well Cheyenne's boyfriend Blake says Cindy is really using Cheyenne and ruining her future ruining her credit ruining everything about her now Cindy's younger daughter Cherokee says that she knew early on to distance herself from her mother and has no intention of ever taking care of her take a look I think my mom should get a job she's been dependent on someone her whole life it was first her parents and then her first husband and then my dad and then my aunt so my mom is planning on and wants to live with my sister for the long haul I don't think it's fair my sister has never had a childhood because you know she's been taking care of my mom I think my mom is manipulating Cheyenne to feel as though she's this monster or this fat daughter and she has been guilt tripping her for years she'll start to pull a card saying you know you're my daughter you're supposed to take care of me saying I just want to go to sleep and never wake up I just want to curl up in a ball and die my mom is a negative energy in the home for Cheyenne well thank you for joining us you have a different dynamic with your mother than your sister does yes tell you why I stayed with my dad so I grew up kind of with my dad going to high school and then afterwards I decided I want to go to college outside of the state and so I've just kind of been removed you know physically too so right do you think she's as sick as she says she is um I do believe that she is in pain every day with her arthritis and her knees and everything I feel as though that she is more sick mentally and that's kind of making the physical pain worse so what are you going to do here what do you want from your mother tell her what you want from her that you're not getting I would like help for myself by you helping yourself would like you to start figuring out where you can live on your own separate from me I can't do it anymore I just like to be respected as my own person my own life and to be given the space to go ahead and pursue it what do you think about what she's saying I agree I want her to have that I do I just I don't know where to turn if this is 100 percent of what you can do every day you know just a yardstick we doesn't figure er see that's a hundred percent of the everything you can do every day how much of that do you think you're doing on a daily basis now probably twenty thirty percent okay so you could do much more than you're doing well I don't know if there's a lot more that could be done yes I I don't have it it hurts right I mean it hurts a lot okay what are you so frustrated about I didn't know they felt this way how could you not I mean really how could you not know that this is how they feel because whenever she pushes back you get really upset with her right have you thrown things at her have you yelled at her have you guilt induced err have you done things that have really bended your frustration oh no you have threatened suicide and I think that's horrible to say to a child I just want help you seem to me to be capable of doing a lot more than you're doing and when I say that you know well but I'm in pain a lot of us are in pain every day [Applause] and now you can either watch it well I know you raised this girl you raised this girl and they seem to me to have turned out pretty damn well because most of what you did you did before you checked out and you can check back in that's what I want you just don't know how right
