Does anyone else have a bad relationship with their mother? My parents have helped me so much with my DD, but it still doesn't change the fact that I can't stand my mother and she can't stand me.

I didn't have the greatest relationship with my mother either. She passed away this past October.

My mother and I are very close. My MIL and I are a different story, and its a work in progress...

I hope you find some peace with your mom. Life is too short.  Just my two cents...

Good luck!

 I have always had a horrible relationship with my mother. She does nothing but lie to me and steal from me. No joke, it's ridiculous

Yeah I don't have a great relationship with mine either.  I basically tolerate her.  That may sound mean but it's true.  Had she treated me differently growing up things would probably be different now.

I have an unhealthy relationship with my mom. She was super controlling.

I have always had a great relationship with my mother but I have a Girlfriend who has a bad one with her.  Some people should never be parents.

my relationship with my mom isn't good or bad it just is.  i don't confide in her and i don't go to her for advice.  we talk but it's never anything life changing.  

i very much dis-like my mil and she thinks we're best friends.  i tolerate her.

Mine too! Since she's helping me, she uses that to still control me. It's getting rediculous. She sends me about 30 emails a day and demands that I reply to all of them, if my daughter gets hurt (a scrape on the knee) she goes crazy, if I don't answer or return her phone calls she gets upset. I don't understand how she has so much energy to control my life, but then she complains she's exhausted.

I don't like my mother at all ... she wasn't much of a role model and definitely helped f*ck up my life...
