I am so sorry for the truly horrific experiences you have had and continue to have with your mother. It sounds like an unending nightmare.
That you are still alive and sane is a tribute to your strength. Maybe, next Mother's Day, you could celebrate yourself! You did the only real mothering in your household and you should honor your and your sister's survival.
Your post was not "up" before I composed mine, and I was appalled to see my tongue-in-cheek subject line right below yours. The juxtaposition was accidental; no slight was intended.
