Baby Talk

Posted on Tue, Oct. 10, 2017 at 05:25 pm

MIL, So sick of your baby talk with your sons including my DH
for 40 years. Holier than thou old bag, always have to be the center of attention.
Your chance is coming
You, 90 years old with a bib
strapped into a chair
being fed pablum,
drooling, wearing a diaper
Now you can talk baby talk, go for it! and your son can change your poopy diapers

They did it again.

Posted on Tue, Oct. 10, 2017 at 01:27 pm

They did it again. No birthday wishes or cheap dollar store birthday cards from DH's so called family again. And you wonder why he stopped having anything to do with any of you. It not only pisses me off but makes me very sad at the same time. Whenever you needed something built or fixed or installed he was there. I didn't see anyone else of the so called men in his so called family volunteer! I know you will call again when you want something, and he better say no! Because he doesn't deserve to be treated like SHIT, like all of you treat him {and me}.

I like how you whisper about me behind my back, but do it just loudly enough for me to hear how "antisocial" you think I am, and how great your other sons new girlfriend is. It's all bullsh!t and I am over it. I cried when we got home and hubby said to me, "nothing or no one else matters except you and me, and I will always feel that way". If you are trying to drive a wedge between you and your son, well congratulations because you are doing a great job at accomplishing this


Your "antisocial" daughter in law xoxo

My evil MIL

Posted on Tue, Oct. 10, 2017 at 11:50 am

My MIL is just a cunning old folk. She acts like she is a naive old woman in front of everyone for e.g., acting that she doesn't know how to solve some simple problems (yet her mind keep spinning to think how to take advantage from us). She wants a full control of our lives. She knows the GPS of every single things in our room (can you stop doing that you creepy old lady). She doesn't want me to live happier than her (when I was on my confinement, she stopped her son to buy those supplements which are good for mummy. She told him that's not necessary. She never let me rest well during
confinement. My baby, her grandson was sleeping, she open our room door loudly then of course a new born get frighten and starting to cry, you know what?! She just shut the door and walk away. Left me and my crying son. This happened MANY times. My confinement was just a nightmare and a total disaster. I'm having backache and soreness now mainly is coz never rest well during confinement). She showing grumpy face when she sees her son treating me well. She treats her another son so well aka bias yet my BIL is not filial at all. Hi MIL, one day when my son get married, got his own family, I would be very happy for him and till then, that's time to let go my responsibility as a guidance. I would feel relieve to see them bcm a grown up and I will try to accomplish my undone dreams / goals. Anyway fyi, I'm pregnant again. I will not get bullied by you like the last time. Watch out evil witch!

I hate my low class in laws!!

Posted on Tue, Oct. 10, 2017 at 10:18 am

My in laws are retired now, although MIL has never worked a day in her life. They have nothing going for them, no friends, no money, nothing!! They live in a house that we own and pay us about half the market rent. Their day consists of watching back to back movies and smoking like chimneys. They have not saved at all for retirement so there will come a time when they will ha e to live with us or at Lyle very least we will need to pay for everything. I fully expect that we will be paying for their funerals.
They have never once invited me/us for a meal at their home, except for Christmas dinner. If I go over to do maintenance on the house that they live in, I’m offered a cup of tea or coffee and nothing more... even if I’ve been there all day and have not eaten a thing. They have not once acknowledged my birthday.
The thing that boils my blood is that my husband treats them like kids!! He’s the parent and they are the kids!! God forbid I open my mouth and complain about them... he is so defensive and will jump down my throat!! He can complain all he wants about my family but when it’s my turn to point things out, he goes on the attack.
I have had to spend every single Christmas with them for the past 13 years. They come over Christmas Eve and don’t leave until Boxing Day. I hate it!!!! I told my husband I want one Christmas with just my kids and him but he says “I can’t cut them off now”. “There’s nothing I can do”. What about my family?!?!?!?! They come over, watch tv and smoke, while we run ragged with Christmas dinner and gifts. They don’t play with the kids and they have nothing to talk about. They are borIng, small minded, conservative, uninteresting, low class, poverty mentality and I hate them so much!!!!! My resentment for them is toxic and I don’t know what to do!?

I need some advise!!

