I've Got Your Number

It would seem that years (nearly decades) of observation (and trial-and-error) has brought us to this place where your actions and motivations are so transparent that they can be anticipated. If it can glorify you then you'll act however you need to. Your Shame-vs-Pride quotient is balanced, and as a result you can wear the look of the martyr and patron. We have no need for such titles or reputations. We're just trying to survive. I'm not sure you fully appreciate that. We all know what the currency of the realm is right now (according to you), don't we?

Why I am so lucky to have arrogant in-laws who will live to 100. These people have tormented me psychologically. Mil and Fil. are early 90s now snd going strong. Their joy is belittling me. I am not proud that I look forward to when they meet their maker

This too shall pass!
Let it go!
God don’t like ugly!

Unfortunately, computer trespassing leading to cyber harassment lasting years didn’t pass or wasn’t let go even by them.
If God doesn’t like ugly, I’m guessing God isn’t too fond of their type of pretty either.

Maybe the next quote should be “Live and let live, do harm to no one”.

Who am I kidding. I’m sure they will continue to do harm in one way or another.

Please just go away

Your son died over 3 years ago. Why are you still in my life? I can’t stand you. You have no boundaries and I see right through you: you don’t want to see your grandchildren. You just want another cheap holiday, you mooches. Go away.

You think you've won

Posted on Fri, Jan. 14, 2022 at 12:26 am

But you haven't.
The only reason I stayed with your sorry ass excuse for a son was because of my kids. I knew you'd all be the most vile, despicable, disgusting people when it came to them and I was right.
You did a shit job of raising your son and the same goes for his siblings. You all need serious mental help. You're all nuts.
Well, unfortunately for you, I am seeking advice, not only to help my children but also to see your son suffer like he's made me suffer.
Then I'll be taking advice from the law to see what I can do with the rest of you.

You will never see my children again.

Dear inlaws

Posted on Thu, Jan. 13, 2022 at 01:30 pm

It amazes me how you have a savior complex because you adopted 3 of your 5 children, my husband being one of them. And yet, all 5 of your children have suffered the most intense psychological and sometimes physical abuse I've ever had the displeasure of witnessing. Some have become addicts, others enablers of your sick game, but all very damaged. Because of this, dear inlaws, it astounds me that you want to continue to put the blame of the family falling apart on me for wanting as much space away from you as possible and for providing your son the love and appreciation he has always been worthy of. The funniest part of all however dear inlaws is how since you reared the ugly head of your true nature to me so early. You have no idea that when we DO have children of our own you will not once ever be left alone with them. Not to mention visiting time in general will be incredibly brief. I don't trust or respect you. I can only hope you both feel lonley and regretful after the consequences of your actions find you.

Mandated attendance

Another demand we attend a family party. We live 1300 miles away.
Of course my husband feels we must. Do I dare disturb the universe?

You once told me that you held a grudge against me for speaking up to you when you refused to let my son in your living room with his drink, which blew me away because these are some of the things you have done to me:

Called me lazy constantly because I didn’t have a job always ….. I had no car, and was raising a young child , your big Baby son had a hot meal every night and NEVER had to lift a finger in the house.

Ask what your grandchild wanted for Christmas then proceed to tell me your sister said she shouldn’t buy your grandchild anything because he never calls you ….. he was 8 and abused by many members of your family and didn’t like talking on the phone.

You tried to get me to eat a single piece of pie that you made specifically for me, and stomped your foot and yelled “NO” when your grandson said he would eat it! I know you poisoned it.

Your sister slammed the door in me and my sons face when I knocked and asked if he could use the bathroom.

You refused to let your grandson live in you’re 4 bedroom house when we had nowhere to live.

You told me your other sister told you not to help us with food, so you didn’t. While you took vacations, ate lobster redecorated your houses more than 10 times that I know of.

Your whole family, especially YOU talked shut about me in front on my child.

The worst is a tie, the time you showed up hours late Christmas morning after promising your grandson you’d be there at a certain time, and I had to watch him cry because his stupid father wouldn’t let him open any presents til you got there.

Or the time you held a half birthday for my young and I was not welcomed in your home.

Your sons are MONSTERS because of YOU!

I am so glad you’re TOXIC family is out of our lives 💙

MIL is destryong my marriage

Posted on Tue, Jan. 11, 2022 at 05:36 am

We live separately from MIL but we might as well be in the same house, what with how she is taking my husband away from me.

Hubby calls her more than once a day, EVERYDAY.

I tell myself it's ok because MIL lives alone (separated from FIL) but it's become more and more clear that he loves his mother more than he loves me, if he even does.

There are many days where he would either give me the silent treatment, or would respond to me but would be very irritated. Yet when he calls his mom, you can literally hear the happiness in his voice.

MIL is very needy and helpless without my husband. She knows that one call from her and my husband will drop everything... and she calls my husband for the very littlest things.

My husband and I have grown further apart. I believe it is because he is occupied with thoughts and concerns for his mom, and has forgotten that he has a wife who needs his care too. I am low maintenance and I don't need much, but why is he so caring to his mom and his sister but cannot be bothered to ask me how my day is.

I'm sure he knows how to show that he cares - he calls his mom more than once a day only to ask how she is, if she has eaten meals, or to ask for latest gossip about their neighbors. The first thing he does when he wakes up is call his mother... and he can't even be bothered to look at me when I say goodbye when I leave to go to the office.

Intimacy has been out the window for years. How can I even think about that when I know he only has thoughts and concerns about his mom in his head.

I miss my husband. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I had married an orphan.
