My mom has always been sneaky since before she had an aneurysm and strokes. I cry to her and plead with her to understand what her lies and deception does to me and the family we are trying to build and have even taken away things as punishment. Goodness, I feel lost for what to do since she is my parent and young. She is all there mentally which makes it even more difficult. It feels like she is stabbing me in the back with each lie. Would like to understand how others may deal with a similar issue.
