My mother has always been emotionally dependent on other people all of her life. Since my stepfather's death, she has decided I was to be her emotional savior. I do not want to handle her emotional baggage considering she is the one who creates the problems. I have suggested therapy, but she is suspicious of Mental Health Professionals. She refuses to say anything to my sisters about her problems, she doesn't want to worry them needlessly. Yet, I am the one who has spent years in and out of counseling and hospitalizations for depression and suicide attempts. She is totally insensitive to my emotional wellbeing. I am now strong and free from the demons from my past. I welcome any suggestions to help me keep my inner strength I worked so hard to achieve and not get caught up in her emotional entrapment.
