I'll get straight to it: my mom is always putting others down and causing a fuss over everything. She always feels like she's being attacked by your words no matter what has been said. I'm over it! Yesterday I went to visit her (she lives 45 min away) and we were having dinner at the table with my Sis and my stepdad. We we're having a great conversation talking about possibly renting a cabin and going up as a family for a weekend in the future. We joked and laughed and everyone was fine. Then my mom said to my sis that how was she going to be able to afford it because she never just spent money on breast implants and should have spent it on other things and so on. She was full of low blows to my Sis. Well my Sis said mom it's no ones business that I had breast implants and I do have money so I don't even know why you would say this especially right now. The whole mood went down hill. My dad told my mom to please stop insulting my sister and then suddenly my mom starts screaming at him too. I'm sitting there saying to myself, WTF!!? She then starts saying that she's always wrong and whoa me blah blah blah. Every one is supposedly attacking her...but no one is. It's always this way with her. She says means things and if we tell her to stop she causes an argument with everyone. And if she vents to you and you say mom look I understand how you feel but you said something mean and hurtful and thats why he responded that way, she will get mad at you for not taking "her side"
She is soo dramatic and unstable and refuses to view it herself. She can nag you all she wants and your wring if you say it's not ok, regardless if it was respectful or not. I have stopped speaking to her for her BS many times.
This last time I told her that although I am family I am still a guest in this house an shouldn't be involved in their issues nor should they think it's ok to cause arguments infront of me, my dd and my SO. I do joy drive that far to here that shit!!
What to do?? Shoudl I just ignore her even if it causes arguments when It has to do with drama? Should I tell her I'm not coming over anymore? Oh and another thing, she is now threatening a divorce from my stepdad because he's not on her side...WTF!? I see him as my dad, she treats him like shit! I'm pissed!
