  • My Mom is Extremely Authoritarian

    Every time I get extremely frustrated, I end up yelling for a few seconds because I have nothing else to do. I would punch my bed or something but I broke my knuckle on my door months ago and it is all funky now. This is sort of off topic, but my mother also believes I am a hypochondriac even though I rarely complain about my health. Whenever I have health issues, I talk about them and she dismisses them because she thinks I am just a typical lying teen, like she was. Anyways, I am having some serious problems holding my words back when she barges into my room and threatens to hit me and says "I don't care how big you are, I ain't scared to say ******** to your face. If I hit you, you shouldn't hit back because I am your MOTHER." She doesn't say it exactly like this, but this is basically the tl;dr version of it. I really want to punch her back or show her just how much it pisses me off when she beats on me and thinks it's unreasonable for me to want to hit her back. She is self righteous who thinks she has the final say or doing on EVERYTHING and thinks she knows it all, just because she is the mom.

    Thanks for reading, I really would like some advice so I don't become a "crazy" person who lost it and beat their family and have the news twist the story to make me look bad. - Basically call me a psychopathic freak who can't tell right from wrong.
