My mom had a breakdown again. It was smaller compared to last time, but I still had an emotional reaction. I told her not to yell at me and raised my voice. I was more reactive than I would have liked. I wish I didn't get triggered so much, but she immediately goes to worst case scenarios and blows things out of proportion. This issue was regarding housing and how my brother couldn't help her with something, she immediately thought she would be homeless if she didn't turn it in. She has an undiagnosed mental illness and its hard to talk sense since life has been a struggle. I need to just be firm, give her facts and not be reactive. I almost cried talking to her. Again, did not think our call would get me triggered. Ugh, so much healing I need to do around my family. I wish my brother would just help her, but I get he's really tired and triggered, too.
