“My mom has anger management problems, and she takes it out on me and my brother, Jacob,” says JT, claiming that his mom is loud, attention-seeking and overbearing. “Living at home is hell. I never thought I would be living with my mom at age 24. She tries to guilt-trip me by saying if she left, nobody would ever look for her.”

JT’s younger brother, Jacob, adds, “Me and JT feel forced to react to all of our mom’s chaos. My mom plays victim a lot.”

The 24- and 20-year-old say they cope by smoking weed.
“If I’m not working, I’m home smoking weed. It’s like my glass of wine at the end of the day,” JT says.
“Smoking weed helps us suppress our feelings with our mom to whatever she’s trying to do to frustrate us,” Jacob adds.
