This is the absolute last thing I will post that I know may again seem like I am blindly defending my parents.
Please remeber that all humans and animals are hard wired to defend themselves. Even without any real justification, one who feels under "attack" will automatically put up some type of defense, no matter how futile or even if it is the wrong thing to do.
So if it seems to some like they are struggling to hang on to some sense of dignity where you feel they have none, try to see it from another perspective. They are flawed people, yes they have a lot of re-wiring to do. They know that and we all know it.
They and we are all on the long road of recovering, some further along than others. But none will continue this route sucessfully without support. I hope on some level we have found some here.
