Hello! I don't post often about personal life issues but I've been having an on-going issue for a few weeks now which is causing me anxiety. Long-story short my mother left growing up. She was around, then not around, then around, then not around. She has had some mental issues in the past. I am now in my 30s, haven't seen her in a few years, moved to another state for a teaching position. I also live with my boyfriend whom she's never met and doesn't know much about. She is now calling, texting, voice mailing nonstop. I'll be at work, in bed, at the movies, eating dinner, busy, etc. and she still is calling just to "talk" but it's getting ridiculous now. I want to keep my life down here separate from her since mentally she's had issues in the past that I don't want to trickle over into my adult-life. I also don't want my bf around it. I do talk with my dad and love him to pieces. He told me to just respond back to her via text and let her know I'm busy or working - but that doesn't work. It's almost like she demands I call her because she fears I'm not safe or that I've been captured if I don't call her back. This is where her mental state comes in to play. She fears I'm not okay if I don't call her back. But I'm an adult and I just feel she has no right to be this invasive at this point in my life. We don't even have a relationship. Thoughts are welcomed.
