I already got a c*nty text from my mom and it's only noon! The 'old' angry me would have sent back an equally obnoxious text, but the 'new', working on my anger me, is ignoring it and venting here instead.

I need to take yoga or learn deep breathing!

That sucks. My mom is awesome, I am very lucky. Good luck working on your anger. Remember people can only make you angry if you let them!

LMAO! I am glad you are working on you. I made no resolutions for myself this year. Ok, maybe to put more effort in my marriage.

Why don't you send here a calm, logical text setting boundaries and explaining with "I" statements how you feel and the consequences for whatever behavior. (I feel x, y or z when I get text messages that have swearing, name calling, accusations, etc. When I receive texts with these things in them, I will no longe respond until I get an apology for x, y, z behaviors. I love you, Mom and hope we can have a better year of communication!)

My sisters wanted to get POA because she doesn't take care of her health. They both called "not it!" even though I don't have a relationship with her, but I'm oldest, so I drew the short straw.

I talked to her primary care doctor, and explained how she is doctor shopping for Vicodin, Oxy and Xanax. He said he can't stop her Xanax cold turkey, but he'd wean her off. If she goes to him for pain meds, he will only prescribe non-narcotic meds.

So, the text today was: "Do not contact any oft doctors or me. If you do. I will call the police." (Her typos, not mine.) My sister must have told her what went on.

I'm so done! I said to my daughter, "Stick a fork in me, I'm done!" (She doesn't know what was behind it.) She said, "What kind of fork and won't that hurt?" (She's 9!)

I'd remove myself from that situation. You're doing the right thing

I usually don't make resolutions, but I have a quick anger trigger, and I get that from her, and I don't want to be her!

Aw! That's for that. I do have to remember to not give away my power to others.
