So my mother was diagnosed with MS a few years ago, which causes lesions on the brain. Also, when she decided I was bipolar back when I was in the prime of adolescense, I believe she should've checked herself into treatment too.
This morning she is refusing to drive me to work, granted, I woke up 15 minutes before having to be in, but it could've saved time and much yelling if she'd mentioned this to me last night so I could have had a ride in place. So I had to scramble to call my (still new) job, and tell them I wouldn't be able to make it this morning and would hopefully be able to make it this afternoon. Luckily I work with a friend of mine who was able to go in for me this morning. But now no one is available to pick me up and drive me in this afternoon OR pick me up this evening. My mother wants me to pay rent each week to live in the house I grew up in, and that's all fine and well but if I can't make it to work I CAN'T PAY YOU RENT.
Reasoning is not an option with my mother, if she's got it stuck in her head, she's not budging. Also, she called me a liar because I told her all the dishes I'd used were put directly into the dishwasher. And lo and behold, there was a measuring cup I'd used in the sink, so she started calling me a liar.
I'll never win.
