    I hate my mother in law.

    She is mentally ill and her children (who are wonderful) are codependent towards her. She is mean to everybody, but claims that it is out of love for everyone. You see, she actually believes that she´s right ABOUT EVERYTHING and that she is ALWAYS the victim. For example, if...

    Recent events demand a new perspective to my

    experience with my mil. Everything we lived through with her somehow settled into familiar reactions from her, but with our changed approach, which was needed to remain sane. Still, it seems that a final drop was needed. This final drop fell on my husband. Being happy that I do...

    Update: After going no contact

    for over a year, now mil wants me to include her in my life. I lived with her for two years, and she made my life a living hell. She psychologically abused me, and I was on the verge of separating from my husband at that time. It's funny how things have turned out, two years ago...

    Jealousy. So many of our MIL's seem to suffer

    from it. If you have ever lived in a rural setting you know that tools get lost no matter how careful you are. Oddly I had my sockets setting on an upturned stock tank when a huge raven landed, snagged my 5/8 and flew off. Frantic digging revealed that was my only one now...