Posted on Mon, Oct. 09, 2017 at 02:32 pm

I am so glad that I found this forum.
We got married 5+ years ago.My husband hinted me before we go married that he doesn't get along with his dad.At that time I didn't think anything of it.But after we started living together I was shocked to see how evil his dad is.He basically does not get along with anyone.On the other hand my MIL is handicapped and she has many faces.When we started looking for a house my INLAWS started forcing us look for a bigger house so that they could move in with us.

My INLAWS wants to have full control of our lives, they want to know everything we buy, where we go, where we spend our money and also wants us to send our bank statements to their address ( we live in Seattle and they live in Texas) my FIL also wants us to send our tax papers to them so that he could file taxes for us. They want us to call them every single day and tell them what we are upto. My FIL has disrespected numerous times and he even asked my husband to divorce me on my face when I visited them the first time on Thanks Giving .Since then living together is out of question.

Now its been 5 years I haven't spoken to my FIL, he doesn't speak to me or my family at all.He does speak with my husband of and on. My husbands relatives knows everything and take so much advantage of the situation.They wants us to fi the situation but wants my husband to come alone to TEXAS so that they can talk. They have created so many misunderstanding in between me and my INLAWS. My husband understands everything but wants everyone to get along.I just have gone crazy thinking what to do?

Thank you!

They're punishing me. They got so mad at us for not attending everything they invited us to (and of course they blamed me,) that they stopped inviting us to anything.
Do they have any idea how happy they've made me? No, they do not.
I dreaded getting together with dh's family. After two years of marriage I had learned to truly hate the holidays because I knew what was coming, all of their dysfunction, attacking us, trashing each other, bil and sil even ganging up against their own kids! Who does that!?
I do not miss being thrown into that pit of vipers every holiday season, and I'm hoping we're off the hook for good.
When all you're offered is venomous fangs or the cold shoulder, the cold shoulder is heavenly.

I am so grateful I have this forum, it's the only place where I can be understood without being judged.
My ILs are extremely dysfunctional. It's their upbringing. Poverty and alcoholism do not provide individuals with positive and effective coping mechanisms. You can only make do with what you have, and I recognize that, but what grinds my gears is that my husband doesn't see their dysfunction and will always defend his parents' behavior until he is blue in the face. Bless his heart for being so loyal to his parents. But at the same time shame on him for letting his parents walk all over me.
They've been the victims all along. Their behavior is justified. I'm rude and inconsiderate because I ask that they call before coming over (because I would hate for them to drive 30 minutes one way to find out we are not home, or that we are heading out the door). I've pushed them away with my demands. I've driven this wedge between him and his family. Oh the list goes on. Calculate every single injustice that I have ever "done" to them, hold it over my head, and make me feel guilty about it! Meanwhile, I'm barely recognized unless someone needs medical advice. Thanks for remembering my birthday. Yeah, I'm a complete c-bag when it comes to my birthday, but at least a phone call to make sure I didn't off myself would have been appreciated. Oh wait, you're probably waiting for the call that I'm dead.
And for the rest of the bloody fools in your gang of hillbillies, thanks so much for showing me you really care. You want to know why your kids never receive presents from me? I told you I was a c-bag, all I wanted was a thank you, or even an acknowledgement that anything I send you has been received. I know you all are over the age of 18, and somewhat know the value of a dollar, so when I spend my hard-earned money on a gift, a simple "Wow, thanks" isn't that hard. Nope, it's like it is expected that we shower you with gifts. Not anymore, sweetheart, get your shit together, and start making your children a priority.

Jealous MIL

Posted on Sun, Oct. 08, 2017 at 10:54 pm

Thanks to hurricane Irma, my parents in laws had to move from a flooded,rotten two bedroom apartment. This month, they moved into their new 'home', as MIL puts it.
They live in a ONE bedroom duplex, costing them $900 a month. There is already plumbing problems in the duplex. Cats and cat poop everywhere. Loud neighbors.
My DH smirked as MIL chimed, "I'm getting a bigger home soon with your other brother and we will live in a bigger home than you and your wife!"

My BIL doesn't want to move back with his mother and father. The other brothers don't want to help MIL as they got large families. We aren't moving with them either, we live in a different county!

(And yes, I laughed when I saw DH's mother's disgusted face at me,saying I live in a home and she doesn't. Honestly, serves her right for treating me like shit all these years!! No regrets!)
