Today, I asked my mom why she drinks. She said she only drinks when she's depressed. My step-dad said she only drinks on the weekend. Those are the days I'm at her house. FML

Dude why talk to your mom cuz you might find out something worse like u got adopted or something I would just stay away from her And I'm not tryin to be a dick

Also true, but it's implied here that OP depresses his/her mom, and is thus the reason for her drinking. If you don't even like your own child, then why have kids? Stuff like that just baffles me.

That's like saying if you don't like pie, don't eat. You don't get to pick the kind of child you will get. You also don't have full control over how they turn out, despite what many people seem to believe. Also, just because you're of the same blood, does not automatically make you compatible personality-wise, or shield you against psycho offspring. It can be very hard to get along or love each other sometimes. OP's mother could feel like a failure over it, and/or OP could be at fault and not realize it. You don't really know. But is it not depressing? Have some compassion and try to understand everybody's side of the situation.

That's not always true, my step dad was going to take custody of me when he and my mother almost divorced. He would have still been my stepdad but they wouldn't have been married. That's sort of a narrow assumption. :/
