Our expert says:
If someone keeps trying to send you on guilt trips, refuse the invitation and don't board the vehicle ! Refuse to make any attempt to serve as a marriage counsellor, and simply keep onm urging her to contact FAMSA and get herself a trained counsellor. Seeing a CBT-type counsellor for yourself might be a good idea, to help to boost your self-esteem and self-confidence.
And if she is hounding you by cellphone, change yourt number and don't give her the new one. EVen if you use your number for work you should be able to change it --- or block her number so she can't call you. Tell her you can still contact her when you need to do so, but you canot endure the unhelpful pressures she is pressing upon you.
If she tries that old trick of whining that you don't care for her, remind her that it is entirely HER behavior that has driven away other family members, and that it will drive you away, too. She needs to see a counsellor and become someone worth caring for, and not so painful to be around.
It doesn't mater at akll what she has been through in her life ( that she can deal with, with her own counsellor ) but she is not entitled to try to make your life equally miserable.
