The Barbarian and her Blame shifting



Something my sister wrote in comment of one of my posts has had me doing a lot of thinking. About how my mother shifts the blame for her criminal exploits onto my sister because the guy she ran amok followed my sister home.  This is it right here.

After thinking about it, I really think that Bill introduced himself to me because he'd heard in the neighborhood what a wild mother we had. I don't think it was by accident that a 21 year old says "hi" to a 15 year old who looks like a child. I had only talked to him twice and he wanted to go to my house and meet my mother. Duh! As soon as she saw him, they were Bonnie and Clyde.

Bill was the guy that pulled the trigger and killed the guy outside the house. They met up in Kansas City and the deal went down in Dallas, but what she said really got me thinking. 
My mother was a magnet for other crazy people and even in a new town it didn't take long for the word to get out that there was a new psycho bitch in town.
To me or you some crazy person would best be avoided. But as birds of a feather flock together, so do nut bags.
I really just posted this so I can use this art work from a series called homicidal maniac. It's just like her and her blame shifting ways to not even cop to soiling her own knickers.

I bet if you had a Pharmacy in your small town she didn't fill her scripts THERE.
And don't tell ME she didn't pick up a few along the way!

She told me a story years ago about a guy who had the hoobie goobie's and he told his wife he picked it up from a toilet seat and she bought it and even took a full round of anti-biotics to get rid of it.
Could be her and husband of Barbarian.
Who knows.
Listening to that crazy lying bitch and try to decipher what the real truth is, is impossible.
If she had been Sigmund Freud's first patient no one would have ever heard of him.
He would have either snuffed it or changed his line of work and started selling used cars.

I'm gonna get flamed for saying this but I do respect Freud for his contributions which were heavily influenced by his time and place. But I also believe he engaged in some rather......inappropriate relationships with his female clients. And clearly didn't like women very much at all. IMO, he was a "Used Car Salesman" workin' it in a burgeoning "Profession."
Nope, the truth will NEVER be known. Hell, with the sheer VOLUME of antics I wonder if The Barbarian can even keep track of all of them-not that she'd even admit to ANY. I know there's stuff I'll take to my death without disclosing to anyone if for no other reason than it would destroy lives. (I was not directly involved in them in any capacity other than the disclosures were made to me in confidence.) And speaking directly of my own experiences to those closest to me in detail would be horribly painful for them in any event. I've been accused of being "secretive" when the reality is I'm private and I don't find any joy in inflicting irreparable harm on others simply because I can.
That doesn't mean I haven't engaged in my fair share of cringe-worthy behavior. Or engaged in all kinds of atrocities-in my mind!

For what Freud had to work with he did pretty well.
I don't take any joy in lashing out at the Barbarian.
But I have to vent somewhere for her well being as much as mine.
It's not fair for them to exist happily in their solipsism while we must face reality and make the best of the distortions their fantasy projects over us that are somewhat normal.

I agree. I've shared more with you all and in far more detail about Psychobitch than I have IRL to anyone except my dearest friend of 30+yrs., Rita and George had a good "picture."
Of course, Psychobitch ramped up as soon as he died. (He never met her; I was N before we married.) No surprise there.

Of all the ways I could follow your comment, let me just ask you this. Wouldn't it be nice to have had a normal parent and not have to spend hours commiserating with others to remain sane and not go and whack the source of your frustration?
Is that too much to ask?
Clearly it is!

(sigh. Apparently I left off the "C" after the "N" up there.)
Oh yeah. But in other ways it's been so great to find others in the same type of situation-one of the wonderful benefits of technology. (Which we finally got up here.) I can't tell you how much it's meant to me.
Let's face it, this isn't exactly "light conversation." And most people don't get it at all. I've found over the years even when people were attempting to be "helpful" their comments were worse than if they'd just shut up and listened. So I shut up instead.
I don't think the "Professionals" get it either. Worse yet, they THINK they do which causes even MORE disgust for me. I'm not gonna pay some "Professional" to poke and probe at a single traumatic event (the assault) which is essentially a non-issue and has been for YEARS now while ignoring the day-in, day-out overwhelming SHIT of daily life growing up with these freaks and continuing to grapple with them/the Legacy in adult life. That's IMO faaaar more traumatic. They are clueless, IMO. And the self-promoters of these "Self-Help" books which now overwhelm the market are making big bucks with their blather and platitudes.
We've turned into an "industry," apparently. I do believe over all, we do a better job helping one another than they do.
