You obviously love your mother having said what you said in the way you did. I respect you as a person who does not walk away from ther person who gave birth to you, may it be for whatever reason she chose to.
I guess in a situation like yours, I in my naive years would have just said I would run away and never ever come back again. It might work, but it's not help in your situation having said that you are admirable in being loving to your mother still.
Have you any siblings which through you may transfer your love to your mother by? Or relatives who can do good to her, so it eases your heart to see her being treated well?
I do not understand how people can just come in a handcuff you unless there has been some previous history, but I guess I will just have to take it at word value that you are normal (your speech seems normal?:))
Take pride in who you are. I remember my mum always saying...
in this world, if you can satisfy 5 out of 10 people in their expectations of you, you are already a greta person". I never got to satisfy my mum, and I don't think I ever will just because her expectations always changes (apart from the expectation that she is the best *chuckle*).
You're obviously much more mature to me, so I'd feel intimidated in providing any further opinions :) But I do wish you all the best :)
