It’s the same for me! I told her I’d had enough & no more contact on Facebook or emails. Just meet in person now & again. Horrible been afraid to be yourself in case you upset them for who knows what. The stuff I’ve been told off is just crazy.
I have a similar issue with my mum. The only way I have been able to deal with it, it to limit contact.
Sounds very much like borderline personality disorder to me. My ex's daughter was one of those. Always had to be the centre of attention, created dramas to get it, jealous and resentful about anyone elses relationships.
We cut her out of our lives. There was no other way to manage it. She was just so toxic - to everyone.
It sounds like there is more to this than you know about, maybe a mental disorder that she has either kept hidden or is undiagnosed. I guess you could write her a letter, just say that you feel.
she lives for the attention and loves drama by the sound of it and it's not fair that you have to waste so much energy on this. Don't buy into it and don't let her make you feel bad, it's her problem not yours and if you notice it I'm sure others do to. Don't try and appease her, just live your life and ignore her childishness. Play it cool, be friendly but don't flinch if she tries to rile you up or make a scene. Let it be known by your lack of response that she won't get anywhere by carrying on like that. Just like a child that is being bratty, ignore the bad behaviour, reward the good :)
My sister is like this. She has a diagnosed borderline personally disorder and this is why. How to deal with it? Well it is hard. Because sometimes when I am being careful about what I say she can take it personally. I just ignore her when she has her little childish tantrums because she does calm down. Never apologises though, just carries on like nothing happened.
