An excellent link on the top ten reasons why adult daughters stay connected to toxic mothers

http://toxicmomtoolkit.com/2012/09/04/ten-reasons-adult-daughters-stay-connected-to-toxic-mothers/

I think 7 of the 10 apply to me.

It was number 10 that finally spurned me to action. My HP kept saying things like, I bet you don't talk to your friends this way and complaining about the way I treated her. I was talking to her in the way I would talk to other logical adults. And I realized I wouldn't let anyone else in teh world let treat me the way she treated me, why should I accept that from her just because she was my mother.
