What kind of evil woman offers to pay to have her own grandchild aborted? You were nothing but selfish scum and I'm glad you're dead.

I don't have to look at your face or tolerate your drama, game playing and playing favorites with your children. You were a horrible mother in law. Thank Christ I'm rid of you and your bullshit forever.

They give family a bad name.

Posted on Wed, Nov. 26, 2014 at 07:54 pm

My inlaws always put me down.

I wasn't a good enough cook--even though I had won awards for my cooking. MIL condescendingly handed me a recipe that involved nothing more than a cake mix and told me to make and bring it to a family gathering. Like the doormat I am, I complied, although I was adept at complicated recipes. I still recall the sting of her insult but I said nothing. As others have mentioned, MIL would not eat my cooking, suggesting a restaurant whenever I extended a dinner invitation. Slap. Slap. Slap.

My husband's mother and sisters didn't think I knew how to dress. They would advise me what to wear to various occasions as if I had no ability to determine that for myself. To see them now draped in anything that will fit over their hippopotamus-like physiques is laughable.

My inlaws didn't think I knew how to take care of my husband. My husband is not an obese alcoholic. He is fit and as well as can be considering his deprived childhood. Regarding my kids, the inlaws were masters of intimidation and condescension. I have never met people with less intelligence and abilities who nevertheless set themselves up as authorities over everything. Is there a name for this, failures who think they have some mandate to lord it over everyone? Delusions of grandeur, perhaps? I was told how to shave my legs (not, use Nair they said or it won't be smooth enough for your husband,) and my hairstyle was criticized because I refused to copy MIL's Marge Simpson coif.

I hate them with a passion. They destroyed my life of promise and made my life a living Hell, and still are. Of course, that has been their goal all along.

Stay away from men who are "close" to their families. 99 times out of 99 you will be destroyed.

In Laws Christmas Party

Posted on Wed, Nov. 26, 2014 at 05:41 pm

I made the mistake of asking my DH about his family's Christmas party, when and where is it. So I immediately said "Well I'm not going". I changed my mind, I do not trust my DH for one minute when he gets around the idiots, and if I am not there, he will wind up giving his brother money. So I am going to tell him that I am going, because I like the restaurant where it is going to be held at. And if I am there, then his brother will not be stupid to ask my DH for money. His sister was asking him about me and my plans. Why don't you call and ask me what I planned on doing. Well that would make sense, and for the last 18 years, they have never made sense. Why should they change now?

I can't believe it's been almost 3 years since I've had to see you MIL. You don't know how peaceful my head has been. I never knew that I could be so happy! Guess it's kinda hard to constantly "drop in" whenever you feel like if you don't have our address now is it?

Feeling cheated

Posted on Wed, Nov. 26, 2014 at 10:07 am

There are only two ways things like this can end. Suck it up and deal with all the dysfunction or cut off ties completely. I don't miss being treated like a doormat, lied about, everyone trolling my fb looking for gossip and never liking pics or leaving comments, being blamed for luring away hubby with my slutty ways when he had promised mil he would never marry and would always live at home(dh doesnt recall this conversation but its burned into mil's memory). I feel sad when i think how i had dreamed of my kids having cousins who they felt as close as brothers and sister to, waking up to a houseful of merry christmas and hugs and laughter, a kitchen full of women cooking and remembering funny times. You il's think we bitchy wives stole your sons and ruined your warm loving families, yeah, well we had dreams to.

You'll never see him...

Posted on Wed, Nov. 26, 2014 at 09:12 am

Dear Mother In Law and all you nasty hillbilly red neck in laws, too!

I thought you should know that I found it hilarious that you posted a family photo on Facebook including my husband! You haven't seen him in nearly 2 years!! You don't call him on his birthday or any holidays and you somehow think in your tiny little brain that he would ever talk to you guys after all of this? Take that photo down, he will never be in your family again, he's with mine and is SO happy!

If this shows you anything, we will be in Texas soon visiting close friends and guess what, we will NOT be stopping at your house or giving you a call to let you know we'll be around.

We just now found out that you didn't pay a medical bill and they were coming after my husband for it. Thank goodness we sorted it out and the collections will be coming after YOU!!!!!! Why would you put a medical bill in my husbands name?? I guess this is your way of being as sneaky as you were about trying to claim a 2 thousand dollar insurance check that was made out to my husband. He doesn't owe you anything, your his parents and all you do is care about money. Perhaps you should have thought about your expenses when you were constantly eating out every day of the week, buying a truck that you can't afford, buying your 17 year old a car that she can't afford, and having expensive phone plans that yet again, you can't afford.

