I was pretty low-contact with my narc mother for about a decade. Unfortunately, she'd pull stunts regularly, blindsiding me with something otherwise avoidable (had she left it alone) and expensive that I had to deal with (because she made a point to make sure everything went to me as part of her financial abuse) or she's harass and push to get me to deal with whatever mess she created. Ultimately, had to go no contact because she never respected boundaries, or my needs, and her abuse just continued to get worse. It was like the older and slower and less sharp she got, the meaner and more demanding she was.
