    do you have family that is crazy ?

    I have now concluded my mom is a pathological liar and someone who always has to create problems for no reason. I am no shrink, but she is crazy.

    Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close knit family - in another city. George Burns

    I like his perspective. In the whole extended family, it goes from one extreme to the other. I left home as quick as I could, at 17, and that still seems like it was one of my better moves.

    It took me a while to realize 'mother nature' is always used describing an event of cataclysmic destruction.

    I have a soon-to-be ex sister in law like that. Abusive, very fluid concept of what "truth" is, and generally bat-crap insane.

    The rest of us are "relatively" normal.

    Looking at my family, I am fairly sure I'm adopted because I'm the only normal one. They put the fun is dysfunctional.

    I'm probably the weird one, but in a fairly normal way: I detest a lie and if I sniff one I am on it like a terrier after a rat until I have obtained contrition or hatred. So far it's about 387547474939:1; people seem to have a hard time admitting they've been lying to themselves.

    I attribute this to my maternal grandmother's side of the family, and her uncle Dynamite Ollie who was too fond of large noises. I also am irredeemably in love with a woman who is mentally ill, with Bipolar II Syndrome. She gets me, so what am I gonna do? Quit because it's hard? That doesn't say much about me, does it?

    I was a psychology major in college. I wrote a term paper about my mother, who suffers from OCPD with a sub-type of hoarding, and refuses all attempts at treatment. My professor thought I should have the paper published as a case study.

    Not only is my mom crazy, she is/was a psych nurse for 35 years. WOW, do us 3 boys have some stories.

    We later realized that crazy crisis is a way of rallying the kids around mom. Even if there is no need for a crisis.

    I am the crazy one. We are all screwed up in one way or another, some just more than others.
