I have a bit of a dilemma. My has been gradually letting people know that her daughter, me, is pregnant and coming home to give birth. Of course I am not married or engaged or even in a stable relationship and the baby's father was a one night stand (pls don't judge, there's more to it than being wild and carefree). Anyhow, she went and told her friend that the baby's daddy is my "boyfriend" (we have an on and off relationship that currently sucks and he is not from my home country). So she lied! She said it's easier for HER. I am concerned that when I get home this lady (who is my mom's best friend) is going to mention the dad and ask me something I cannot answer and then I have to lie. If I tell the truth my mom will look like an ass. How could she do this? Sometimes I feel like my mom makes everything about HER. She also has high blood pressure and tends to be highly strung so when we do simple things like shopping she rushes and is always talks about how she never rests etc. She is quite stressful to be around. When my sister was getting her documents ready to get her visa my mom says things about how it stresses HER out. WTF? We do stuff that affects us and she talks about how it affects her. I think it borders on being selfish to be honest. I do not have her high blood pressure problem. In fact mine is completely normal at 108 and I don't want her stressing me out. I think it is easier for me to live at home until the baby is born cos i don't want be alone come labor day... I feel so stuck. I am also accustomed to living on my own for 2.5 years and now suddenly have to be back with parents with their own opinions about what I should do etc. What to do? Any advice?
