---flutterby: yea, I have had this happen to me before-- so I've learned to be quite careful what I say.

---flutterby: Not sure I understand.... do you think you're a bad person because someone has cried "wolf" over and over again and you don't know when it's time to REALLY come running? is that it?...... seems to me your mom has the problem --(in this situation) It is not the fault of the person that hears empty warnings and disregards them-- it's the persons fault that keeps ringing the bell when nothing is really wrong....... some of those types of people seem to be starving for attention... do you think that could be the case with your mom? (you don't have to answer that here in public-- just something to ponder.....)
Could you talk to someone else near your mom to get another view? ...... if your dad is around, or maybe a neighbor of hers or a friend of hers...... this way it could perhaps curb your worry of what to believe.

My mom has a pathology to lie so I have to always check her stories and such.....it can put ones mind at ease to hear another's view.
