Re: Contemplating Blocking all IL’s on social media

I think a fake account would be good. Then they would think they are stalking you but they get zip. I can’t imagine how awful it would’ve been to have been stalked by my ILs. I took the most drastic steps just to avoid it by avoiding social media at all costs. Now that the worst of them are dead I a...

Re: CluelessBIL still a criminal

I could've sworn I posted a reply to this post when I first read it...Weird... It caved in for some reason. Spinning can cause that I suppose. :lol: :lol: :lol: That was the icing on the cake! I've noted many times before: I’m not creative enough to make this stuff up.At the time, ESIL blamed the c...

Re: Felony Niece is pregnant, the rules are different for he

All I can add is THAT POOR BABY! He/she doesn't stand a chance! I second that! Some people should not be allowed to procreate and FelonyN is definitely one of those. That type usually ends up single and back home living with their mother while having their mother raise their child moreso than thems...

Re: Felony Niece is pregnant, the rules are different for he

My MIL died a few years ago and those who knew her almost universally have an opinion where she went. :twisted: I bet she endures the company of my ESIL there and they torment each other every day telling lies about how awful their ILs were to them, constantly trying to outdo each other. They only ...

Re: I have made a terrible mistake

Miwako, this is the hill I’d die on. No. I would tell your DH that his discomfort because you are not there is a small fraction of your pain of being there. Give him the option of accepting the fact now or accepting it on the way to the airport alone...you are not going. He can tell everyone you’re ...

Re: NieceIL and DH text

So sad for you Jiggly. Believe me I know what it’s like to go out of your way for an IL and have them just ignore the effort. It made me feel used. At least I can point to my ESIL and say that she turned on me for a reason. In your case it seems not. Do you think it was her parents’ influence? I’d s...

Re: The Abuser is My SIL...

I totally get how you feel, KOP. I was very shocked by how MIL and FIL were raising ESIL. Truthfully, they weren't. Too much effort. She would say no to taking shower or to brushing her teeth and they would just say OK, live with your stink. I didn't understand how they could just abdicate any respo...

Re: Demon Spawn of MIL

I remember well, but not fondly, the visits from ESIL for a few weeks during a couple of summers when she was 14/15 or so. I was shocked at how entitled and spoiled she was for one thing, but I will admit she did seem grateful for the break from the barn she grew up in. The thing that shocked me the...

Re: CluelessBIL still a criminal

WTTBT, I found another arrest for CBIL even after I posted. The truth is that it doesn't change anything in my life because I'm so far away and far removed from the whole debacle, but yet...I still wonder. My hunch is that he's probably not paying property taxes when they're due. CBIL has everything...

Re: It boggles the mind!

Isn't it just bizarre hearing it from the MIL's point of view? And to actually hear her say the things that so many DILs and SonILs have imagined their MILs were thinking? It's one thing to wish she had been invited on a resort vacation with her son and his extended family, but to actually invite he...

Re: It's been awhile - just an update

I don't know where these people get off treating you that way! It makes me madder at your DH, I think for thinking you should be exposed. Since 6 months into our marriage, we had a good comfort zone away from my ILs. Since we moved last year though, it really does feel lovely living 20 hours away fr...

Re: BEC Mini-Vents

My ESIL: She was never the type to do any work. Even after she had bragged for weeks about how hard she had worked to clean the PILs house when FIL was in the hospital, it was a pigsty. Seriously, the appliances were all caked with grease and smoke residue and the toilets were sticky all over and ri...

Re: BEC Mini-Vents

For some reason, my EBIL forgot about 20 times that my DH and I both worked every Saturday and Sunday for 25 straight years. How many times would he have invited himself for the weekend if we hadn't just told him to quit asking. You aren't coming for a "visit" if the people who live in the home are ...

Re: Aunt In Law

I know how you feel. Even though the whole meltdown with my ILs wasn't my fault, the fact that I was distant to them and ragged them to my DH could have affected how he felt about them and behaved toward them. So, I felt like it was my fault in a way. I also blamed myself that I underestimated them ...

Re: Who else is having an in-law (or toxic in law) free East

our life goals at this point: surround ourselves and our children with people who want to be there. :!: :!: :!: As it should be. It makes me wonder how we got off track in the first place, being entrapped into spending time with haters, resulting in horrible feelings; guilt, anxiety, and resentment...
