(for the BPD mom who is the Queen type (narcissist):

Dear Mom,

To the queen who has everything ...

What could I possibly give you that you don't already have on your special day?
My narc. dad has you set for life, while I struggle year to year knowing where I'll have a place to live.
It seems fair that I give you nothing, considering that daddy has promised me to expect zero as an inheritance.

But then again, I'm underemployed as usual with my C-PTSD & all, so even if I wanted to I could not give you more than this dollar store card.  :applause:
All I have left to give you is my broken heart,
Love,
Your scapegoat covertly narcissistically psychologically abused toy-doll adult daughter

I have been following this post since it was posted, and it has been super funny and also filled with a lot of pain. My heart goes out to you guys.

I was actually buying my BPDm's card yesterday and thought of all of you as I kept reading and putting them back, reading and putting them back, reading and putting them back. I finally found a generic one.

BUT----

I found a super funny one too that I had to come and share with you.

On the front it says, "My therapist says it's not all your fault, mom."

on the inside it says, "Dad screwed me up a bunch too."

I laughed so hard. I put it back. but I did photograph it to laugh about later.

If anyone has the guts to buy one like this, they are at Target!!!! hahaha

I figured I would sign it, "But it was still pretty much mostly you mom."

I kept reading and putting them back, reading and putting them back, reading and putting them back. I finally found a generic one.

Now that is a truly accurate explanation of what I go through when selecting cards for either of them!
Thank God for the 10% of cards that are useable because they're generic or blank!  ;D

Can someone please make these into reality? With lots of flowers and fancy script?

"Mom -- thanks for teaching me how not to treat people."

"Mom -- you gave birth to me. Thanks for that."
