I wanted to see what you thought about this and how you would handle this... Maybe not handle, but would think... Thing is, there is no talking to this woman because she is the "victim" and will cry if you say anything meaningful to her..
I love my mom, but she has a major "need to be needed" complex. She thinks that the world would fall apart with0ut her. She is married to a super needy man that she pushes around because that is what makes her happy.
I have been sick with a thyroid disease for months, she has not asked me one time how I'm doing. I have a son who is bipolar and drains my brain...she and her hubby really do not care about all that.
She is CONSTANTLY asking me when I'm coming out... I live 45 miles away and work full time. I feel so pulled in every direction that I have 0 time for myself. I try to keep up with her demands, but it interfers with what I want and need to do for myself and family.
It is clear that she does not take any of this into consideration and really feels that she is the CENTER of my life.
I called out there the other day and got her hubby, he asked "WHEN ARE YOU COMING OUT???" The weekend before, I went out to give him b-day present and visit. The more I visit, the more and more they need me to come....
I went a few days and didn't call, I was sick! When my mom called me, she was hateful and said "WELL, it has been a few days since I talked to your!!"..
It makes me feel anxiety and resentment, I am starting to loath the caller ID. Not to mention that my mom is not pleasant... If I say the sky is blue, it is green to her...She has been there for me before (mostly loan money) but ususally she just wants to point out that I'm thin and she is heavy or just a weird duel... I am so tired of feeling like keeping them happy is part of my job!!
