My mom hasn't seen me in a week. She gave me a big hug and then went to her boyfriend's for the weekend. She came back today and she gave me another hug. I was talking with her about her weekend, but then her boyfriend called her and she chose to answer that instead of continuing our conversation, even though he calls her every day and she goes there every weekend. She denies putting men in front of me, but then she creates yet another example of it. I am so sick of this, she's been doing it since I my parents divorced when I was 4. I resent her to the point where there's pretty much no going back to me seeing her how I did when I was 5, my mom. It's very unfortunate, but I've tried just about everything. All I can do now is move on and move out. This has caused me mental anguish beyond my capacity of understanding.

Back story: she's been seeing this guy for a few months now and ever since she got with him, everything else has been pushed aside. She's been drinking with him every weekend (way more than she has in decades but had quit until now), and has been participating in risky activities such as him driving while under the influence. There's way more to this story if you need further examples.

    I would try not to take it so hard. She wants to be happy. I was helping my mom with a situation and I was saying that she has good tastes. A friend was misreading a situation putting my mom in a situation verbally. Welcome to talk to me about the details. I didn't like how my mom's supposed friend was treating momma. I'm not even supposed to be having fights with my own MoMA. This person we call a friend is staying with my parents. My mom and I both agree she's on thin ice for how she has been treating my mom.
