Hi my Mum is in her early 70s my Mum is scared of my sister. She has just moved thousands of miles away.
I only found out a week before she left.
My mum wants to spend time with us and her grandchildren but she's not allowed to.
Even though she's thousands of miles away she's still manipulating and controlling her.
My mum's mental health has decreased she's being manipulated and controlled and isn't allowed to make her own choices without my younger siblings permission.
She arranged care without communicating to me I have had very nasty messages from her step daughter. Who calls her Granny.
I want to form a good relationship and bond with my Mum yet as her only daughter closest to her. I am trying to help her be more independent and make her own choices and decisions for herself. Build her confidence and self esteem. Try and sustain the very little independence she has.
I am very concerned that this is emotional abuse. My mum's health hasn't been good.
My sister demonstrates narrcistic tendencies and has actually accused me of bullying my Mum when the opposite is true.
Another relative has expressed concerns too. I feel as I am banging my head off a brick wall.
My sister is now trying to dictate when and when I can see my Mother.
This has been very stressful I love my Mum but now have decided to stay away for my own peace of mind.
I want what is best for my mum and I am very hurt over the whole situation.
Any advise would be welcomed. Thanks.
