That doesn't sound like a healthy environment. If you have any able relatives, you should talk to them about it, they may be able to take you in so you can have a more stable home.

The OP said "on a daily basis." That, paired with the fact OP felt the need to avoid Monster Mom gives plenty of info to conclude that maybe OP could live somewhere else. It's not necessarily drastic, either. Some people are just incompatible living together.

I don't think it's that drastic, lots of children move in with relatives while their parents get their lives together. It doesn't have to be permanent, but nobody should feel compelled to hide in their own home. I will concede that we don't know the whole story, but if you replaced the mom with a significant other, the general consensus would likely be to end the relationship.

I would argue that relocating your whole life is a drastic thing to do. also we don't even know how old OP is maybe OP is a teen, I know lots of teens that complain about their parents being "crazing" on a daily basis it's definitely nothing unusual.

youre assuming things... all I said was theres not enough evidence to prove ops mom is abusive. OP is more then likely a teen and teen blow this stuff out of proportion, I am well aware of what physical and psychological abuse can do to someone, I'm just saying you guys need to chill there no way you can know OPs mom is abusive just from this post.

People can have opinions if they want. If you look past how cute dogs are, they really just bark a lot, possibly bite you or others, and take up your resources. Put in the cute part, everybody likes them.

Yo man don't forget that she should've remembered to slap on a condom if she didn't want to deal with the shit on a daily basis, and by the looks of this FML she is, in fact, complaining about it.

Please stop being an idiot. Respect is a two way street you receive the same amount as you give. Being a parent doesn't give a person respect. It was said person's choice to have a child so it's their responsibility to take care of it. Plus no where was op being disrespectful. Just trying to avoid their bat shit crazy mom.

17, I completely disagree. My mother's father abused her regularly when she was young. He doesn't deserve any "respect" from her at all. She refers to him as "sperm donor" because that's all he is to her - not a loving parent, just one half of her DNA. Parents only deserve respect when they do something to earn it, just like everybody else in this world.

#17- Hey honey, parents are human beings whether you like it or not, and have the ability to abuse you like mine and other parents did. It only shows how much of an entitled ignoramus you are. If you treat your kids like shit, I guarantee that your children will treat you the same way in your old age.

That's no excuse. Everything has a limit. Everyone has a limit. So what, you think OP should keep ignoring his mom's attitude for no reason ? Yeah, because if he even dares defend himself, he'll be yelled at even more. WTF Oh wait, I forgot, according to some of the previous commenters, parents are always right and deserve respect. Nope, you earn respect, I don't care if you're my mom, if you treat me like crap and get angry at me everyday without good reason, you don't deserve my attention and respect.

My aunt has done sort of the same thing. Her husband finally found good antidepressants that work very well for his depression and now she's complaining, "he's too happy and energetic all the time now." She has depression herself, but she's in denial about it, so it goes completely untreated. I think that's a contribution to why she doesn't like or can keep up to her husband's attitude anymore.

Once you find the right "cocktail" of prescriptions it makes a world of difference. This is coming from someone who has battled depression and anxiety since his first memory.

Im glad your uncle is doing a lot better. That gives me hope. I have depression myself and it sucks. I spend most of my time alone in my room. Anything I do makes me feel gloomy for no reason.

#51 If you don't mind me asking, how long did you have depression? And what things did you change in your life that made depression easier to handle?

garc, I do not have a memory where I didn't have depression. My depression and anxiety are genetic. For years I was suicidal because I did not understand what was wrong with me, it made me antisocial, and my parents didn't want to deal with it. What has helped me greatly is my Faith in Jesus Christ, educating myself about the disease, finding a doctor who's tailored a drug cocktail to my needs, and a great support network. It's allowed me to further educate others about the disease, to help reduce the stigma of it, I channel my energy into projects (helps with the anxiety) and Church volunteering (helps with the depression). I still have flare ups and episodes but now that I am educated about the disease, as well as using coping skills, it makes it a bit easier to ride out.

It may be possible your mom might have mental issues. Not saying your mom is a crazy person, but my aunt had some similar signs and she had been getting progressively more eratic and crazy as the days went by. Finally we go to the doctor after she hits my grandmother and we find out she's been in a weird depression state with a slight growth in her brain. Not saying it's going to be this bad for you but it doesn't hurt to check.
