Let me start by saying that I agree with some others: your mother is suffering from schizophrenia or some similar form of mental illness. She needs some form of treatment. You need to talk to a psychologist/therapist/counselor. You may feel there is some sort of stigma attached to these things and try to deny that help is necessary/useful. But really, what counselors and whatnot do is help you to understand your thought processes and be able to better interact with other people. Think of them as a personal tutor in these subjects. They'll help you with stuff you should have learned in school, but our schools don't cover this sort of thing. You weren't born knowing algebra and I bet you didn't derive the laws of thermodynamics on your own. So why should you expect to know how to deal with a mother who is behaving abnormally and irrationally, without drawing a little help from people who are experts in the subject. Of course, if we're all totally off base and it turns out that your mother's behavior is normal and healthy, a professional will tell you this and help you come to terms with the fact. I'm betting that this will not be the case however.

So, what will happen if you don't do what you can to deal with the problem NOW?

1. If you don't severe ties with your mother, you are going to be dealing with her irrational behavior for the rest of her life. She could develop all sorts of interesting delusions about your friends and acquaintances. At _minimum_, this will be very irritating and embarrassing. It might even cost you important friendships. Or worse.

2. Mental illness can get progressively worse if not treated. The longer you wait, the harder it may be to solve the problem.

3. Your mother has already shown some capacity for violence. Now, most mentally ill people are pretty harmless, but you never know. I bet you'll really be kicking yourself if you don't get help for her and she sticks a knife in someone.

4. If you go along with what she wants, you could end up spending the rest of your life traumatized. Essentially, what this whole porn video thing is doing is putting you in an unwanted sexual situation. Not all that different than Rape/child molestation. Okay, so there is no physical contact, but that won't necessarily matter to your brain, which may make the same connections. I bet you're skeptical. Sure, you might get out okay, and go on to lead a happy, successful life. But basically, you'd be playing emotional Russian roulette with about 3 bullets in the gun.

So, where can you get help?

1. The counselor at your old school. Assuming you trust this person and he/she is competent, and you can get past the marauding gang members. Also keep in mind that the counselor may find themselves legally obligated to contact child protective services.

2. The priest at your church. You said you are nominally catholic. Providing spiritual support is your priest's job. This has the advantage of being free and probably confidential.

3. Get a trusted adult to recommend a psychologist.

4. Look up a psychologist in the phone book. Possibly contact your state regulatory agencies to make sure that your choice is appropriately accredited.

5. Call CPS (or the police). If you are really concerned about getting your mom in trouble, do so anonymously from a pay phone, at least until they convince you that telling them where you live is a good thing. You can also ask them for advice/other resources.

If you have concerns about siccing authorities on mom, keep in mind that these agencies were established with the sole purpose of protecting people (like you). It's not to be expensive nuisances, it's not to paint random sidewalks pink. Whatever action they take, they will at least believe that it is in the best interest of you and your family and the general public. Their actions might occasionally be a mistake and they might not always make you immediately happy, but in general, they will be trying to help you.

Well said middic. I commend you for your mature and rational thoughts on the situation. There's your answer kirri: it's all in middic's post, every bit you need. *Applauds middic*

When I first read this topic, I was pissing myself laughing, it was so ****ing funny. It was weird but not really all that bad, I just thought your mom was trying to help you, just didn't really know the right way to go about it... And she had a weird sense of humour.

However, when you mentioned the incidents where she cut sick smashing stuff etc., it has led me to believe your mom has some SERIOUS issues, and if you don't get out of the house, you will, as has been mentioned by someone (sorry), that you'll be playing emotional Russian Roulette.

I'm not saying you have to totally sever the link with your mom forever, but it would be best to do that until she is better. Please, do this, or else I don't know what will happen, and I'm actually quite concerned...

Good luck.

Quite frankly, the money for prostitutes and free porn more than makes up for her being crazy and stuff.

cmon people, the cat fingering topic BLOWS THIS AWAY! This kind of behavior in moms is getting less and less rare these days. she's just being overprotective and wants you to be straight and to have kids(no offense). nit-picky violence like that is also getting more common in moms.

but, on the other hand, a guy who fingers his friend's constipated cat and doesn't bother to wash his hands before he eats is a rare find....

kirri, all I have to say is...

Good luck.

Even if she is the lady dancing naked on your front lawn, or whatever, hitting you and crap like that is just messed up.

Next time she hits you, SMACK THAT ***** BACK! You shouldn't have to put up with that! Dont listen to people telling you to hire a hitman, of course, but you havent told us WHAT you have done so far.

Just tell us what you have done so far.

My advice is just to get her help!
And have you talked to your dad, cause from the sound of it your mother probably isn't going to listen, (At least not without adding a "Whens my grand child coming?")

Also she could have had a troubled childhood, although from what I have heard it would have to be a VERY, VERY, VERY ****ed up childhood.

Just keep her away from typewriters til' she has a phychiatrist.

w00t happened to kirri? He isn't responding anymore.

You don't think he' couldn't be...)

Do you think...his mom tied him up in the basement? Stick needles through his eyelids to have him open to watch porn videos? And have his mom give lessons to him?

At first this topic was funny, but now it is serious. You must get your mom some help. It won't get better if you don't do anything. She will wind up hurting someone badly, be it you, herself, or someone else. If yoou truly love her you'll get her some help. Medic(sp?) said it best.

Good luck.
