I think you might have actually picked up on how to deal with her. Her conduct is that of someone who is much younger then what she must be. Seriously she is flipping out over a 2 dollar box of toaster strudels? She need to get a grip about
what is important in life. I do suggest that you disengage from her. Do not ask her questions. Ask your mother, after all she is the one who is your caregiver. You are out of there in a couple months, and you have made it 8 years. You know that you can do this.
But I am real clear that it is easy to say and very difficult to do. But you have a light at the end of the tunnel. I think it is understandable about
how you feel, but do you think violence is going to help you or hurt you? Or would disengaging from her be a much more effective way to tell her how you think her conduct is out of line? You can be real clear that you do not accept her disrespectful behavior, without even saying a word.
Try not to put your mother in a position where she has to be choosing between you and her. Because to your mother you are leaving her, and that might hurt more then being treated badly at this moment.
You are in the process of declaring a standard of acceptable treatment for yourself, who knows she might just follow you?
