Is it normal to not care when my mom cries?
For context, my mom is mentally ill (bipolar/bpd/manic depression) and tends to cry a lot and have temper tantrums when things don’t go her way. She’s used to getting everything she wants in life because she has huge fake titties and men throw money at her. She’s a welfare bum and watches TV from the moment she wakes up until she goes to bed, only intercepted by bathroom breaks and feeding the cats. This is where the crying comes in. 100% of her stress in life is caused by these cats. All she has to do is feed them and scoop their litter, but according to her this is the most difficult task that has ever existed and she’s burdened with it everyday. When the cats come meowing at her in the morning she screams at them and has a crap attack. She did that this morning and started yelling at the top of her lungs how she hates everything and I’m using her (I’m 17) because I irregularly feed the cats so I start yelling too, stating that she’s acting like a child and perhaps this is why she lost her job at Tim Hortons 12 years ago. She goes off on a tangent about how she acts like this because nobody loves her and whatnot and now she’s crying again. I can’t even begin to describe how childish my mother is. I don’t think she ever matured past 13, which is when she got blacklisted from every school in the city. Grandma tried to fight for her rights to education but she didn’t wanna go to school and this was the 80s and the schools could do whatever they wanted.
TLDR: Mom is mentally ill and very childish and cries a lot. She has temper tantrums like a toddler which usually end in her crying and I just don’t care anymore.
