    You Wouldn't Believe Even If You Lived It

    I will try to summarize a two and half year hell. My MIL has borderline personality disorder, but doesn't even know it. I have been married two years, am middled aged, no children, and unfortunately, married my MIL's only child. She comes off completely sane, and by now, I am the...

    Well, my husband's biological father (willfully

    absentee for most of his childhood and adult life, until only about 3 years ago) has lung cancer and they don't think he has more than a year left. But he's sweet, quiet, friendly, non-confrontational, even though he's a bit of an alcoholic. -- My husband's uncle has emphysema...

    If you can avoid living with your inlaws,

    please! Never ever live with them. Maybe at the begging sounded like a good idea to save money or just because you can't afford renting a place because your husband is finishing collage; like in my case. At first, when I moved to this country, they convinced me saying that I...

    The word "hate" is a bit strong,

    but I seriously despise their complete lack of care for their son. I mean, they created him, how can they ignore him and basically abandon him? His mother had him at 14 and his great grandparents raised him. They raised him wonderfully. I never had the pleasure of meeting his...
