    Oh I thought you were talking about actual psychosis. I dunno. Maybe try not using a serious symptom of mental illness as a derogatory term for your mum? :dontknow:

    When I say controlling, I don't say it lightly. She has issues.

    Potential narcissism isn't the same as psychosis. Psychosis is an entirely different thing.

    Look up "narcissistic mothers" - you might see it rings true to your mothers behaviour. Also the subreddit called raisedbynarcissists might be of help to you in feeling less alone.

    And re: advice? If she truly is as controlling as you say she is, then when you're able to, get far away. Narcissistic parents are toxic.
