Guilt In Human Form...
My mother is the Avatar of Guilt. She has ceased to be human at all -- she has taken on her Aspect, and raised up her Attribute, and become the very embodiment of Guilt Itself.

It is literally no longer possible for her to utter more than a sentence or two, without trying to emotionally manipulate me. To control me, as she always used to do.

I was very lucky, to have fallen into a reason and opportunity to leave Houston when I did -- and to have escaped as far across the country as I did. If I had stayed, she'd still have her claws in me, and I would never have become my own person. As it is, it's fourteen years later, and I'm STILL recovering from the scars of being raised by an emotional vampire. (Just ask Angela.)

Yeah, my mom called this morning. She said about two sentences (the first, laying on large amounts of guilt; the second, reinforcing it) before I hung up on her.

Why do you ask? :)

Congratulations on your escape, including hanging up this morning.

Sorry you're going through that. Out of curiosity, does your sign-off when hanging up allude to any behaviors she might favorably pursue the *next* time she phones you?
