Maybe you should call her on it. Sending a slightly modified text of what you just wrote may help you deal with your frustration. It probably won't change her personality, but it may set her back and she may reflect a bit and try harder for awhile...after the initial blowup and attempt to be a martyr about everything. Oops, I may be projecting a bit on the martyr complex. My mother was pretty good at that.

I don't care if it is a family member or it is the holiday season and you're supposed to turn the other cheek. Sometimes you keep turning your cheek until your head is spinning. Not healthy for you.
