    Chill out, you're being irrational!

    Keep trying to get through to her; she's family!

    There's nothing you can do until she admits there's a problem; ignore her.

    Get out now, she's toxic!

    Here’s the thing. You have to keep yourself healthy and sane. Trust me, my “father” is the toxic person in my life. I struggled for years before I was finally able to walk away from all of his crap without any guilt. People said (and still say) that I need to be the bigger person and that I need to give of myself because he’s family. Pardon my language, but bull****.
    We are no less important than these toxic family members. We owe them nothing. They are adults, they make their own choices. No one is forcing them to act inappropriately, and no one should have to clean up their messes. I ache for your grandmother especially, there is no way that she should feel that any of this is her fault. Some people are just, pardon me again, idiots.

    You are not insane, irrational or any variation of the word “incorrect” in this situation. Protect yourself, and don’t feed into her drama. Good luck!Smile
