My mother is insane

Your Question

My mother is absolutely insane and is extremely autistic. She blames me for everything she does and is trying to book a doctors appointment for me when the whole family is brainwashed by her insane self. What do I do?



Thank you so much for getting in touch with Ask Alex with what is going on for you within your family. 

It sounds like things are quite tough for you at the moment between you and your mother. You have said she is insane and blames you for everything. It also sounds like you feel she is trying to brainwash everyone, we wonder what you mean by this? As you have said she is trying to get you a doctors appointment it does sound like she does care for you deeply and wants you to be well. 

Everyone has the right to the support hey need and going to the doctor may help improve your relationship with your mother also. It may provide the opportunity to discuss with someone outside of the family how things are for you and your mother. You may find this article from our website helpful:
