Thank you Patricia for sharing this! I'm sorry that you had a family like this, so did I, I almost highlighted the whole article! I had a mother so narcissitic and violent with words, phisically with my sibblings growing up 5I was the youngest) that I didn't wanted to bother her at the age of 5 years old when I cut myself very deeply, or my first bra I went to buy it by myself... Please keep up with your good work, personally and on Medium : )
