I Love Her...but

In reality I do love my mother in law, but she is all over the place.  She will be great one time I talk with her and in a deep depression the next time.  She has so many mood swings that it is hard to deal with her sometimes.

Yet, I want to help her.  I am afraid that one day she will need to move in with us.  I know it will be the right thing to do, but it will be a huge challenge also.

Darn, that sounds like my supervisor and I think she is getting or has alzheimer''s crazy, the sad part about it, she is in denial. She say's ther is nothing wrong with her memory or her...crazy!

My MIL is in denial about anything also!

Thanks for the advice, I really do appreciate it!!<br />
<br />
I also really hope it never comes to it either!!

Hey, to be honest, although I don't agree with you, I appreciate what you are saying and your bluntness. I also know much of what you are saying it true. <br />
<br />
It is not a light decision and it will be hard, but still think it is the right one.<br />
<br />
Thanks again!

So, Tell me, how do you really feel?<br />
<br />
First of all, I am the dude, not the babe!<br />
<br />
Second, I understand what you are saying, it will be hard, it will be a pain, I have lived through it, my mom's mom lived with us when I was growing up. I saw everything you are talking about, it is a pain.<br />
<br />
However, it is also the most loving option. I would rather err on the side of love than of making my life a little easier!
