Is it okay that my mom acts like this?
Is it okay that my mom tells me I overreact too much? She’s been on and off drinking since I was born. 4 years ago she was drunk and she drank bleach and nearly died right in front of me. She’s been sober for a few months now but even then she has threatened to kick me out of the house for not cleaning my room and then acted like it was a joke. She openly admits to guilt tripping and jokes that my sisters and I are the reason she drinks. My dad is also an alcoholic but she either defends his actions or says I don’t have a reason to be upset. She yells at me whenever I cry. She tells me my life could be worse and I want my life to be miserable just so I can complain about it. But lately I’ve been talking to friends and councelors and it doesn’t seem normal for them. It doesn’t feel right either, I have nightmares often and lose a lot of sleep, but I don’t know if I’m overreacting. I might just be too sensitive, and she still tells me she loves me, but nothing she does anymore feels right. My sisters don’t seem to feel as affected as me though. Do I really have any right to be upset at all?
