Alexa, play "Don't Go" by Yazoo

Today, my mother broke into my emails and rejected the best job offer I’ve ever had, all because the job is on the other side of the country, and she’s a selfish bitch who doesn't want to be left completely alone, since she has no friends and our relatives don’t speak to her anymore. FML

(1) Change all passwords do not let Mom know any of them. Do not use something she will guess like your birthday or middle name or a variation on your previous password. Do not access them in front of Mom. One good one that you can remember is better than a bunch of different passwords you have to write down.

(2) Call the company and explain that Mom has dementia (she has her lucid days and her bad days), and is going to be institutionalized and did not represent your feelings. Hiring an employee who has a mom with dementia is more likely to pass the smell test than one who is controlled by a possessive Mom from hell.

(3) Get the hell out of there and don’t look back. It is utterly unacceptable for Mom to sabotage your career just so she has one last person to cling to. Pay no attention to her attempts to emotionally blackmail you. If she has her way she’s going to prevent your career and will likely chase off anyone you love. She deserves the hell she has made for herself by driving off everyone else who would be close to her. It’s lifeboat ethics - You have to save yourself while you can be saved. “Mommy Dearest” may be past saving.

Totally agree, and I'd add to use two steps authentication whenever possible, so even if she managed to guess a password, she'd have to get a text/email or even better input a code that you can only get from an app like Authy.

1 why's your mom have your password 2 anyone would be afraid of being completely alone.

despite how she acts she likely feels her loneliness and it's an extremely unpleasant feeling. fyl for sure but if you can find it in yourself I recommend getting your mom some help, in the long run you'll both be better off.
