Hi I am 40 years old and I have a controlling carzy Mother. I think she has Narcisstic Personality Disorder. I have studied this order intently lately and it seems to fit. It causes me A LOT of anxiety. She constantly criticizes me and puts me down. And anyone I love she does the same thing to which is really abusive. Here is an example. My boyfriend lives with me. This is a very recent occurrence. She has invested into a house with me. She flew out to help me re-do the backyard. She ripped into my boyfriend last time she was here (last month). She was extrememly rude to him. This morning, she was rude to him again and started to boss him around. He took off lickety split. I left too, and went to a strip mall, parked and started to CRY. At 40???!! Then my BF called and did not want to offer emotional support so I told him I felt bad because he did not want to offer support. He felt criticized by me. He said he was sorry that he could not give me the 20 mins of attention I needed. I said that I would rather have 5 mins. of compassion than 20 mins. of attention. She is driving me crazy and I do not want her to scare him away.
