This is the treatment that made me snap on her. She would either pout or rage if I didn't do things for her at least every few days.
She was needing more help, after an illness, but of course MY schedule hasn't changed. When she started raging that no one helps her (meaning -- me.) I had HAD enough. I told her the things I'd been rehearsing in my head for a year. It felt so strange to finally let her have it. I made it clear that what I do for her is limited because she has treated me like sh!t my entire life, so I DO NOT feel obligated. I have a wonderful husband and kids. I do for stuff for them every single day, and I love it.
Of course she hasn't changed, she never will. But it was good for me, now she knows why I am MC, and she knows that I will no longer play the game of pretending she is a saint. Now when I get the "you don't love me/what have you done for me lately" routine, I change the subject.... to "welp, I gotta go".
