OMG, it feels good to run into someone with a familiarity with what it was like for me growing up. I am the daughter of two seriously mentally ill parents who were fundamentalist Mormons until I was six, and then they were "home church" for many years before my mother pursued a dozen more fundamentalist religions after my father left.

At any rate, your story sounds so much like mine. It just feels good to hear it.
