Confusion from narcissistic mother.
I have wrote before about my mother before,she's 79 and pretty healthy, and has lived with my wife and daughter and me for three months, and we're all miserable at least half of the time. right now, she's okay for the last few days, but then someone will hurt her feelings on the phone, or not visit when they should and she'll sit and pick on everything I do,sleeping in recliner, smoking, what or daughter is doing,(which we told her was a off limit subject,we are the parents) and then I'll get fed up and yell back and she'll blow up and pout, and sulk,and in case we don't notice , she'll come in the living room with us,and then barely answer you if you speak to her, and not speak at all, until we try to ignore her, then she'll go in her room and close the door hard! She's a Dr. Jeckll and Mr. Hyde and she's always been that way, even when I was a child, that's why none of her kids want her to live with them, she tattles to each child about the other ones until most of the time we don't speak to each other. and I don't know how much more of this my wife and I can take. As I said, things have been good for a couple of days, but we do not know when its coming again!! I need to hear from some of you that are going through kinda the same thing. Maybe we can help each other!!
