I also have issues with my mom. She is not verbally abusive but extremely controlling. I am also in my fifties with grown children and a grandchild. My mother is very sweet when you talk to her but she has absolutely no interest in talking about anyone but herself. That is how it has been my entire life. She acts like a two year old and wants to be the center of attention at all times. Our biggest bone of contention is religion.

I am no longer going to feel guilty if I don't answer the phone when she calls-I need to take care of myself! I know I am not the one to take care of her when the time comes. I feel like it is my sisters or brother job!
