Re: Moms and Therapy ARGH!
hannie, don't fight, TALK. explain (calmly!) to you mother that you need to see your therapist every other week and tell her why. then explain that you understand it's inconvenient for her to re-schedule the appointment, but you really need to find a way that you can go to BOTH this week. can you offer to re-schedule it for her? just try to stay calm and talk it out. i remember getting REALLY frustrated with my mom doing annoying things like this when i was your age. i'm not criticizing you, but now when i look back, i realize all i did was argue and act snotty and pretty irrational with her when things didn't work out my way. if i'd just TALKED to her calmly, i think we would've had a lot less disagreements. so give it a try, just explain and find a compromise. i'm sure your mom'll appreciate the effort.
