I have to admit, my mother was exactly like this in so many ways. I left home so many times to get away from it, and it was always someone else's fault. I grew up wondering why her friends got less and less each year. Everything was controlled, right down to my Internet banking. No money was my money, it was all for the house. It took me years to learn budgeting skills because of her. She's been gone for 10 years, and I do admit that I miss her every day, because it wasn't always like that, sometimes she could be really nice, and that's the memories I prefer to remember


My mother was like this, that's why l left home at 15 and didn't go back for over 10yrs until she faked a heart attack.
