i dunno if anyone relates here but will try-

my mother as long as i remember has alwayas acted as if she was my friend/older sister. never really mother, well when she (rarely) shows me any care,

She asks me for advice about things, but doesnt want my advice anyway, just does it herself.
it's like
'what should i buy at the shops, a big milk or a small?
'small cos you wont get thru a big'
'i'll buy a big'
just completely ignoring my suggestion. there was really no point in me speaking, she'd get on without me, not sure why i think she wouldn't.
i feel like walking out and walking away from her, after the meetup i went to last night i just feel so odd and fucked up, last night after it i felt so happy, unfortunately the happiness from being with people who seemed nice has now gone.

clearly the way i feel isnt ever gonna matter to her let alone anyone else, and after how elated and happy i felt last night after the group meet i now feel shit again cos of my mum. i went to bed last night happy and like i mattered to some people..and i couldnt even sleep well for worrying about what they all thought of me.

i wouldnt be so scared now, and have so many fears if i'd had able parents.:mad::cry:

i know exactly what u mean
mine are delusional, and selfish, and need a lot of verbal and emotional support.

my life would not be in this hell if they weren't so selfish

I'm sorry things are difficult with your mum. Does she ever give you support? What support do you have in your real life?
