Unhappy Why does my mother yell so much - February 20th 2012, 03:13 AM

My mother is always on my case for literally everything. She yells to communicate, and gets angry very quickly. My friends who spend any time in my house ask me how i manage to live with her. She constantly texts her boyfriend and will ignore everything else while she is texting. She talks on the phone for hours at night and disregards everything. She then complains to me that our house is a mess. She'll yell at me about doing my work and then shell ask me why i haven't cleaned. I go to a very intense school so my school work consumes much of my time, I don't have time to clean. She also always says i'm incredibly irresponsible and that I don't deserve to have a car. Which i understand and isn't really a big issue, but i feel like its a very hypocritical statement. She uses my phone as a power play, and she'll disconnect it if i don't follow her very wish. If by chance she sees me sitting with my feet on a chair she'll instantly disconnect my service. If something is ever wrong with her phone she'll instantly fix it, or just be glued to the home phone. I feel like i'm being raised by a small child.
Right now i should be writing my final paper for one of my classes, but because i have been cleaning and doing errands for her all weekend I have been unable to complete or start this ten page paper. A few minutes ago I told her that I may have to change classes because its physically impossible for me to write a paper of the necessary caliber to pass the class. She started screaming about how I am the most irresponsible junior ever and how all I do is hangout with my friends (I've only hung out with my friends once this week, and came home at 10) and my priorities are wrong. This class is one of the most challenging classes offered at my school and i'm already enrolled in five other academic classes. She also keeps telling me that ill never be able to achieve anything and that i need to stop distracting myself. I can't help but be distracted, I believe i have ADD but she refuses to get me tested. I've had countless teachers tell me that they believe i need addreal or vivance to help me concentrate. (Regardless I still get good grades, and i'm in challenging AP classes) Its very hard for me to live with her yelling at me, and demanding unreasonable things of me.

The only thing I can think of is to talk to her in a calm manner. She seems like kind of a mess, but getting angry towards her probably won't do much good either. It is unfair of her to expect you to do all of the housework AND do well in school in my opinion, but keeping the lines of communication open can only help, regardless of how frustrated you are or may get.

I hope things work out for you.

"Ignore the ramblings of the ignorant, and step on or over their crumpled bodies as you make your way to the top of the mountain. Eat upon their flesh for fuel, and, through your determination and will, banish them to obscurity and a life of complacency and self righteousness that is the hell in which they live"

-Richard Safreed
