I hope you blocked her as well.

I’d cut her off, TBH – no need for destructive people like that in your life.

@Cummins59:  my mom is this way…

misery loves company. my mom gets drunk because she is miserable with her life (she has made lots of poor decisions and put herself in the positions she is in, and refuses to change, take initiative or responsibility for herself or her life). she then sends rants and novel-length texts to me telling me how selfish i am, how i abandoned my family (i moved across the country for my career), what a terrible person i am and how the whole family hates me now, etc. its crazy the things she says when she’s drunk.

she’s probably just a really unhappy person who thinks that if she isn’t happy, other people don’t deserve to be happy, either. like my mom, it sounds like she spends a lot of time trying to bring other people down.

i recently quit communicating with my mother except to answer questions about the wedding (need-to-know questions, not random ones). it has helped a lot.

sorry you’re going through this. alcoholism and narcissistic behavior don’t go well together. :/

@Cummins59:  sort of. but she blames all of her problems on everyone and everything else, so its not solely directed at me. its less of her blaming me for her problems, and more of her just telling me all the things she’s decided are wrong with me. its exhausting.

but to be honest, NOT speaking to her has made my life sooo much better. its sad, sometimes i want to text her and get her support, but i know it will turn into a pity party for her. so i look other places- my dad, friends, my FI…

sometimes growing up is just a bitch. :p
