During my husbands death,5 years ago, my daughter became "close" to his family during his illness and the funeral arrangements. He had been labeled a full blown narcissist by two different Pychotherapists and MMPIs years apart on 2 separate occasions. His brother was a sociopath and was in and out of prison, his sisters are the perfect co-dependants. Our divorce was bitter, as expected, and many,many lies were told about me during this period. My daughter joined right in and "threw me under the bus" right along with them. I just recently received a nasty specific note from one of his sisters telling me this, although I had suspected that my daughter had done this. Once she became aware of the fact that I knew about it, she has had no contact, and frankly, I'm not feeling like talking to her. She was a troubled child and teen-ager that I would describe as "histronic". Is it poosible to have a relationship with her knowing that she is an ungrateful "backstabber" who has done this before and will probably do it again. I have another child who hates his father for the grief he has caused us and we get along fine. These "children" are 49 and 51.
Thank you, Lazliz
