She's coming round tonight, not on her scheduled night which means something is going down.
Think she's realised I'm pissed off with her complete lack of interest in the DC (amongst other things), which means I'll actually have to deal with the issues instead of alternating between sulking like a teenager and pretending everything is fine.
We have a VERY strained relationship, loads of issues going right back to childhood which is why I sound like a 13yo!
Might sound silly but before she arrives why don't you write down a list of things you'd like to say. Read it through a few times (or even have it with you!) and you won't get as confused or distracted by crying.
I would write a list but honestly nothing works with her, I can't bring up anything with her without her forcing out some tears and an awful lot of yelling. She has no idea what she did to me as a child, I had CBT too Zukie, I'd love for her to understand but I doubt she'd ever be willing to listen to anything that made her feel bad.
Full sympathy. Mother issues here too. Thanks for threads on relationships, I have diagnosed her as narc and this has helped me cope with her somewhat better. Like Zukies advice and this is how I mainly try to tolerate the time when I see her.
