Okay, so my mom just got back from staying with her mother after having some minor surgery. She obviously hasn't been feeling great, so since she got home yesterday, I've done EVERY LITTLE THING she's asked me to do. Until I screwed up just a bit, and burned the potatoes I was supposed to cook for dinner. She got really upset, and I asked her what was wrong. I was very calm, and concerned. She said that I wasn't being helpful. This really hurt, since I had worked my heart out since she got home to make sure she was alright, and had everything she needed. I was pretty much in tears, then she comes over to me and dumps the whole thing of potatos (pot and all) into the trash bin, and yells at me for ruining the pot. I totally lost it and screamed back how I felt like I had done everything I could to help her out, and that I felt unappreciated. I don't know why I yelled, I was just so hurt that I didn't know what else to do. I went calmly into my room, because I knew if I stayed out there any longer, things would probably get ugly. So I guess she kicked the trash can at my door, and when I opened the door to see what was going on, I saw the scariest face I have ever seen in my life. I seriously thought that would be the last sight I'd ever see. What do I do? I'm too afraid to leave my room, for fear she might start yelling at me again. I called my grandmother, and all I got was some crazy advice about "tell her calmly" and other stuff that I had already done. I almost ended up screaming at her too, even though she doesn't even have anything to do with what's going on.
