Suddenly my mother-in-law turned very malicious, and now my son is 8 years old, and I’m fed up with her untrue snide remarks, unasked for advice and downright rude behavior when she visits like screaming at me, of course only when her son isn’t present. I feel I should confront her with my husband when these things come up, of course with the preamble, “Mama, I know that you are trying to help.

It may be something I end up doing after a few cycles, but right now is not something I’m overly concerned with.
I guess that brings me to my question, is there a place for people who are just kinda letting things happen? I, personally, feel guilty? Another question and small rant. How do you deal with people constantly harping on you to start making babies?

Originally Posted by newerabuzz devaluation of someone is not the same as ‘gas-lighting’- almost all current clinical research on BPD shows no ‘gas lighting’ its almost a total manifestation of the NPD patient.

Borderlines can rage, be very nasty, and manipulate- but the reasons are far more benign then a narcissist. Borderlines do not have the severe need to control, dominate and appear superior then others. I fear rejection, abandonment and personal humiliation. Borderlines are not ‘aggressive personalities’ we tend to be targets of narcissists and psychopaths- I was. Was it ‘gas lighting’? Not in the true sense- but it was very sophisticated. When they realized that their goals in me could not be realized- they began the heartbreaking devaluing process- also very subtle- then discard.
Borderlines do this as well, but its more rash, with anger and rage- another words it obvious, not subliminal. The good thing now is that all the ‘poison’ I had injected into me by the NPD has come home to haunt him. How did I win? By not playing the ‘game’ and ignoring him- that’s like death to a narcissist.
