Do I Have Toxic Parents Or Is It Me?

Dear Judge Mental Jones,

My parents know I have anxiety, and they got a dog, which they know gives me anxiety, what should I do?

Dear Anxiety Dog, 

First of all, your parents are dicks. Huge dicks! Not just for getting the dog, but for not letting you pick the perfect YouTube-ready puppy. These idiots must not know how money-making is accomplished these days. I hope you at least get to name the dog. Make it a cute name so you can start an Instagram with it, or just rename it for Instagram.

I don’t know the full circumstances of this situation, and I’m going to assume they got the dog thinking it will help you with your anxiety. The old face your fears deal.

Your parents didn’t listen to your needs, and that just makes your trust in them disappear. When you have a conversation with them, discuss your trust issues and how this puppy situation will further divide you. You’ll never want to tell them what’s going on with you ever again because of how much it hurts to feel so misunderstood.

If they don’t listen to that, then you just have shitty parents. And if this is the case, I’d recommend buying them dog a shirt and re-naming it something they hate. You can always move out, but that would involve a job, and I have a feeling that will cause you even more anxiety right now.

Good luck!

Dear Judge Mental Jones,

My mother says she has dissociative amnesia and I don’t know if it’s officially diagnosed or not. She says she doesn’t remember any of the horrible things she did to me when I was young and now I’m angrier than ever. Thoughts on what to do?

Dear Dissociative Daughter,

This is a tricky one. There’s no proof that your mom doesn’t have dissociative amnesia, but I assume she’s showing you no doctors evidence as well. So, if she is lying: Tell her to go fuck herself. Like a real big, double one finger salute from me, times 1000, go fuck herself.

That shit did happen to you, and it was wrong. Don’t you ever let her tell you otherwise. You need to attempt to heal from this past abuse, and if this is what your mother is doing to you now, it’s up to you if you want to have her as part of your life or not. It’s a judgment I can’t make for you.

However, being Judge Mental Jones and all that it entails, If this were me, I’d kick that no good piece of poo to the curb and let my healing process truly begin.

Why? Because you’re worth it! And don’t you let anyone be dismissive of your experience. Anyone! That’s including you.

However, if your mom isn’t lying, then I suggest you both go to therapy together so you can understand each others issues much better. Obviously you both have individual work to do yourselves, but the group work will help give you the healing you need if your mom really is on the up and up.

Now give me a hug and please don’t tell anyone I’m a softy. I have a reputation to uphold.
