I have many problems with my mother in law. She does have diagnosed problems-bipolr(the sad kind,not angry), depression, anxiety, and has been suicidal. She is obssessed with my daughter and husband. Very nice to me, but will lie to me(she thinks I dont know) about conversations that apparently happened between my husband and her-things to make her feel good about herself, and like she is trying to prove to me that he still needs his mom to help him with things. We just bought a house and doingwork to it, she helps my husband with work on the house(painting, and such)..while I am at work.She ruins things, does things her way, gets under his feet. He will find things for her to do just so she will shut up about getting to help. When I get home she will brag to me about everything my husband needed her to do(which he didnt), and make up conversations about them that never happened. She is sneaky, will try to find excuses to see my daughter or find things for me to do so she can watch her. And she has her once a week as it is! I used to invite her on shopping trips with my daughter and I, but she would sit in the backseat and play with her and ignore me. DIdnt want me to breastfeed her, so she could hold her and look into her eyes and bond with her and feed her.She runs around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to find things to do to help us and get into our lives. And we do involve her! Its not like we leave her out. She is just weird. But its to the point, I dont even want to come home if she is there! My husband knows how she is and always agrees with me. But we do not want to put her out of our lives, we love her,she is just crazy,,what to do?
