Too many examples to list here. But she's a narcissist, self centred, rude fucking person and I feel so much better writing it down here.

Yep! I'd love to go LC (or ideally NC) but as my only proper family my DC would miss you

WooYa Mon 10-Jun-19 21:16:25

Or her hmm

mabelmylove Mon 10-Jun-19 21:16:43

Nope

My mum is wonderful. My MIL however is an absolute cow, have had no contact with her for seven years now and it has been heavenly!

Gottalovesummer Mon 10-Jun-19 21:19:39

wooyayes that's the dilemma isn't it?

TheoriginalLEM Mon 10-Jun-19 21:21:33

Mine , complete narcissist

CarolDanvers Mon 10-Jun-19 21:23:36

Yes mine too and my Dad. A right pair of arseholes in fact.

Gottalovesummer Mon 10-Jun-19 21:24:54

I am really envious of friends who hard mum's they can talk to and confide in and get advice from.

Mine is just horrible to me.

stephstrops Mon 10-Jun-19 21:25:35

Mine. Hate the woman with every ounce of me. I’ll never forgive her for things that she has done

WickedGoodDoge Mon 10-Jun-19 21:33:49

Mine was awful. I moved to Scotland from the US and she used to constantly send me the most vile emails. Then when her health deteriorated she tried to tell me that I needed to move back home to take care of her but DH and DC were most definitely not invited. hmm

Gluetap Mon 10-Jun-19 21:37:07

Mine is. Haven’t seen/spoken to her or my father for nearly 5 years. It’s been hard but best decision I’ve made.

pepperpot99 Mon 10-Jun-19 21:37:34

What a lovely thread.

Gottalovesummer Mon 10-Jun-19 21:43:29

pepperpot you know, you're probably one of the lucky ones who's got a lovely supportive mother.

We don't.

So, save your sarcasm thank you.

Dieu Mon 10-Jun-19 21:45:44

Och, you poor things. My mum isn't perfect, but I can't imagine having a mother so horrible that you hate her. It's very sad. For you lot, I mean thanksgin

hellenbackagen Mon 10-Jun-19 21:48:04

Yup. Been nc for 17 years. Peace reigns supreme.

SunshineCake Mon 10-Jun-19 21:53:50

No grandma is better than one who treats your mum like shit

xsquared Mon 10-Jun-19 21:59:07

I can empathise with posters here as my mother was a relentless bully to me before she and my df divorced. She left the family home when I was in my teens and I didn't miss her. She did however, getback in touch 4 years after she left, things were different - it's not been a happy reunion but I don't hold a grudge against her anymore.

Pepperpot, you're lucky to have a good relationship with your mother.

xsquared Mon 10-Jun-19 22:00:33

Anyway OP, I hope you manage to find some way round this.

Gottalovesummer Mon 10-Jun-19 22:04:13

ssquared thank you for your kind post.

Sadly, I think not.

Mw mother has been vile to me for years and I think I've finally had enough of her.

ssd Mon 10-Jun-19 22:08:11

Yes pepperpot you can do one

I had a lovely mum but I have an older sister exactly like all of your mothers

itstrue Mon 10-Jun-19 22:08:24

Mine is a bully and doesn't everything she can to put me down. I'm NC now but it's sad, hard and embarrassing having a mother who is like that

sweetkitty Mon 10-Jun-19 22:12:25

OP - this always happens on MN you could say my mother stabbed me with a kitchen knife and done poster will say “well at least you’ve got a mother”

No one knows what anyone else has gone through and shouldn’t really comment, it’s really hard when all around you see mums doing everything for their children and you don’t have that in your life, in fact your mother actually did things to hurt you and to prevent it you’ve had to go NC. When your DC ask what a Gran is? That fucking hurts. So rant away some of us know what it feels like.

atomicnotsoblonde Mon 10-Jun-19 22:12:30

Oh god yes. Mine is an attention seeking nightmare, who will manipulate anything or anyone to get what she wants. I minimise contact as much as I can but it's hard. The kids love her and want to see her. Although my eldest is starting to see it now. It's just exhausting dealing with her. I could never tell her anything about my life without it being used against me in one way or another.

tolerable Mon 10-Jun-19 22:12:50
