I agree. You need to take the right steps to take care of you. Honestly, she should be grateful that you want to better yourself.

Try approaching the subject in a different way. When you tell her it will improve your life, she gets very defensive. Instead, mention exactly what struggles may improve. Things she notices and may have mentioned.
