Hi Graces, I find it interesting that your mom expects you to forget/forgive her past behavior yet calls you selfish for being sick. It does seem that she is in some way trying to manipulate either you or the situation at hand for whatever reason.
If you strongly feel that she needs mental intervention and she wont go on her own then perhaps you need to get with your sisters and try to form a plan on what to do. She certianly doesnt sound like she is mentally stable and though this is not an excuse for her behavior it can certianly explain a lot. Also, if you do think she is a danger to herself or others you can call the police and have her committed even if it is just for a short period of time (usually 24-48 hrs depending on the state). Most especially if she has a prior history of harming herself.
Even though you have depression and are dealing with a lot of stress, it sounds as if you have risen above all of that and really made something good and stable out of your life with your husband. Dont let anything come inbetween that and take that apart for you. You have a strong will and strong mind...I am sure you can stand up to her and not be controlled by her erratic behaviors.
Please do post again and let us know how things go.
