I really don't know what to do right now. First of all, let me say that I really do love my mom. She takes care of me when I'm sick, gives me rides, and does love me. She has been supportive of me in school, but that seems to be about it. But I am reallly sick of her right now. She is constantly negative. She calls everyone idiots and everything stupid. I know why she does this, her childhood was very shitty and she never was really helped. She has learning disabilities and a speaking problem, which I have somewhat inherited. She is very pessimistic about everyone. If I ever say something about how one of my friends or someone else is trying toa chieve this certain goal, she sort of treats it like they won't ever make it. I know this is because her parents never really gave her any kind of support and were always down on her. But can't she realize that things are different in the real world? Whjenever I say I'm going to try something or try reaching a goal, she always has a very negative attitude about it. Now, usually I keep my anger bottled up inside when I'm talking to her, but today was different. Usually, I end up blowing up on my friends for petty little things, bbecause I have no other way to release anger. But today, I just snapped. She called my dad and I "idiots" again for making a tiny little mistake about putting away some food. She then muttered how she should just "Leave, and move on." Then I simply just yelled at her that she should "LEAVE, if that's how you really feel!" Everyone got silent, but I knew I had hurt her. I think she was crying later. The thing is, I want to make amends with her, but I really don't know how to bring this topic up with her. First, I want to fix the damage that has been done. There's no way I can live in this house with here being so upset with me. I have brought her negativity up before, but she just gets all depressed and starts crying and yelling at me. Then I feel guilt, say I'm sorry, and we go on. But I know I need to do something about this. Her negativity is transfering into my life because I'm around her so much that a lot of times my instant reactions to things are negative because I've been conditioned to think like that. BTW, I'm 16, so getting out of the house is not an option for another 2 years.
