Our latest story is a sad one. This tragic tale has been weighing on our poster’s mind for some time. She’s an 18-year-old woman, and she needed to talk about it.
A Rocky Relationship
She has always loved her mother, despite their rocky relationship.
Growing up without a father, her mother had to raise her and her two brothers alone.
But even as a child, she knew her mother didn’t want her.
Her mother has told her on several occasions that she was unplanned, and she sometimes wishes she’d aborted her.
Although she claimed she didn’t mean it, the words still stung.
A Mental Struggle
As her mother grew older, she struggled with mental health and anger issues. She was in and out of treatment facilities and mental hospitals.
But through it all, her daughter had always idolized her mother.
That is, until a few days ago.
Stepdad’s Sister Moves In
Her relationship with her mother had been crumbling for some time.
It all started when her stepdad’s sister moved into their house.
Alcohol & Addiction Issues
The sister was an alcoholic who had lost her house and kids to her addiction.
The daughter didn’t get along with her at all and couldn’t stand the influence she had over her mother’s drinking.
One night, around 10 pm, the daughter was playing a video game in her room when she went to the kitchen for water.
There, she noticed multiple empty beer bottles on the table.
She asked her mom how much she had to drink, and she answered, “Six.”
The daughter could tell that her mother was drunk, and she stormed back into her room, not wanting to see her like that.
No Way She Can Drive
Her stepdad usually got off work at 11 pm, and his wife would drive to pick him up.
But there was no way she was going to let her mother drive in her current state.
When she wobbled to grab her car keys, her daughter told her to sit down and that she would go pick him up instead.
She Did Not Expect This
That’s when things took a turn for the worse.
She doesn’t remember what happened exactly, but the next thing she knew, she was on the floor with blood dripping from her nose.
Her mother had punched her and called her a few choice words before leaving the house.
Getting Away Fast
Despite the physical abuse, the daughter knew she couldn’t let her mother drive while this drunk.
So she stood up, snatched the keys from her hand, and grabbed her own keys from her room.
She ran to her car and pulled out of the driveway as fast as she could.
Picking Up Stepdad
When she picked up her stepdad, he was visibly confused and asked why she was picking him up.
She told him the truth – that her mother had punched her in the face and that she was incredibly drunk.
Her stepdad was angry that his sister had influenced her to drink again and apologized for what had happened.
Thrown Out In the Yard
As they pulled into the driveway, they saw a pile of stuff in the front yard. The daughter had a feeling that it was her stuff sitting on the muddy grass.
She had been planning to move out of the house in a few months, as she almost had enough money for a half year’s rent, and she was already helping her mother with the bills.
Trashing the House
She walked inside with her stepdad and went into her room to find her mother absolutely trashing everything.
Her room was a mess. Her mother started yelling at her to get out, and lunged at her again!
She pushed her mother to the floor and began packing up her clothes.
She had to take a break to shove her mother away from her every so often. Her stepdad was doing a really lousy job of holding her mother back.
She started grabbing trash bags and filling them up with her stuff.
Leaving In a Hurry
She packed them all in her car and went back inside to grab her envelope that had almost $3,000 in it.
It was the money she was holding from her dad’s will to live on her own.
The Money Is Missing
Her mother had been holding it in her medicine safe, but when she went to get it, it was gone!
She asked her mom where her money was, but she told her daughter that she’d spent it paying back her debt!
That’s when she lost it – it had all gotten too much for her. She punched the big mirror in the living room and started screaming at her mother.
She had stolen her daughter’s money and the last piece of her dad she had left since her mother had pawned everything else!
The Police Are Called
The neighbor ended up calling the police due to the noise, and the young woman ended up pressing charges against her mother for theft and assault!
This incident was the last straw – she’s lost all respect for her mom and every ounce of love she had left for her.
Pressure to Drop the Charges
She ended up in the hospital overnight for her nose, but they discharged her this morning.
Since then, her phone has been blowing up from her entire family, telling her to drop the charges!
A Safe Haven at a Friend’s House
But she’s going to stand firm and won’t be dropping them.
Today she finished packing her car with a police escort and drove to her best friend’s house.
She’s staying there until she can get herself back on her feet mentally and physically.
And she’s decided to cut all contact with her family, including her mother.
What do you think about this girl’s tale? Over the years, her mom has treated her terribly, so it’s no surprise that she would finally snap. Should she drop the charges? Leave a comment!
