6 years ago, my daughter was moved 200 miles south by her mother. Her mother has a history of mental health issues. She is a narcissist with sociopathic tendancies. She goes through manic cycles. My daughter is now 11 and tells, me as she has in the past, that her mother will take anything clothing wise that was given to her by us or my family and sticks them in an out of the way area in the closet where she can't get to them. The only time my daughter gets to wear them is if she is coming up for a visit, then her mom will pack them or allow her to wear them in order to save face. She also tells me that she got in trouble for writing in her diary that she misses me and that her mother was being mean. So, the very person she is supposed to trust the most has violated her trust by going through her diary and punished her for her feelings. My daughter has told me on several occasions that she has to keep her emotions bottled up because if she expresses anything other than happiness, she is scolded and her feelings are dismissed. This is not healthy for her. I want her away from her mother. She is a very irrational toxic person.
