Unhappy Reaching the edge..

My mom has been seemingly unstable for my 16 year existence, she can be all normal one second and then go to each of the extremes within a 10 minute span. I don't want to pretend that i know what she has but this seems to be the closest thing to it, she has alot of emotional problems from my parents divorce and takes them out combined with her stress on me. I ask her to see someone but she just gets more agitated and berates me more. Does anyone have any feedback?

Run or hide and fast. No not really. Learning to cope with someone like this can be tiresome. Is your mother on meds for her condition?
God Bless

Re: Reaching the edge..

My heart goes out to you sweety....I went through something similar to this with my Mom (35 years ago) when our family ceased to exist. I know it's hard for you right now, and may be for some time. Even if you can't get your Mom to the much needed help from a professional, don't let it control you.

After many sessions with a counselor I realized I can only control myself. If my parents choose to self destruct, it is not my fault. If my Mother chooses to take it out on me, I know I did nothing, I will not accept the blame.

Be courageous, don't let her take you down with her. Be there for her when she finally comes to her senses, hug her, forgive her then release it.

Most of all, take care of yourself. Get counseling for yourself to give you support and maybe some answers. Hopefully, you have family and friends that can support you.
