Here's a little more info for you to consider when thinking about your mother and her behavior:
"Some children of alcoholics may act like responsible "parents" within the family and among friends. They may cope with the alcoholism by becoming controlled, successful "overachievers" throughout school, and at the same time be emotionally isolated from other children and teachers. Their emotional problems may show only when they become adults."
She is a walking timebomb.............or a hidden landmine..............she seems normal until you know her, and then she becomes the most dangerous, because you have become accustomed to her odd behavior and accept it as normal. Then, she has a meltdown and throws you out.
