Thanks for what's probably a complement ! On a bad day, even I would hesitate to mess with me ; not that that has ever stopped some fools from trying !
Sounds like there's a bit of progress being made on your side. Among other things, you've used a technique I've often found useful, in asking her how SHE would deal with someone who behaved towards her, as she behaves towards you. Sometimes it helps such a person to at least glimpse your point of view, or at least to stop seeing only their own.
Stop feeling guilty. Or, if you refuse to do that, start blaming yourself for Brexit, Trump, Eskom, and the awful situation in Somalia. If you insist on being megalomanically guilty, make a thorough job of it !
I hope she doesn't choose to harm herself, though selfish suicide attempts in order to hurt others by hurting oneself, are not unknown. Let her know that you will refuse all invitations to blame yourself for the situation she has created for herself, however such invitations are delivered.
