Some People I Don't Feel Sorry For...

You're a 34-year-old single Mom who lives with her parents. 

All you do is bitch and moan about how they treat you like you're a kid. Maybe they treat you like a kid because you live there RENT FREE; they feed you AND YOUR KID dinner every night because you're "tired" and they pay your car insurance. You have no problem bitching about what she makes for dinner and when, but you refuse to make your kid something on your own.

You get mad when you go grocery shopping and your mom won't bring your groceries to your 'apartment'. "How dare she just leave my stuff on the dining room table". 

You complain that your mom disciplines your son. At least someone tries to tame that brat! You say he is having a problem in school and you're mad that the teacher sent him to a younger grade because she "couldn't deal with him" but you won't go to the school to see why he was moved in with the younger grade. You think he should be evaluated for ADHD but you won't bother because "the copays for specialists are ridiculous". 

You keep trying to lose weight because you think your ex (who broke up with you 14 YEARS AGO) will come running back to you even though he is happily married with kids. You deleted him on FB but somehow see his page and question me about everything you read. I get he's my family but I feel like you're only friends with me to get info about him... You do nothing to change your life and I think you might actually enjoy being miserable. I just don't get why..

I understand being frustrated by that, but in the end try and ignore it. Don't associate with this person unless you absolutely have too, she sounds like someone you won't miss once she's gone.

It sounds like this person may be mentally ill and unable to cope with life - and probably very unhappy about it so she complains and takes it out on others.

That's sad. I know a few people like that.

I get why you don't feel sorry for her.  I wouldn't either but I would sure feel sorry for her child.  Poor kid.

She sounds depressed. She needs to get psychological help.

I'd be extremely embarrassed to be living with my parents at that age. Hell I'd be embarrassed to live with them at MY age.

I and my children live with my dad that I just met two years ago. (he asked me to move in) I cook all the dinner and take care of the house, work for him where he manages as a secretary, and help him care for the animals. He isn't in the best shape and gets chest pain a lot, though he was a lot worse when I met him. He says my kids give him something to live for and he hasn't had that feeling in a long time. I'm 25 years old, and I enjoy living with him and I'm not embarrassed. He missed out on me growing up (my mom never told him about me) and his other kids live pretty far away. I think it's a blessing I have had the chance to meet him, even though his health is deteriorating. I can't even begin to tell you how many times he has fallen and needed help. This is just a reminder that not everyone living with there parent's are self-serving brats. Some are genuinely needed and appreciated. As for the woman in the post, she seriously needs some psychological evaluation.
