Similar to sticks, Mother worships my brother, treats me with flamboyant abuse on a random but frequent basis. Has all my life. My brother is not accessible to assist because of his wife. She uses the kiddos to manipulate the grandparents. My brother and I used to be very close before they married and I think she was jealous when their oldest child started to look up to me. The whole situation is very hurtful. We are all financially independent, living in our own homes. I am a single professional, long distance relationship. My divorced Mother has been described as Narcissistic by our family counselor and I have been described as having family scapegoat disorder. Dad is not accessible either, and displays some sort of avoidance behavior lately.
