I'm sorry you're having such a tough time of living with your Mom, but you have to understand that SHE doesn't understand or doesn't have any respect for the alternatives methodologies. Don't take it personally. It's part of the culture she grew up in, believing in big pharma as a solution to everything, and that doctors are infallable. I'm sure she loves you and wants what's best for you, and to her that means big pharma.
You're young, and open minded, she's not.
But I understand your frustration and anger.
