Family keeping adult children dependent on them??

I know a family that seems very loving but none of the adult kids have ever moved out or worked. They’re almost 40. The mother is not abusive, she’s intrusive. Constant unsolicited advise, calling/texting all the time, paying for the children’s cars, insurance and phone bills. No one in this family ever mentions having a problem with the dependence of their adult children so I have to assume the parents like it. She cooks dinner ...

self injury for attention

My SO has HPD. I told her on Thursday that I was done and going NC. On Friday morning, she turned up at my doorstep with a serious knee injury, having taken a fall (she does tend to fall a lot because of another non-related issue with her vision. After a few minutes talking, she suddenly said, "I know you think I probably did this on purpose", although I hadn't thought it at all until ...

Help with Wife who's mother has BPD

Hi Everyone,

I have a challenge that I need to solve. My mother-in-law was diagnosed with BPD about 1 year ago after she convinced my wife to hand over a large sum of money and lie for the last 20+ years about having medical issues. When I met my wife, I had a feeling that my mother-in-law had issues but my wife always believed her mother. I confronted the situation a year ago which in ...

Delusional Disorder

My girlfriend and myself sometimes have disagreements which is normal for most couples. She will be grumpy and withdrawn after such an incident. The problem is that her withdrawal may last a week or so or at times even a few months. When she is in this state (I call it the WALL), no actions from me seem to work. If I maintain a withdrawn attitude similar to hers, it increases the degree of her ...

The problem is that her withdrawal may last a week or so or at times even a few months. This is extremely debilitating to the relationship and has a huge ...

Confused about friend's anger

First, hello. New here. I hope this is the right place. Mostly need to get this off my chest, and maybe one or two of you have dealt with something similar?

I have a friend (also is a coworker) I'm having a tough time with recently. If it's important, he's mid-40s. The anger started showing back in June, and I've seen it a couple other times (it's been directed at me). First was when I ...
