It seems you can't win with her, just don't pay attention to what she says, you will never be right in her eyes, even when trying to do good

Part of me wonders if this could be a hormone issue. My mom used to have RIDICULOUS screaming fights with me and take slight over the smallest issues constantly, even if it was one of those things that no one can help, like the dryer breaking due to an old heating coil. I was the one to use it last so I must have "broken it because I don't know how to use it properly". Later, during some routine blood tests the doctor found out her thyroid was working double time, making her overtly

I would love if I could get my mom to do that. She does that to and gets mad at the tiniest of things. My dad secretly told me she has bipolar but doesn't take pill because she doesn't like what it does to her. I know that's why she gets so mad so quick but I wish she'd just take her pills.

It could also be something like Borderline Personality Disorder, but that's really hard to diagnose and treat. My mom has it and acted just like this. I used to feel relieved after she finished screaming at me because I knew it was over for the day. Waiting for the random anger was worse

as someone who has bipolar, yes the pills do suck. it took me ( no joke) eleven different medications to find me something that worked and keeps working. it's all trial and error. many made me feel horrible, one I slept for 2 days straight, headaches etc and so on. Sooo no, that one might not be the one for her. talk to her bc there are many out there to try.

My mom also yelled at us, me and bro , for small things but I think it's because she actually never enforced her rules and after a certain point we just stopped caring about rules because she wouldn't do anything. I believe that it's because she doesn't have actual power and all she can do is yell and scream. By time I was 15 I fully understood that she wouldn't actually do anything so I started acting like a shit on purpose as if it was me punishment for not having a backbone to make us d

This is the reason why parents can't get angry when you leave them. If you are gonna want to bitch about every single little thing, no one wants to be around you

As much as I agree with you, it's hard to ignore that sort of thing if it happens on a daily basis. It's not easy to ignore such abuse, especially from someone who is supposed to love and care for you.

Exactly. She probably would have yelled at OP just as much for NOT plugging the phone into the charger.

From personal experience, I'd say be careful about doing that. My mum's then-partner would bitch me out for everything under the sun. The one time I ignored her, she pushed me off a chair, and my head wound up centimetres from a sharp corner on a wooden chest. So be careful with doing that, OP

Even if it were a 'natural mom thing' to yell at people, that doesn't make it right, or healthy for anyone involved. If anything, it's unnatural to feel compelled to yell at someone everyday, regardless of the logic used to justify it.

If she was trying to completely flatten the battery - Did you explain how lithium ion battery tech works? I'm sure she'll understand.

As someone who lives in a similar situation and has tried that before, it only escalates things for the next few days and reminds you how pointless resisting is.

You can't be around negative people and expect to live a positive life. It sounds like she tries to find any excuse to be pissy. Sometimes it's better to not take the things they say to heart and love those kinds of people from afar
