    My family are all in conflict. My mum used to be depressed and has lost a substantial amount of weight and is no longer 'depressed'. From this she has had a dramatic change in personality. She makes *****y remarks at me (More than a parent should) about my weight, calls me 'Selfish' and says she can't wait for me to go to uni. She also claims that I'm a freak and "Not right in the head". On school nights and nights where I have work, she brings home loud mouthed drunk people who constantly wake me and my siblings up.

    She's also constantly arguing with her sister and her mum. Whenever I'm with each of them, they whine about each other but I know if they argue to face then they will not talk for a long time (They already cut off our extended family)

    I just sit in my room everyday and I really don't know whether to get involved. It's quite making me upset. Among other things, but this is the main factor.

    It doesn't sound like your mum has gotten better, it just sounds like she's replaced one emotion with another. Is there anyone you could talk to? Any relatives or friends? I'm not sure how you should deal with her but I think it's important that you look out for yourself and your siblings. I imagine that it's affecting them too. Maybe you guys together could figure out a solution somehow. Good luck!
