daughter



    There's a huge difference between the #mother who makes of her #Daughter a #friend , and the mother who makes of her an #enemy ..
    Think about it!! 💔
