Your time is committed without consulting you, and opinions purported to be yours are expressed for you. She keeps tabs on your bodily functions and humiliates you by divulging the information she gleans, especially when it can be used to demonstrate her devotion and highlight her martyrdom to your needs ("Mike had that problem with frequent urination too, only his was much worse.

The golden child has to be cared for assiduously by everyone in the family. This creates divisions between the children, one of whom has a large investment in the mother being wise and wonderful, and the other(s) who hate her.
The scapegoat has no needs and instead gets to do the caring. That division will be fostered by the narcissist with lies and with blatantly unfair and favoritizing behavior.
The golden child will defend the mother and indirectly perpetuate the abuse by finding reasons to blame the scapegoat for the mother's actions. Your accomplishments are acknowledged only to the extent that she can take credit for them.
