Wow, my Mom is really starting to get on my nerves... Will try not to make it a rant topic and just let out my feelings

I call home the other day, it's been a long day, went to bed late and had to get up early so of course I'm tired. My Mom picks up and I talk to her (Keep in mind once more, I'm tired so my voice isn't exactly cheery and I told her that I was tired), well, during mid-conversation, she asks, "Are you depressed? You sound like it." At this point I'm about explode because she always does when I just told her that I was tired. Well, apparently that wasn't good enough for her and she starts crying and says I'm depressed.

Now, at this point, my anger is building up (One, because nothing makes me madder than someone else telling me how I feel, what I like and don't like etc. and two, she's crying for no reason). Fortunately, I'm good at holding my anger so I don't make the situation worse. I ask to talk to my Dad because I'm getting tired of this. I ask him what's wrong with her and tells me he has no idea (She's getting on his nerves too). I love my Mom but she's making it hard to put up with her when she ignores everything I say and makes up her own facts (I've talked to her about it but she always "forgets").

Anyway, I'm not trying to make it look like I'm ranting. I just needed to get this off my chest and I would like to hear your input as well.

moms are moms ... they worry over a lot of things that we would never think twice about .... but you can never deny that they want only the best for ya ... take it easy with her, you will only have one mom. maybe she needs to see adoctor for her own depression ...i am certainly no doctor, but it almost sounds like she is projecting her issues onto someone else, maybe she cant deal with her own, or doesnt realize it ?

Dude Marauder, that was uncalled for. I posted this thread so I can calm down and let loose some of this frustration.

Forgive me. I'll just call my Mom and vent my frustrations on her...

That's something a whiny kid would do.

if it aggravates you when you call her, then why do you call her when you are already having a rough day. Can't you just find a friend or something to talk to/

I like to talk about it. That's how I deal with it. Unfortunately, a few people want to turn it into joke fest. I guess I shouldn't have posted this here. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Do I understand that you're in Basic or on active duty?

If so, yeah she's worried sick about you. If, when you call, you sound down she's going to panic. She needs afirmation that everything is going well, you're still happy with your choice and excited about your future.

Effectively, she's lost control of her world because at any time you may be in danger and she can't help you, she's feeling helpless. It's something no parent likes, although I find some parents are able to let go and trust their kids faster. I know when I was in Bosnia my folks were panicked. My nephew, Airbourne, is presently in Iraq and I find I worry if I don't hear from him for a while. (I always answer my phone so I'm his point of contact.) My thoughts are to reassure her a little that everything is moving according to your plan.

As a side note, we do like to play a little and sometimes we, unintentionally step on a raw nerve. When we do it is not done to hurt feelings but intended to get you to chuckle. I don't think offense was meant, but I may be wrong.

Keep open communication between you two, that could solve a lot of problems.

You sound like a towel.

On-topic, people without parent-issues are weird. You, on the other hand, are normal. You're gonna have to get used to over-the-phone parenting though.... With my mom, whatever I'm like on the phone is, in her mind, "how I've been since the last time I called." We've finally got to the point now where me sounding different doesn't make her freak out, but that took all of college and half of pilot training -- I mean, it's an adjustment for your folks, you not being around for them to stress about face-to-face. So let 'em adjust. That's my $.02

Your mom definitely has something on her mind. Talk to her, show affection to her. Women always try and cover there feelings by ignoring them.

my mom was like that when I moved out. It took awhile to adjust but she is better now. just keep in touch with her and let her know everything is ok. I'm really not good with other peoples emotions, or communicating, but don't get mad at her she is just worried about you and she probably misses you. Just let her know you are ok and not to worry. Moms need reassurance that their kids are ok.
