Sorry that I mentioned your seeing a physician in the emergency room at the hospital, but you did say you were sure you had a concussion, and that could have been dangerous.
How can a family group who have members who are all making six-figure salaries not be more aware of the problems of your mother and still support the thinking that is going on in the home? You would think that the educational level of people who are capable of making hundreds of thousands annually would have taught them something about
people and at least to have compassion for others, especially another family member who must struggle to get her education. Why would you have to need loans to get through school? With incomes as high as those of your family, there should be more than enough to see to it that you get a good education; and they certainly should recognize that not everyone is gong to want the same or comparable job in life. There are things here that just don't make sense. I understand that they disapprove of your choice of career fields, but that doesn't explain the unwillingness of at least one of them to have compassion for you and to offer assistance. Was your mother's influence that devastating to the children? And if so, how are your siblings able to sustain careers with those attitudes that enable them to have high income levels? You usually think that people who are intelligent and able to have careers like that are at least aware of social needs and have knowledge of the world, at least enough to know that social exclusion is not a high level of psychological functioning which makes earning a high salary inconsistent and unsustainable. Something is wrong with this whole situation.
You would think that someone in your family would have insisted that your mother get the psychiatric help she needed years ago to correct a serious self-image she has, not to mention the tyrannical nature--which is a tragedy.
This case is a really puzzling one. I hope you find strength to be
open and fair with your own life and seek help to overcome the effects of what's happening in the family.
