Dear McKoy: How Do I Deal with My Ungrateful Mother? (McKoy’s News) – I have been living overseas for the past year in order to make a living for my family. Over that time I have dealt with multiple persons trying to kill or harm me.
I have also had to deal with being homesick and depressed. Above all things, I dated a married man, which I did not like in order to be able to provide for my mother. I recently ended the relationship and my mother cursed me out because I am not able to provide as much money as I used to when I dated this man.
Last week I sent her US$50 through Western Union and she called me cursing. I asked her if she wanted me to become a prostitute in order to provide for her and she told me as long as she was able to get more money she doesn’t care.
What do you think I should do? Do you think I should live my own life and forget about my mom? She was never there for me when I was growing up and she still isn’t here for me. She only cares about herself and has always only cared about herself. Tell me McKoy, what should I do?

Dear Unappreciated Woman,
You have really been through it all and it seems you lack the support of a loving mom. You are the child not the mother and the stuff your mother is asking you to do is way beyond disgusting and trifling. What kind of mother would willingly have her child do whatever it takes to make a little extra cash?
Your mother seems to be a bad influence on you. It’s great that you still provide for her how you can and when you can. Never let anyone put you in a position where you are uncomfortable with the choices you make.
It’s also great that you ended the relationship you had with the married man. Hopefully, you will be able to find a good man who will actually deserve your love and respect.
