I really don't know where to post this at all! Basically I am a student in my last year of uni, 20 years old. Have not had the worst life in the world by far. But a very sticky divorce of parents, which has left me guilt tripped into having no relationship with my father (even though I would love for him to come to my wedding and graduation ect) Since being at uni, I have only fully realized the amount of control my mother has on me in my life and I don't know how to deal with it. She has been very mentally ill in the past, eg. tried to commit suicide with me in the car. But the most hurtful thing ever is she loves my sister so much more, and shows her amazing favoritism. She does not support me in anyway, she picks me apart, spends loads of money on herself and sis but nothing on me, constantly reminds me im like my father, blackmails me, but seems to play the goody all the time, and only my friends at uni see it! I just feel so hopeless, and have no idea how to deal with the situation. She is now mentally stable and has been for some time, works as a counsellor and is in a stable relationship. I was really just wondering if anyone has any tips, as I do not know if i can deal with this anymore. Please help, sorry to ramble!
