Vicious narcissistic Mother lives with me!
My narcissistic mother lives with me. She is only 68 and has ALWAYS been a mean vicious miserable person. I am in my 40's and feel stuck. I don't bring anyone over because she finds fault with everyone. She doesn't like anyone. I mean no one! This includes all the people at her church and in 50 years of going it hasn't made her a nicer person. She has no friends and is negative ALL the time. She has no income and no other housing alternatives. She didn't plan for her retirement because her religion told her the world was coming to an end (they have been wrong 5 times).....well that didn't happen and now she is stuck with me. I work 60 hours a week and come home to her, between my stressful job, commute, bills AND her. Its really hard on me. I have one brother, who is a complete loser and can't count on him for anything. I took care of my abusive alcoholic father until he died, now her and for awhile even my brother. I don't want to feel sorry for myself. But.....when is it 'me' time? My mother's father is 91 and still doing really well. She is only 68! I feel like a doormat for my family and have cut my brother off permanently because I am tired of taking care of grown adults. I have financially assisted my immediate family since I was 15. I am frustrated and concerned this could go on for another 25 years. Anyone else in a similar situation?
