Picking up the pieces....A story about a mother and daugther

Growing up in my household wasn't very easy. Yes, I've had some good times as a child and yes there somethings I wished I could forget. My mother whom I love dearly, we haven't had the best relationship in the world. My mother has always been the "its my way or its still my way" kind of person. Having that type of attitude we bumped heads at times and then she'd bump my head. After I moved out of my moms house 10 years ago I vowed to never go back ever again.

Now she's moved to Ohio where I am and we now share a house together. Over those 10 years of being on my own I thought my issues with my mother were pretty much handled, but little did I know past unreconciled feelings I would regurgitate. I've tried talking to her about the issues but it results to shouting and screaming matches. One time she got in my face and threaten to beat me and I really really had to pray because I think I would have done something to her if she hit me.

I really want to know how to deal with this because she called me all kinds of "bitches" tonight and I almost told her to call me one to my face and see what happens. I had to ignore her and pull out my bible! I want to get through this so I can help someone else who is struggling to deal with a difficult parent.

I know I'm not the only one dealing with this issue and if it takes blogging to receive a mental and spiritual release from this issue, not just for me but for some of you too well this is what I will have to do.
