My mom at some point in my life put the fear of God in me. I say this because I have never ever been able to speak my mind around her or stand up for myself. The thing is she isn't a big woman, I don't remember ever being abused physically. I have always been physically strong, I could have probably taken her down in the 5th grade if I would have wanted to. She would sometimes say things that I feel were emotionally abusive. The thing is now that I am an adult and have children of my own I still feel like a meek child around her. She is sick with MS and it has affected her to the point were she in now in a wheel chair and suffers( though wont admit to it) from dementia. I have 3 small children who are very active and into everything and because of that she cannot stand my daughter. She never says it to me, but I feel it and she has said things to other family members. I just don't know how to stand up to her or even just talk to her about it so I stay away and say nothing. Which isn't fair to her because she doesn't understand. What do I do when she is sick and I don't even know if she realizes what she is doing????