And sister in law- your nose and forehead are so incredibly ugly. Please, get some bangs, that new Christmas photo you posted was so awful, surely the photographer could have pulled you aside and fixed your flat hair. And why oh why did you make brother in law wear a red shirt? He looks like a big fat 300 pound clown! And I get that your baby is bald but that santa hat on him looks ridiculous. I guess I shouldn't expect hill billies that can't even decorate their own house to figure out how to look decent and classy in a Christmas photo.

As for me and my husband, we're counting down the days father in law dies of diabetes and obesity so you can be all alone, mother in law. Maybe you can die like your father did, by shooting himself with a shotgun accidentally. That's such a hillbilly way to die.

One day mother and father in law won't be around… and we're looking forward to that day.

oops I forgot to mention baby sister in law, you're still fat. When will you get it through your head that you're fat, LOSE THE WEIGHT! You still look like the fat man from LOST. Buy a flat iron, lose the weight, and have your ugly mother teach you how to put on make up.

dear double-faced witch
Your lies are always evident.
Your blaming your husband for everything is pathetic. Particularly when u treat him like crap, hecooks and cleans for u, including buying u an expensive car, allowing u to spend thousands and thousands on jewellery, much more. He is kind to all and everyone loves him. We all hate you though we are too polite to be anything less than gracious.

You act one way around me for a couple of hours, consistent with the evil witch I KNOW you to be, and anotherway when my husband finally came down.

You call my mom telling her i don't feed m y son, (he has a health problem) and come over and constantly imply the same to me. You pretend to be religious but don't follow the basic tenets and twist everything to suit your narcissistic bitchy self.
I hate you. Your son is messed up because of you, and I blame you.
When u die I will be GLOATING knowing you will finally meet your Maker. Why? Because I believe in an afterlife, it's the only thing that keeps me serene, knowing you will get your due.
People like you deserve nothing, no love, compassion, nothing. Evil witch.

You won't even know we're here.

Posted on Tue, Nov. 25, 2014 at 10:34 pm

So it started out as, You won't even know we are here as my mother in-law moved her travel trailer behind our home. Well...we definitely know they are here. It feels like and eternity even though it is just for the winter. "We" as in my husband and I and his mother and stepfather are supposed to share everything on the property but, looks like "we" means just us. We pay the land payment we pay the electric payment we pay for trash and internet, they use it all. My mother in-law has no problem inviting her grown children and their ill-mannered children to my home to spend weekends. My home which is filled with half dozen of our own children and several pets. Neither of which are too fond of the in-laws either. My mother in-law has already demanded that my husbands sister also move onto the property. Ugh! On any given weekend and sometimes week day there will be annoying people wondering around my house using or borrowing something. Harassing my children and pets to the point that the children disappear to their rooms when they hear them enter and stay there hiding. That is unless one of the annoying brothers chooses to go into the kids rooms and harass them about something that is ridiculous. I can't stand it! They love to give advise on subjects they have either failed at or have no experience with.

