Sorry your going thru this. Tell me do you actually speak to her live when she calls? If so, thats a big no, no. You know what works for me — VOICEMAIL. When I see certain neurotic family members calling, I send it straight them right to vm. They rant and rave for 3-4 minutes. I refuse to pick up the phone. DELETE. That way at least I control the interaction. Half the time I don’t even bother to listen to the message, cause I know where its going. I simply call back when I’m good and ready (usually after a day or two) and if they dare go there, I calmly get off the phone. You have to train them to respect your boundries. I know its not easy to listen to even 30 seconds of them live, but I don’t give them the reaction they are pushing for. I refuse to have them disrespect me, using my Sprint minutes, oh hell no.

I hear you, only it’s my dad who keeps freaking out. I also do the voice mail screen if I’m not at home. I’ve been living at home this year and it has been HOE (hell on earth). I mostly exit rooms he is occupying to avoid hearing all about the latest molehill-turned-mountain.

Some parents just aren’t good at taking turns or sharing attention.
