Counseling would be an excellent idea for you... You need to set limits for yourself on what you will and will not tolerate and if she can't respect those limits... you need to limit your exposure to her.

'I' would not hesitate to cut a person like that out of my life. My mother, on the other hand, puts up w/ all sorts of emotional abuse from her mother (who is now in her 90's and senile) and older sister.... as HER daughter... it drives me absolutely bonkers what kind of abuse she will tolerate out of 'family loyalty'.
