Just tell her that her behaviour is pushing you away and ruining your relationship with her. If she keeps it up she's going to lose you, hopefully that will help make a difference.
Some of us will never get along with our moms. I've accepted the fact that my mom and i will never be close nor have a perfect relationship. We always end up fighting and it all together isn't a good relationship to have. So some of us probably won't miss our moms that much once they pass.
Seriously? It's the game of who has it worse now? How does your loss invalidate any of OP's unfortunate situation? Sure I feel sorry for you, but that doesn't automatically dismiss any other mom-related problems on earth. Not everyone has a great relationship with their parents, I've seen it for myself, and that's okay. Not everything works out. I'm sorry about your mother, but saying you have it worse doesn't change the situation.
I lost my mom at 12, and I don't wish everyday that she was still with us. Unfortunately not everyone has a good relationship with their mom, I'd much rather have my grandmother back. And neither of our loses relate to the OP's FML, it's not a game of who has it worse.
