Living up to unreasonable standards?

Nakona, you are between a rock and a hard place, aren't you? It would be great if you could get out of there, but only you know your situation and your energy level. I'm sure you'll make the best decision.

Is there any chance you could sit down with your mother and talk some of these things out? Let her know what is and isn't acceptable to you, and the way you expect to be treated with respect? (I can just imagine how some mothers would explode at something like that; I don't know yours.)

If she loves you, and you love her, then there is a basis for trying to create a more positive atmosphere between you. Maybe you can "train" her by letting her know (patiently and gently) when she's behaving in a way you don't like, and thanking her when she behaves better.

I just really hope you can find a way to make the best of this situation, if you're stuck there! Is therapy an option, with you & your mom, even one or two sessions before the surgery? Just thinking....

Best of luck!
