Question Rant about my mother - June 8th 2017, 07:53 PM

Sometimes I really cannot understand my mother.

Just now we went out to buy sandwiches. I got mine, then put it on the table to eat when I got home. When I returned to the table to eat, the sandwich was gone, so I asked mother what happened to it. Turns out that she threw it away.

When I asked why, she began screaming at me that it was my fault for not eating it fast enough, and that she is never going to buy me another sandwich ever again. That I wasted money for asking for one in the first place.

I really did not know what to respond to this so I just sat down and stayed quiet. But her behavior truly confuses me, I do not see how this incident was my fault.

There also is the fact that this is not an isolated incident. She tends to blame me for many things, or simply act paranoid. For example, when I asked her about something she had in a drawer she began telling me to shut up because "Neighbors always set up recording devices inside other's homes to listen to what we say so they can rob us, so be quiet!"

There also are the times where she accuses me of being possessed by the devil whenever I disagree with her on a topic. It is no use trying to reason with her, because she will take it as an offense and begin to yell at me.

Figured I may as well rant a bit here, as this gets really tiring after a while and I felt I had to let some of it out...

Hey, I can definitely relate to not being really able to understand your mother, as well as other things mentioned. it can be pretty tough to have a mom who just switches on and off in a split second. i ain't much, but i'm always here to talk if you need me.

Hopefully writing your feelings out was helpful. Sometimes just doing that can do a lot of good.

You said there's no use trying to reason with your mother because that could make things worse; is there anyone you can talk to about this so you're not alone? Maybe a friend, another family member, or a counselor? It may help to have someone there for you when you're struggling with your mom.

In the meantime it could also help for you to express your feelings in other ways, such as through posting on here, keeping a journal, blogging, or expressing yourself through other means such as poetry or art for instance.
