Re: Overwhelmed with Life

I'm so sorry Mara. At this point, is it possible for you to get government assistance for yourself and the kids? Hopefully they can help you. Sometimes there are programs to help place recipients in training programs and job placement. I've known several people who have ended up with great jobs beca...

Re: Just this close

This is terrible. I'm sorry you're dealing with all of this WMB. BPD runs on my mom's side of the family so I am all too familiar with it. My mom's dad also suffered with Schizophrenia. Thankfully no one else has inherited the disease so far but my mom and her 2 sisters are all full blown Borderline...

Re: Questions About C/O

You let your DH deal with his own family and don't go to the hospital even if one of the ILs is dying. Don't attend their funerals either. I'm full CO with my ILs and I told DH that I will never go to the hospital for the ILs or attend their funerals. I also don't want them there if DH and I get sic...

Re: MIL and FIL's favorite granddaughter

Wow, this was like an episode of one of those trashy morning tv shows. Really entertaining stuff. I should have had some popcorn while reading this :D Looks like the ILs have created their own karma and it's come back to bite them, hard! How satisfying. These people were born miserable and will die ...

Re: NieceIL wants to meet up

Has she communicated with you other than by texting? Text messages, as well as email, can be copied and sent to her FOO. Have you talked to her on the phone? Maybe call her without notice (to reduce the chance that she might be with another IL) and do some neutral chit chat. Listen to the tone of h...

Re: NieceIL wants to meet up

I agree with you Jem. Strangely enough, she hasn't texted since. DH texted her on the holidays and she replied but that was it. As far as I know, there weren't any further conversations after this one. I hate having to keep her out of our lives but I can't risk contact through possible flying monkey...

Re: Family Reunion Nagging

FIL is still at us to come out to his state for the annual family reunion, and my husband is still being non committal and saying that "maybe" we're going. They're going to be staying at FIL's sister's house, and he expressed hope that her cat would die before the event. Who does that? I think your...

Re: In Shock. Not sure how to handle

Is it just me, or would receiving such huge news in a text be a slap in the face to anyone? It's a huge slap in the face. One big narcissistic tendency is to marry quickly, abandon and divorce and jump into a new relationship as soon as possible. Sounds like this is what interests your dad more tha...

Re: Tis The Season

Sadly, I understand this all too well. Your DH has done the same as mine, avoiding the issue over and over again. My DH used to tell me he was going to talk to the ILs and never did. His avoidance would only cause my anger, sadness and resentment to build up. I told PILs we can all meet up and discu...

Maybe they're a more positive influence on him and he's better adjusted now. We can only ho...

Re: Article about Empathy & Men

My DH tries too but he will fail because at times, he's completely oblivious. Like you Ruby, DH used to be terrible about taking care of me and the household when I was sick but would get so over dramatic whenever he was sick. I would go out of my way to get him cold meds and make him dinner. He'd m...

Re: PIL passing away and NC

I'm sorry you're dealing with this Phoenix. I'm also sorry to say that you should probably prepare for the worst. Your ESIL will undoubtedly play mind games with your DH at some point. Now that she doesn't have FIL to hold over his head, she will use someone or something else just to have control ov...

Re: Karma is real

Even though I no longer wait on karma, there is some truth to this. I have seen karma inflict payback on narcissistic members within my own family. My husband's family would love to bring us down especially his siblings who are all very miserable in their own relationships. Not a surprise really sin...

Re: Marriage counseling

By the end of my appointment, the therapist basically reiterated what I knew all along. It was so nice to hear it mirrored back to me out loud. Omg, I can't even imagine how good it must have felt hearing this from the therapist. She sounds amazing so far. - Inlaws have an emotionally incestuous re...
