My Mom is my stress!
My 71 year old narscasistic mother relies on my oldest daughter and myself to be her happiness and to entertain her. She talks non stop, shops away every dime she gets and tries to control everything we do. She had a fit because she found out that we were discussing a vacatithat(with no intention of inviting her). My daughter said we just won't go or gram will be hurt! I know many people vacationing for spring break and none of them are taking their parents. Mom says we don't like her or want to be around her and honestly, it's true. She sucks the life out of us! The only time anyone gets to talk, when she is around, is when she is pouting and giving us the silent treatment. She attempts to manipulate everyone. She had my younger daughter, with no drivers license drive her one day because she got suddenly very ill. About 10 minutes from home they pulled over and mom drove. She told my daughter, see, I'm pulling into the driveway so we can say I drove home and it won't be a lie. She's done this type of stuff all my life and I hate it! She has a nice home, car, and income but she's been arrested for stealing several times. She's a fake living a lie. She tells people what she wants them to think or partial truths. It's rather scary! I feel obligated to be there for her, only because she is my mother but if she wasn't I'd have nothing to do with her and it causes me guilt!