Don't even get me started on holidays. So it starts as hey what are you guys doing how about we all eat outside and invite everyone. Well of course my family can't stand my husbands family(and they get along with everyone)so they don't come over. So everyone means his family. Well you won't have to cook they say. Then I'm cooking because they can't for some reason, at the last minute. There is also always some kind of crisis in my husbands family some ones getting a divorce some one is getting kicked out or fighting with their ex over something hey can you guys help out? Not to mention borrowing vehicles and using the house keys attached to the key chain to enter my house at any time. I am sick of being run over. This is my home that we worked hard for. These are our things that we came from the bottom, with no help from them to get. When we were homeless and jobless they turned us and our children away. I can't stand these people and they don't care. They act as if what's ours is theirs. For the last two months I have been having serious medical problems and do you think the mother in-law could keep her loud mouth opinionated sons in her space, nope. She invited them all into my home to spend the weekend and get drunk. I can't even rest because I constantly have someone barging into my bedroom or some ones kid screaming. I am always on edge waiting for a knock on my back door from someone needing something. A ride, the bathroom, a shower, some of my husbands clothing for them to wear give me a break please. I have been nice too long and let them run over me for too long. Not to long ago I blew my top. Two of my husbands brothers and their kids came by late and drank into the night. My kids had an important event the next day. Well no one got any rest and the next day the brothers, even though they promised, did not attend the event with us. So I had to leave those idiots in my home while we were all out. I was so mad and also not feeling good at all because of the meds I'm on. I tried to take a nap only to be woken up by one of their kids opening my bedroom door and going through my things looking for something! I blew up. Kicked them all out and went to my mothers. Only to return the next day and have my mother in-law say she understood how I felt and knew I didn't mean it. Oh yes I meant it! Well now another brother is staying with us because he's having marital problems(third wife). He tries to tell my kids what to do while my husband is out of town working, which is every week he is home on the weekends. I don't know what to do. I am so miserable and tired of these people pushing me and my kids around. My husband is equally upset but is afraid to say anything to any one for fear there will be a confrontation. Did I mention his mother is a manipulative drunk? Ugh, disgusting, all of them. I am seriously thinking about leaving my husband because I can't have them always harassing my children and pets. We are barely paying our own bills with out them running up the electric and not even pitching in. They have all sorts of appliances that they have hooked up to our electric including an extra fridge and freezer. I feel like I'm going insane and being bullied all the time when I need to be resting and healing. Why can't these heathens get the hint and back off! They don't even respect my husband when he tells them no. I don't know how much more I can take and I won't even get into up coming Thanksgiving. Guess who's doing everything? Yep me not to mention they have invited extra outside people that I can't stand. The in-laws are also always calling the cops on each other because they can't get along. Too bad they can't all go to jail and stay there for a while.

Ripped to shreds....

Posted on Tue, Nov. 25, 2014 at 09:53 pm

My husband's family utterly destroyed him. He hates them and does not consider them family after what they did. They know this, and yet he receives a card full of the usual platitudes and flowery Fonzy language. Yeah, ignore the elephant in the room like a good little codependent. Why do people do this? Schizo much?

It's hit the fan

Posted on Tue, Nov. 25, 2014 at 09:39 pm

It's been a little over a year now since the initial incident. There was a small time frame where my MIL was in contact with me again, because my husband pleaded for me to let it go and move on, but it quickly ended after she continuously created drama and more problems.

It all started when my SIL and husband were arguing about why he's with me and how his family felt about that. In the peak of a yelling match, he left where they all were, and came home. He then started explaining to me what happened and how hurtful and unprovoked their conversation was, when his SIL and cousin knocked at our door. I was quite irritated that they came to our home to continue spouting hate towards me, but I gave him space and went to the other room. He let them in and they all sat, and not to my surprise, began to further discuss their disapproval of me. I was listening to what they were saying and after my SIL said "(my name) is a manipulate b!+@#, you are in an extremely toxic relationship and I'm just trying to help you see clearly." I found myself walking out to the front room standing up for myself. I looked at them both and said very calmly "you need to leave." I honestly don't think they knew I was home because they both had shocked expressions on their faces. My SIL looked to my husband for his input and he stood up and backed me up and made a gesture towards the door. My SIL became very angry and started shouting "f@+% you" repeatedly to both my husband and I and I just continued asking her to leave. She then raised her fists and started rushing towards me saying "I'm going to kick your a$$". My husband intercepted and forced her out the door where they continued to yell at each other all the way to her car.(embarrassing)...

Fast forward one hour and I'm the target for an all out war. My MIL and SIL started sending hate filled texts to my husband and I. Bashing my character, calling me names (even the C word), telling me I'm not good enough, relating me to people they hate... Saying they never want to speak to either of us again, My MIL telling my husband that he isn't the son she raised. With No responses from either of us, it eventually ended. A week goes by and no apologies. My husband called his mom and tried to make peace, from which I received a text simply saying "sorry". I didn't reply. I didn't speak to anyone involved in that, for 3 months. At which point my husband begged and pleaded for me to let it go and move on, because it was after all his mother... So, I did. She started coming over for dinner again and we were moving forward until she started talking smack about me behind my back. I once again stopped communicating with her. Which my husband didn't agree with, he thought I should have just dealt with it and moved on. I on the other hand refuse to be treated like I'm less than another, no one will make me feel inferior.

I haven't seen my MIL in 6 months and I haven't even spoken to my SIl since the fight.
