Ask your mommy to get several different kinds of brushes/combs that look different from the one you have now.
You may find that you actually like being brushed with a particular kind - I personally like soft natural bristles, but my cousins like combs with metal teeth that get deep into fur to scratch the skin.
It's all preference, I guess!
Anyway, if you try different brushes, you might not bite Mommy so much when she tries to groom you.
Also, ask her to approach you when you're sleeping/ sleepy and pet you first with the brush in reach but out of sight. After a little purr session, you might not get so fussy with the brush either.
Have her stop with the brush after only one or two strokes if you don't bite her right away - she wants to end the "brushing" on a good note, which can't happen if she pushes her luck and tries "just one more" until you get irritated and bite her.
If she slowly acquaints you with a brush you can tolerate a few times a day, reinforced with positive purr sessions before and after, you might discover that you like being brushed after all
