I have a controlling religious crazy mother in law. You know the religious bats that gossip and think just by wearing skirts you are going to heaven. See, she used to be wild and drink, smoke, party, so on. But she "got right" and now everyone that drinks or smokes is going to hell in her eyes. She is causing problem after problem with my husband and I's marriage. She didn't use to be so bad, until we got our own house and now she can't control anyone so it is driving her crazy. She comes into my house quite frequently and tells me how to rearrange my rooms at least 6-7 times back to back. We had a cookout last Saturday night and I had other guests besides her and my father in law over, so naturally I talked to others besides them. This caused a big problem the following day, where she called my husband profusely griping that I didn't talk to her or her husband and that I stayed stuck up one of my friends butts that night. I thought Jealousy was a sin. She tries to talk crap about me to other family members, and she tries to turn my husband on me and play the victim. I am pregnant with my first child and she shows NO excitement what-so-ever. However, when my sister in law and her other son were pregnant, she was all for it, excited, just couldnt wait. Sadly, my sister in laws baby passed away after living only 20 days. Now, I know that it is sad, but my sister in law is coping well and doesn't talk about her deceased baby. My MIL I guess is dwelling on it, although she had no positive thoughts when he was in the hospital alive. I just don't get it. I try my hardest to please her, and it results as a lost cause. I have resulted to not going to visit them, and to distance myself seeing as all her stress has now made me a high risk pregnancy by keeping my blood pressure waaaay over what it should be. Any suggestions or is anyone else feeling my pain?
