Anyone else INDEPENDENT and of legal drinking age have overbearing parents on SRK?
The weird thing about my situation is I’m almost 25 years old and yet the older I get the more ridiculous my mother gets. My parents are separated, but theres no way a man would be so invested in their adult son. Is this the natural thing for mothers to do? I’ve been on my own since I was 17, put myself through college, culinary school…pay my own bills etc. I just recently moved back to my hometown after almost 7 years for a job and she has been acting so crazy. I’ve NEVER been a “momma’s boy” so I dont know what could be the explanation for her actions.
I feel like she treats me like a child. We’re talking, she still calls me at 4 or 5 in the morning to make sure im ok. If I dont answer I wake up to a smorgasbord of text messages of “call me ASAP!!!” Last week she got “upset” because I came over and didnt want to eat what she cooked for dinner rotfl. We ride in the car together and she’s telling me I “charge my phone too much.” I wish I were trolling but I cant make this shit up. I came home one thanksgiving and she went through my clothes like I was a fucking kid. Like what the fuck was she looking for?
Oh, and she likes to bring of things that I did when I was a teenager. And she keeps asking about grandchildren.
I get so frustrated and yell at her. I told her she doesn’t respect me and this woman laughed in my face. It’s so obvious that she doesnt see me as an adult, and I dont know how to change that since I’m 1) an adult. What the hell is going on?
I think her eggs are drying up or something. Is there a medical name for this?
