HELP!!! I befriended someone (my child's friend's mother) last year. We became very close, doing lots of things together. (exercising, etc.) She began telling me I needed a life of my own without kids & husband & that my husband was controlling me, etc. She would always try & get me to meet her after work, etc. "to talk" This past year I have learned that she is very controlling of me, jealous of my other friends, very sensitive to my every move, calls me constantly, and is driving me crazy! She gets mad at me for not calling her, etc. I feel like a teenager in jr. high. I just recently e-mailed her & told her I couldn't take this emotional rollercoaster & wanted to end our friendship. She began crying uncontrollably, threatened suicide, etc. She has approached my husband angrily, and cannot seem to accept what I have told her. She acts DESPERATE!! I am afraid because I now know I'm not dealing with a rational person. She is not very content in her marriage, is always depressed, etc. What is happening??? I've NEVER experienced this kind of "friendship" or whatever it is. Can someone please help & tell me what to do!

Sad isn't it. But you did what you needed to do. If she continues to contact her, suggest she enter counseling or talk to her minister. If she still persists, just reaffirm stronger. its sad, but it will most likely effect the childrens relationship, but that might not be a bad thing, as typically if there are problems at home, the children act out, and your's doesn't need to learn any non-positive tricks.
