She told me I was mental & had made my son like this. But because we are estranged from my family - due to their awful treatment of me & my son & because they are the main reason my son tried to take his life, I've had to keep away from them. She will have said this to other members of the family, but I won't know that because of us keeping away from them, so I can't say.
She very vindictive & I'm worried if she continues to say these awful things, they could affect my job.
Does this count as slander??
