I have never been in a chat site and am nervous, but also at the end of my rope. I always thought I just might be the crazy one, but the fact of the matter is my own mother is an emotional abuser. I always knew she was manipulative and dishonest and very "two-faced", but we always swept it under the rug. However the other night she actually got physical and attacked me then went downstairs and claimed I attacked HER, then told people the same story the next day. I am an adult so it feels embarrassing, but when I went online and looked up Emotional Abuse, she fit each and every line. And then when I saw the signs in a Victim, I fit . I have a 14 year old sister and do not want her to end up making the same mistakes I did as a result of the emotional damage being inflicted. My father doesn't know what to do either and it is destroying us to always be on edge. However through it all She remains "blameless and never at fault" I need some help because at the point I'm at, I would rather be dead than take anymore of her crap. I guess I'm just hoping someone can help me figure out what I need to do, because only my father and sister know the REAL her. Everyone else gets the fake her and the lies where she plays the victim. What can I do??
