Today, my mom got drunk and started crying, ranting about all the things she could have done in life if I hadn't been born. FML

Just tell her Happy mothers day and walk away.

She sounds extremely supportive and loving. But seriously OP if she wasn't ready to have you, and did, she has nobody but herself to blame. You didn't ruin her life, if she wasn't vacuous and self centered she would realize that she's the one who did that.

Aww I'm sorry OP sometimes being drunk brings out hidden feelings but I think she's grateful to have you and if it helps I'm happy you were born!

This happens to me everyday. I know the feeling.

It seems we may have yet another attention whore on FML

#13: It's not attention-whoring. The man is making an empathetic statement. They are two completely different things.

Your mum gets drunk everyday? I think she may have a problem..

@27, where did everyday come from?

read #2's post you idiot

30 - "This happens to me everyday." "happens to me everyday." "everyday."

Learn to read.

Yes she has a problem

FWIW, it should be 'every day', though; 'everyday' is an adjective, so it could be used in a sentence such as 'This is an everyday occurrence for me.'

81 - Great fucking story.

It didn't say she blamed him, she just ranted about having him, and he was just there at the moment.

^ basically, blaming his existence and birth for getting in the way of everything she never got to do = blaming him.

OP can count herself lucky. My mom does that while sober.

Don't you just love it when mother go crazy right before mothers day?

Best to remove yourself from the scene. Better to wait out the ravings.

That sucks, raising a child is very rewarding and can make long lasting memories. I'm sorry OP

CAN be very rewarding, for people who WANT to be parents.

People who don't want to be parents and end up with kids still shouldn't blame them for their own mistakes.

theres always options for people who dont want kids! Like adoption that way people who actually want kids, but cant have them would be able to have a chance of having a family.

#41. I was given up for adopting as an infant. This is a good choice for people who are ready for parenthood. I am EXTREMELY grateful for my birth moms decision. I love my adopted family. The only family I have ever know. Anyone who down voted this suggestion needs to think again. I had a better life this way and am thankful to God that I wasn't aborted or kept in a place that I was unwanted.

*are not ready for parenthood* sorry for the typo

You're right about not blaming your kids for your problems, 35, but I'm still not sure why 31's getting thumbed down. It's true that kids are not rewarding or "blessings", in common FML parlance, for everyone, and while this may not be where 6 was going with his comment, the attitude that children are ALWAYS rewarding and people will see that as soon as they have their own, even if they have serious doubts, probably contributed to OP's mom's poor decision to have a kid she didn't want in the first place.

Don't make her breakfast in bed on Sunday.

Guess she won't get the "Thank you for being a great Mom" card and roses this year, for Mother's Day.

I feel that too. Just don't talk to get all weekend, drop a Mother's Day card off, and when she asks why your ignoring her, hit her with how you felt to what she said.
