    • I have a friend whom I’ve known for over 30 years, she and I used to be neighbors when I lived next door to her moms home which she still resides there. Well her mother is so greedy and just plain ole selfish. My girlfriend and I have a sister type relationship and we share a lot of personal stuff with each other, and she has been sharing with me for a while just how selfish her mother has gotten with her over the past few years. Now my girlfriend was out living on her own with her live-in boyfriend but later found he was using drugs so she went back home to help out her sick stricken mother which she never left for reasons I’m not sure of, but here it is after many years of remaining there she herself has been stricken with many illness‘es where she is now on disability and unable to work.

      Her mother is so full of herself and though she is older and somewhat stricken with some health issues she is still able to get around quite well for herself and drives and the whole nine, but she continues to keep her daughter my friend at her mercy. Every 1st or 3rd of the month the disability checks go out and her mother finds every excuse in the book to get my girl friend to give up most of her money for something outside of what it is intended for and that is to take care of her and her own personal needs.

      I have told her she can get out with the money she receives, the amount she gets I’m not too sure of but I know she gets a pretty penny, and she needs to go! I also know no one can do to you what you allow, but she keeps giving in to her mother’s games. She is a very vendictive old woman and has tried to use me at one time at her disposal as she does the crack-heads in the neighborhood but I told her “I respect you and all” but, you will not treat me like those who otherwise need you and your $2.00 for services render for a whole day of work lol, she got mad at me and didn’t speak to me for a while, but it was fine with me and this is how she plays her own daughter. It is such a shame how people will use another for their own selfish gain.

      My girlfriend has a good heart and is a very sweet person and even her sorry sister who is older treats her the very same way as their mother. So now she has let her health get so bad and it’s got the best of her that she is now a victim in her own mother’s house.

    • Your friend sounds like she is in a bad situation.  Am I reading this right...your girlfriend gets the disability checks?  If so...she needs either move out...or stand up to her mother and say this money is going for my care and needs...and nothing else.  And if the  mother uses the excuse well you live in my house so you owe me...well...then that’s when I would be looking for somewhere else to go.  What mother would do that to their own child?

    • heart I’ll never ever understand why people are so mean. I guess there is no understanding the evil in this world. Sigh.
      I’ll add your friend to my thoughts.
      Hugs

    • @Mary, my sentiments exactly. i have told her time and time again that with all her health issues she can get transportation at her doorstep, she doesn’t need her mother or anyone else to come and drive her around and she can get housing at a low cost to her but some people love pain so if she likes it i love it I know that’s her mother but just because its mother doesn’t mean she’s right. She just likes being in that old run down neighborhood that she was raised up in and act like she is so afraid to cross East 8 mile road to a better living environment, but to each their own.

    • Boy, her mother sounds wicked and her sister too...your friend needs an intervention to let her know she is important and doesn’t need to take that crap.

    • @Marya and Vikki, I know she does need help, but she is such a softie this is why people mistreat her because she herself allows it, I never did like her sister who is an ex-crack head and she still has that mentality of using people to get what she wants she uses her sister terribly bad, but hey what can i say this is her family and if she allows them to treat her this way who am I to try and cut the cord.tongue out
