How do you deal with over involved grandparents?

I'm the mother of 2 beautiful boys, one who is almost 3 and a newborn. My mother is making my life more and more difficult and I don't know how to cope. She accuses me of not spending time with my oldest son, and makes me feel like I'm inadequate. And when it comes to reprimanding my son, it's her way or no way. I live with my parents and can't financially afford to move out right now. I just don't know what to do and am running out of patience.

Yeah, they are pretty much stuck in their ways. It makes me want to beat my head against a wall!

I get some assistance but there's really nowhere to go for relief. My job is my kids right now, and I don't know how to get my mother to understand that she's extremely over involved and driving me fucking crazy!!!!!

I am in the EXACT same position as you. It's horrific. I can do no right. I take my kids everywhere, do everything for them, with them and it's not enough! It makes me SO angry! I have no choice either, my ex put me in a very bad spot. He gambled all of our money away. Do you have a job? Anywhere to get some relief? Are you getting assistance?
