When it's her frustrations about her own abilities to cope are in Question? Mum is 75. Fiercely independent. She treats me and my sister Like dirt in public. My brother moved to QLD 9 yrs ago to get away from her. She was bleeding him dry financially living the high life she thought she deserved because she is better than others didn't you know! Well she's not. She gets no financial help from any of us now. So she winges and b^tches about that. She is close to her 2 sisters but has been pushing her friends away due to her condescending attitudes and behaviours. It is so aweful to watch.. You can't have any fun with her anymore.She bleeds you dry emotionally.
