In reply to My therapist thinks my situation is hopeless, posted by Dinah on July 7, 2008, at 11:48:52
I'm a few days late and probably a few dollars short to this thread, but I wanted you to know I understand and feel your pain. My mom somehow manages to put me between a rock and a hard place quite a bit. The thing is, she's the one who usually pulls the rock over toward herself and me, and I think *she* is the hard place. She won't budge to make things better for herself (or me, for that matter). She wants me to move the rock, and if I don't, I have to deal with her and her misery, which won't budge one bit because she doesn't want it to. It's her way of life now, and unfortunately, it's all she understands and feels comfortable with.
I don't know if I'm making any sense. I just know that being in a situation like yours does feel hopeless. If you can just somehow move the rock a little, tiny bit or lean up against your mom for a short moment, maybe you can squeeze your way out. Maybe the attorney can help you figure out the best way to do that without getting too scratched up in the process? Did you speak with him, yet?
Good luck with everything. I know this is hard.
