Hello everyone! Im just looking for some advice coping with my daughters soon to be step mother. She has been in my daughters life for about three years now. I was happy to hear my ex had found a girlfriend as we had been split for close to 3 years and it seemed he took the right precautions and steps in finding a women suitable for our daughter. I was also happy to introduce myself to her 3 years ago without any pre meditation at an event we randomly ran into eachother at. At first it seemed to be ok and I felt good about meeting the new women in my daughters life. Then soon to follow alot of weird things started happening that really took me back, confused me, made me think I was crazy,and hurt and still continue to hurt me to this day. Oh where do I one day I look in my rear view mirror and see my exs girlfriend riding the tail of my vehicle, so I think this could be a coincidence until the next run in.....then one day im at the stop light, I look over and shes making rude gestures to me, pointing and laughing histarically, I look away and just ponder "did that really happen" these types of things have been going on for the last 3 years and my ex seems to think its all fun and joking and to not take it personal. As of lately shes been telling my daughter things like "your not going on vacation with your mom" and "your mother copies my ideas" again my ex thinks these are jokes????? My daughter clearly doesnt when she tells me and these also affect her and make her uncomfortable. I suffer from extreme anxiety due to the situation, my ex and I share 50/50 custody and this soon to be step mother has only shown my daughter and I this side, my ex is completely blinded, im scared, why would she be doing this?

Try to record her whether it's audio or visual. She sounds a bit unhinged, I would be leery. Don't let this cause you anxiety, she's not worth it. Have your daughter tell her father the mean things this woman is saying. If not him the perhaps his siblings or parents because it will get back to him from another source other then you.
