My mother is 71 years old, has diabetes and high blood pressure. She lives by herself, but not far from me. She makes me feel horrible. She criticizes me for everything from my looks to my life style. I try to stay away from her. I call her daily, and every time I'm about to call her I get an anxiety attack. Even right now writing this I'm covered in hives from just the thought of the situation. She has pushed everyone away and is completely alone. She disowned me twice since Christmas. I can't take it anymore.
