I don’t know if this will be useless or helpful. But I am considering trying to confront my sister, the golden child, about my mom.
Some points I want to make:
“Have you ever noticed how mom tries to put us against each other? Against dad?”
“You have always resented me because mom ‘gives me everything’ when I mess up …why do you think she rewards me for failing?”
“You feel like mom and dad hold things over your head. ”
“You pointed out that mom would love to see your relationship fail. You said this. Why do you think that is?”
I’m not even going to tell her about how mom makes me out to be crazy. She isn’t ready for that and will have a knee jerk reaction.
What she needs to see is that our mom is VERY manipulative and has no issues bending the truth to get her way. Once she sees that , everything else will fall into place.
I also need to talk to my doctors. I know i was misdiagnosed and need to get their “ok” to be off these mood stabilizers.
