I have an excellent relationship with my mom but I have a really bad one with my stepfather. I have lived with my mom and stepdad for several years because of my health. I have been through a lot mentally with my stepdad and have finally found somewhere else to live. My mom is now not speaking with me. I told her I was moving out. She said this was out of the blue why didn't you ask my opinion. (I am 27 years old.) My mom said I told my friend that I was a slave. Not true, I told her that I would be happy not to cook anymore because its hard me because of my health. She said I shouldn't have told my friend who is letting me move in with her my problems, I just need someone outside the family to talk to. I didn't ask her to move in she asked me. I told my friend that I was planning to move in with my sister at first but that was up in the air and that if I got out of my parents house I would be all right since I was having bad thoughts. Like I said my friend offered, I even made sure she knew what she was getting into. I even said if you have second thoughts its fine. What did I do wrong? I am depressed anyway I was trying to find peace of mind but this is making it worse. Any advice would help? Am I in error?
