*she wanted her daughter to come to valentines day dinner with us...i said no-my gf asked again valentines day
*accused of cheating-said she wouldnt do it cos it hurts others-she cheated on her daughters dad as he couldnt provide the one thing she needed-love
*said to me *i hurt others b4 they hurt me*

Hi malshow - Welcome to the forum. There has been a lot going on in your home that must be really confusing and all at the same time as losing your mom and grieving her loss. I am so sorry for your loss and the difficulties you are having in your relationship with your GF and her daughter.

I am a bit confused... are you still living with them, and if so, do you think this living environment is one you can handle for much longer?

I want to point you toward some help - the toolbox at the resource tabs above has some great strategies that you can use as you face these behaviors that are upsetting. Also, the Personality Disorders drop down menu has a list of the most common traits and with each trait there is a do and don't section that could be immediate help for you.

Putting your son first and being there for him as you coach is an important focus for you in the midst of all of this chaos. My hope is that he has not suffered or been subjected to some of the damaging behaviors that are going on in this house and that you have been able to keep him away from all of this. Some good info from our resources about putting children 1st is found here:

It is clear that your GF and her daughter are both struggling and my guess is that the issues began long before you entered their lives. Staying focused on your own health, working through the loss of your mom, being a secure and steady dad for your own son may help you figure out how and if you want to continue on in this relationship.

Take some time to look through the forum boards - of particular help may be reading some of the posts on the Committed to Working on it and Chosen board. You will get an idea of what a long term relationship with a potentially BPD person is really like. I don't know if your GF is officially diagnosed with BPD or not, but either way we have a saying around here that has been a real help to me that goes like this: You didn't cause it, your can't cure it, and you can't control it. (The 3C's Rule)

Good luck with this and again, welcome!
