If your mother is already seeing a doctor for depression, it's very difficult for you to approach her problems from a mental-health perspective: an authority on the matter is already giving her what he or she believes that she needs.

Perhaps she would consent to your having a meeting with the doctor, with or without her present. You could tell the doctor what you see is going on with her, and get direct insight into the doctor's character and also what her condition is.

What else can you do?

Everybody is hurtful more or less, though some people stop trying and just become toxic. Your mother may believe that she is entitled to do this because she provided everything for you when you were little.

Loving people (not just romantic love) hurts yourself. After a time, no matter how good somebody is, they will do something bad to you. And some people do that all the time... it was good for you to move away.

If you really want to keep on giving and giving to your mother, that's a good thing, but it's gonna suck. Also, you may be obligated to do at least a little if she doesn't have any other support.

Burdens like this are really hard on people. Take some time to learn about boundaries and caretaker stress. You could even begin reading the books and articles intended for people with bipolar family members whether or not your mother already has a diagnosis of bipolar.

Also, if you are religious, look into your religious institution for support. They have dealt with people for generations and have special insight.
