I was recommened to come here by a buddhist lj acquiantance. I have a mother who is very ill. Her sickness spreads to whomever is in her general site because it is so bad. She suffers from dilusions, anxity, depression, and is excessively abusive. Her brain is set on narcisstic autopilot, so technically she feels she is immune from hurting others, only other people can hurt her. It is hard to swallow her somedays and I find myself feeling violent sometimes. I never act upon it but I could use all of the support I can get. Well, that is enough for now. I have to get to class. I could use anything at this point to cope. Thank you.
