I have told them about their behavior on numerous occasions and we've had nasty fights as a result. They have made vile comments about me and I'm really just done with it and them.
 
I do not pay for their college education but for another member of the family.


Welp! You tried. Operation 3000% Done begins!

I agree with modelbusiness8 - cut them out of your life completely. It's the only way.
 
This person is clearly very jealous and resentful of you - probably started years ago when you were just kids - but has grown and grown over the years and that's why every other thing you say causes that over the top reaction.
 
You will absolutely never win in a such a situation. Best to cut her free and leave her to her fate ... or she will continue to hurt you.
 
I have had the same experience .. best thing I ever did was to get these people out of my life - for good. Confused
 
As a matter of fact - I had a good friend that was surrounded by family members that kept cutting her to bits. Yes, told her to cut off these people - but she loved them too much. It made her so sick though, stomach problems, extreme weight gain, loss of hair etc.. and finally .. she passed.
 
It was heart-breaking. DeadDeadDead The sad part is .. this same rotten family took poccession of all her money and her house which was considerable. Shocked 
  
If this person lives with you - give her a 30 written day notice to vacate. Period. No conversation.
It's your flippen house. Shocked

the person sounds bipolar and hung up on the past. avoid being around when they are...if that means staying away from until they go to bed etc..do it.

If I'm paying my money to live in the home, no way am I going to let someone else bully me in my own space.  Put her on ignore when she starts some foolishness and walk away. 

And seriously, if your mental health is threatened, then possibly you have to let the family member you are supporting take a semester break while you resettle somewhere else.

OP, your family member sounds annoying and hateful.

This is one of those situations where you really have to be comfortable in your own skin. By that, I mean that you have to change your mind since you can't change your location. You have to figure out a way to not let their words affect you. Like others have mentioned, do not be afraid to remove yourself from all forms of communication, and be COMFORTABLE and CONVICTED in doing so. Realize that the household may be tense for a while, but it is for your own good (and it really is already tense, so it's not like you're missing out on anything)

Tell them straight up, 'don't talk to me, and I will not talk to you. Ignore me, and I will ignore you', go to your room, turn on your favorite song, and don't give a single 'eff' afterwards.

If you can't escape your physical prison, free your mind so that you can cope. 

Oh, and lots of times people bring up a hurtful past because they see that you are progressing and doing good things, so they want to 'remind' you that 'you really ain't all that'. This is usually the case when you grow and develop, and they do not. You must be doing something right since this person is so hell-bent on hurting you and reminding you of how 'bad' you used to be.

Keep on keepin' on, OP. Good luck!
