I've always wondered how our mom felt about having our stepmom just hate her and constantly be incredibly jealous of her, lashing out in this fashion. Our stepmom really fucking hated our mom.

I remember when I was home alone as a kid and freaking out, I dialed a random number on the phone, just hit 7 numbers, and a woman picked up. I was just sobbing and begging her to help and telling her how scared I was. The woman was very nice and was scared for me but couldn't do anything to help so she comforted me and then we just had to hang up. I wonder how she's doing? I wonder what it was like getting a phone call like that.

I can't imagine how your mom felt. I also can't imagine being so angry and jealous I'd destroy things in the house.

That was kind of that woman to comfort you. I don't know how I'd react to being called like that.

I remember there was this women who was trying to get a hold of her son, who ran away from a rehab facility. She didn't have his girlfriend's cell but in an a attempt to reach the women she was dialing random numbers. She ended up calling me but I didn't know how to react. I just told her to call 911 and file a missing person report. I never knew if her son was okay but I guess I never will.

This is such a heavy story and uh, I'm not being judgemental and I remember your other comics about your stepmother but it's just sad life has to be like that for everyone involved... Sometimes I think not being able to do something about something is the heaviest feeling of all, especially for adults - children still believe adults can fix everything eventually, then they grow up and know better.

When my mother used to work in a different city she wrote letters to me and I still have them. They feel odd, a bit how your mother sounds here - her trying to keep it positive enough and simple enough for a child to grasp but looking back it must have been awful for her back then (though your mother had it harder, I lived with my grandparents so I wasn't scared or in any danger, just lonely).

Thanks for sharing this and making me think.

@daviddoesntgetit: I'm totally crying right now. My mom was actually pretty out of it. She would come home and start cursing me out and threatening my life and things. One day she almost tried to throw dishes at me. I was pretty scared of her. I'm pretty sure that woman still thinks of that day, as being terrifying and having regrets for not being able to do anything. More than likely, you changed her life and made her aware of things like this. That's just my opinion, but small things like that would make us better people.

And here I was complaining about my mom trying to hit me with frying pan. Damn it, your story is on whole different level... It must've been very hard to cope with all this stress both for you and your mother...

@Reealt: Yeah, that's our stepmom.

@vlogsister98: Wow, holy shit. I hope things ended up ok for her. I hope she didn't feel helpless, either.

@Oly-RRR: Yeah, it's why I drew this comic. I remember Bernard and I believing our mom could have rectified the situation but looking back on it now, there was nothing she could have done. She really had no power. Granted, kids have less power so I can't imagine the frustrating of lacking the power to help someone with none.

At least our mom seems pretty happy now.

Ah, wow. I really liked that tidbit about you and your mom. I wish I had more to add but, I dunno. Thanks for sharing.

@yaoi4evandnevayuri: God, Jesus. Why would your mom do that? How old were you?

Haha. I wonder. I still think about it from time to time and thankful she did her best to calm me down.

@sara: Hey, hey. This ain't not pity olympic here, no one wins for having a sad past. Even though no one wins, there are definite losers, they're the ones that try to fucking one up everyone else. Fucking shits.

God, Jesus. I'm sorry your mom tried to hit you with a frying pan. That sounds fucking awful as shit.

Hmm, probably 9 or so. I'm not really sure. It was around the time she was still alive and I was getting bullied from classmates. So, before I was 11 for sure.

she probably wished she could do more. i know i would wish the same. I guess she would be glad to know that you are doing better now and that you are ok
