I strongly suspect that my mother's side of the family

Customer Question

I strongly suspect that my mother's side of the family including her my grandmother, aunt and brother showed narcississtic tendencies. I am much more like my father.
After caring for both parents and my father's sister for years, now they are in a care home. This is alright though I suspect some of the management have similar issues.
My brother and sister-in-law have tormented me covertly and openly through smear campaigns for years. They want my parents' property for their own children. My brother appears to be getting more and more aggressive towards me. I try to avoid him as much as possible. He is permanently hounding me over my parents' property.
It has taken me months and months to recover to the point of feeling that I can take charge of my life. I have suffered from long-term M.E. and acute stress. My mother was horrific with me when I left to go to university and my hair fell. The problem is that nobody believes you including the doctors. I feel that I have been labelled. Thank you. Angela
