> Isn't she SCARILY INTOLERANT??? Mine has a strong EIGHT component - which had a terrible effect on me.....How do you cope with yours??

She can be sort of intolerant, and very critical and controlling. I guess I just learned to cope by humoring her, while never actually capitulating or following her plans for me. It was harder when I was a teenager, and she can still really effect my self-esteem, but I've sort of learned not to take too seriously the things she does. I know she has my best interests at heart, however weirdly that's expressed. Of course, maybe it also helps that I now live eight hours away. :)
