What's your mum like?

What's your mum like?
 
Following on from the other thread about Dads.
 
Mine is a woman of massive contradictions, capable of immense with and warmth, she has spent most her adult life consumed by anger and resentment, mainly focussed on my absent father (he's a **** so its a blessing), but also on her parents.
 
Everyone elses problems are less than hers, and as a result she hasnt a friend in the world , beside one old one she sees every few weeks.
 
As children, we were one minute smothered in hugs and kisses, and the next being kicked and bashed with pans, bats you name it. That was immenseley confusing and left me with issues that I had eventually to deal with.
 
After many years of being quite distant we are to some extent reconciled, but that makes me sad in a way, because her life is so empty, I am now her pride and joy. Truly a wasted life, and someone who allowed resentment to poison her.
 
She's now 62 and suffering severe complications from diabetes, rather sad really.
 
But, she's my mum, you always love your mum right?

    Never ever picked me up, or cuddled or kissed me.  Ever.

    It's a wonder I turned out so optimistic and balanced as I have.

    different kettle of fish....

    growing up:

    a down right bitch... My sister moved out one day to escape her and the sad thing is, my dad helped her gut the bedroom leaving an empty shell of a room for my mum to cry in.

    Controlling, manipulative...the works.

    Present:
    Butter wouldnt melt in her mouth and she wonders why she has trouble having me and my sister round to visit her because she was of course in her mind 'the best mother ever'.

    parents are now divorced, dad financially raped through the courts but she lives in a country cottage in the new forest, drives a Lexus and goes on holiday 3-4 times a year.

    I'm waiting for the karma people talk about as sad as it sounds.

    Fantastic woman, very hard worker, very motivated and goal orientated but family is the No.1 priority in life and come before all else.
    Always very loving and caring, not afraid to give a swift kick up the ass when needed either tho.
    Doesn't take sh*t from anybody, somehow manages to put the fear of God into anyone who is acting unreasonably, has stood up for me on several occassions over the years because she knew I wasn't a scut.
    If she thought I was being a scut, she would be the first to hammer me.

    Bit of power/control freak, touch of OCD and also worries far too much - all 3 of which I have inherited from her, to some extent.

    Wouldn't change her for the world.

    My mum is unusual inasmuch as her knees and elbows bend the opposite way to other humans; she's covered in hair, and she throws her breasts over her shoulders when she runs.

    ^^  Mine too.

    She's only slept with one man - my Dad.  She'd do anything for anyone.  An extremely caring, gentle, loving woman, - - don't make many like that anymore :)

    A control freak, suspicious, jealous, petty, childish, stresses over nothing, still screwed up and angry about being adopted, pushes people away. I was terrified of her when I was little and found her selfish and challenging as an teenager. Few years went by when we did not have contact at all when I left home. High blood pressure, diabetic nerve damage, other health problems, zonked out on painkillers now, has no life at all. I love her because she's my Mum, but she's been hard work.

    Really kind and friendly, a bit whacky, always smiling and laughing and joking also very easy going. Kind of person that says hello and smiles past every person she passes say when walking the dogs.

    Constantly making me give clothes to charity and other stuff, I'd have a bike for my birthday etc and 2 years down the line when i need it for what ever reason I'd found out she'd give it away to a not so well off family, same with mega-drive, playstation you name it.

    She flaps a bit, constantly asking have I done so and so or do I want so and so, when usually i just don't care. Plus she worries too much.

    amazing mom really. A very good cook also. She will out live my dad, sort of worried she will give inheritence to RSPCA or dogs home, tbh i wouldn't mind, would be a nice thing to do.

    Tough really tough,even know as nice as she is and she would help anyone,she takes no sh1t ,people always same the same she is dead nice but you really wouldnt  wanna cross her

    My father worked full time in a well paid job in mining but kept all his money (and some other womens money ,he would take their wages and give them pocket money)To fund his constant flow of new bikes,to such a degree the local bike shop owner ,who treated him like a son,would give him such good deals he got a new bike every 3-4 months,longest he ever kept one was 6months

    This meant all my mums wages ran the house which was a bit of stretch,she didnt drive art the time so it was 3 buses to shop,2 buses to work(each way for both)

    with his abuse she was for the most either very angry or very upset,and drank a lot at the weekends id put her to bed or get a pillow and covers and make her comfy on the sofa and sort around the place best i was able

    She has remarried very happy and a new women for the last 25yrs,she has always given me moral support and a home when i hit bad times

    we are distant to a degree but we get along but im very open on here as youll have gathered but in reality theres few people id open up to at all,i guess youd say i was very friendly and open toward everyone but if you asked people what they knew of me they wouldnt know a lot

    so in our own way we get along well if not a little cool to others,very strong women who i respect for keeping her (And i guess my life)together against the odds

    we have had the debt collecters at the door ,social workers the lot but we got thru it all ok
    mums are ace

    Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    Sorry my response isn't much better than the dad one mate.
    Mine is an alcholic, I went to live with my grand parents when I was about 3.
    Even though they had 9 of their own kids it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

    Boring, in contrast to some of the mum's on here!

    She is very tolerant - never told me not to do anything when I was younger.
    Well, not let me become a tearaway but those stupid things you do when you're younger such as do stupid things for unworthy girls, etc. she never told me she disapproved although I knew she did.

    Also, I'm a bit of a callous b'tard, and don't speak to some members of my family. She disapproves but tries to stay neutral, although we argue about it occasionally.

    She's quite rational and never loses her temper, although I remember she used to when I was younger. But she tended to just throw things and then regret it later!

    My mother is labelled 'me mam' in my phonebook.

    Nearly started this thread myself yesterday- but opted out of a reply in both so seemed pointless!   Good threads though.

    Unaffiliated.

    As with my dad, she is awesome. A very kind hearted women, who would do anything. Amazing cook as well.

    I say again, I am very lucky.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die

    She does yes, so why are you so angry normally?
