I know this is a really rough time for her, but I don't know how to comfort her when she gets like this. And the fact that she resorts to insulting me or purposefully trying to be hurtful doesn't make me really want to be comforting, to be honest. I told her we didn't have to move out today (a bit of a lie, but if it would make her feel better, I would talk to the school or something) and/or she really didn't have to help me (I offered this before but she assured me everything would be fine).
So I'm sitting here, binless, until my father comes around at five. Hopefully by then, I'll be allowed back in the house. Until then, I'd like to know - how do you think I could better have managed this and the other situations which will doubtlessly arise once I'm back home? I really want honest criticism because I want to avoid this. Also, she keeps calling me, but she's not saying anything useful ('that shirt doesn't go with those pants', 'your father isn't coming' even though he is because I just called him and he's not angry at me). I feel bad, but should I stop answering? I don't want to piss her off more, but she seems to just be trying to upset me and I don't need that.
