Having been a target of one of her episodes in 2004 myself, I went at great,
exhaustive length to explain her obvious and serious condition of codependence
to her using a series of many small and simple arguments building up to my
notion of her problem.
This was only met at first with more insults and aggression, and once she
learned that I would not budge from my position, subsequently was met with utter
silence. I think I got lucky, considering all that has happened since.
I believe that she is in dire need of professional help.

One of her methods to involve people into playing along to her mind games and
hence feed the requirements of her condition is the declaration of false
statements as to force people to react.
Another is to provide unsolicited "help" so that people receiving it would
"thank her later" for it.
