Re: Are we cut off....or not?

I understand this. Problem is, your DH's behavior. He's the one allowing his mother to continue contact. She can try to manipulate all she wants but if he's leaving that door of opportunity open for her, she'll take it. He needs to learn to put his foot down and ignore her completely. Guess he still...

Re: Thanksgiving Contest - whose IL is the worst

Lol, I would've loved to join in but I've cut ties with them and we're no longer planning to see them on holidays. Or at all for that matter.

I'm curious as to what everyone's lists will be. Hopefully nothing too awful. Hate to think anyone's Thanksgiving would be ruined by a bunch of jerks.

Re: Once Again, SIL Comes Out Smelling Like A Rose

Sorry you didn't get the result you wanted. Problem with manipulators is, they've so honed their skill, it's hard to disarm them. She's a master of her craft. You would have to be at her level of evil cunning to beat her at her own game. And since you're not a conniving bitch, it's difficult. She re...

Re: when you become the hated IL (or almost...)

This would annoy me too. Thing is, you know she's had a bad upbringing and even though she's dim, your brother did choose to be with her. That has to be respected among the rest of you. As far as her bad behavior, she needs to be corrected. Try correcting her in a loving, older sister way. Help her ...

Re: Do your inlaws have a "favorite" SIL/DIL?

Ew, your MIl sounds possessive. So creepy when mothers have such a weird, unhealthy attachment to their children.

Re: It's over, I'm in shock

*applauds you* Bravo!!! I can't begin to say how proud I am of you of how you've handled all this. You're a truly brave woman, good for you! Your fiancee's behavior is the same as his family, manipulative, controlling and selfish! You definitely dodged the bullet here. If you had stayed with and not...

Re: Is anyone else too scared to stand up to inlaws?

I used to but not any more. Now I worry I might lose my temper and say things I can't take back. I've already done this to my BIL and his wife and now the situation is much worse. You can't rationalize with irrational people. I won't bother going over things with them because I know they'll never ch...

Re: Advice from Therapist

So true and this is why I cut off all contact. Like you, I was suffering from extreme anxiety and panic attacks. I knew I couldn't do it anymore. I have no desire to ever see them again unless absolutely necessary. I cannot live my life around evil people who's desires are nothing more but to contro...

Re: Pushing hubby to do anything about inlaws

I am sort of having a similar problem but not so extreme as yours. I feel that my IL's, especially one of BIL's is stalking me somewhat. I think he's trying to find 'dirt' on me. Definitely keep any and all evidence of what your FIL has been doing. Obviously he cannot be a well, stable man if this i...

Re: Are you stronger?

but if I could turn back the clock I'd dump DH and stay single. Ditto. Same for me as well. My DH is a wonderful man and everyone who knows him, loves him. But his attachment to his family and lack of backbone is very tiring on me. It has strained us to the point where I was ready to leave him. I a...

Re: No longer seeing the in laws...

Wow, the stories on here are insane. Some people are just evil to the core huh? I am so sorry we are all in these horrible, awkward positions with our IL's. I too have cut off all communication with my IL's. I doubt it bothers them that I'm no longer around but I know for a fact it bothers them that...
