I am living with a 40 y o woman who was abused and neglected as a child. She still carries all this baggage with her and refuses to acknowledge that her manipulative, controlling, and emotionally abusive behavior is abnormal. She actually said, "My children obey me to avoid making me mad." On top of the PTSD type issues, she's bipolar and won't take meds. "Wellbutrin is my happy pill but it made me get fat." It seems unlikely that I could get enough of her friends and family to participate in a group intervention. Any advice on getting to admit there's a problem would be appreciated.
