    Thanks! I don't feel great, but I am just accepting I have no choice but to muddle through.I do need to find a photo of her when she was young so I can think of her as a once sweet and vulnerable child and not a tyrant.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Thanks for your very supportive words and for sharing about your own experience. I related to how you felt and handled things. I am not so generous like I may seem in my writing. I have defended myself before. I did twice lose it and yell back a number of months ago. Now I stay calm, but it doesn't really help diffuse things or decrease my hurt. I still end up ruminating and anxious. I am trying hard to have empathy, but I can't say I have achieved it. For years as this was brewing and increasing I was able to empathize more, but now I am just burned out. I do hope the one-day-at-a-time approach helps me together with pushing myself to try to remember the fear and anxiety that must be setting this off. I want to be loving and forgiving, but I cannot be that way in the moment or even after. As days pass, if there is not another tantrum for a while i can be a wee bit generous, but still I resent it tremendously. I feel like the mourning process is starting again as I slowly lose another parent who seems healthy in every other way.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!!
