I am being treated like complete shit and I am sick of it. I live with my mom, and I'm 22 years old, have no other family to go to, friends are a joke, and stupid welfaare will not support me enough to get a place on my own, not even a room in a boarding house, because I'm living with family. I am trying to save up enough money so that I can actually leave, because I am sick of being told each day how I am nothing but a burden. It's like my "payment" for living with her is constantly being verbally abused. She drinks, and rarely apologoizes when she tells me I'm nothing but a burden, I bring nothing but misery to her life, etc. I have been keeping a journal dating the days which she says something like that to me and writing whether she apologizes or not. I would not record if she just got mad at me, but if she said things like I am a burden, then I would. I put the journal in a drawer in my room where I have other things, like coupons and things that she would not like. I did not think she would go looking through my drawer but she has been. She found the journal one day while I was out of the house, and then confronted me about it, and when I said what she should apologize for she said she doesn't need to apologize for any of it since she has every right to say that! If I was upset with someone and said that they were nothing but a burden and only brought misery to my life, I would apologize, but maybe that's just me. Maybe it's normal to not apologize for saying those things, I don't kow.
