I can cope in other areas of my life. Everything that has happened to me, including the death of my father and also being made redundant last year, I have managed to get over it and get on with my life. But with her, constantly there trying to drive a wedge through our marriage and split us up it’s making me ill.
My mother in law hates me. I am sure of this.
I am probably overreacting to a lot of stuff, that should go over my head - like her irritating habit of interupting me before I've finished talking and telling me what I should do all the time, like a 2 year old who can't put on their shoes. These aren’t crisis, yet somehow manage to irritate, annoy and aggravate me every time I think of her. Things I can’t get over because they are in my face time after time.
Like the fact that have the misfortune to share the same birthday as his ex, who she is still friends with, and she thinks they should never have split up. And her constant bloody phone calls, trying to get his attention for some trivial matter, or little jobs, like changing light bulbs.
The constant negative emotion about my mother in law is making me ill, but she’s in our life and I can’t see her leaving us alone any time soon.
