Disgusting psychic vampire

Posted on Fri, Aug. 25, 2023 at 10:17 pm

Not sure if my BIL is the worst psychic vampire I've ever met, with the most disgusting energy I've ever sensed, or if my husband's unexplainable love for him makes me build far more aversion to his disgusting presence than I would have felt if my husband saw him for who he is.

Sorry we missed your call.... not!

Posted on Thu, Aug. 24, 2023 at 02:42 pm

I haven't seen MIL in 20+ years, DH has seen her once during this time (family funeral) and will answer her weekly phone calls about 50% of the time. She has a history of stalking us (yes the police were involved) which stopped when her health prevented her from travelling, but since one of her carers introduced her to the internet she has cyberstalked us instead. My socials are locked down tight, so are my (adult) child's, but DH has refused to block her on FB because he's scared of her reaction (he's not accepted her friend request, but he won't even decline it, it just sits in his inbox), but his profile is private.

Anyway, guess who's discovered you can make phone calls thru the messenger app? That's right! MIL!

DH has several missed calls this afternoon (he's working!). We're hoping the novelty will wear off, and yes I have told him how to deactivate messenger calls. but I guess he'll just moan to me about it instead of actually doing anything about it ;)

Maybe if she figures out how to facetime he'll crack and actually block her lol

You are so strange

Posted on Wed, Aug. 23, 2023 at 10:58 pm

Your mom told you we were going on vacation and you decided to go to the same place at the same time and not tell us. “What a coincidence” you said when you stalked, I mean saw, us there. Who does that?? Were you really surprised that we avoided you all week? Lol

Summer's Over

Posted on Wed, Aug. 23, 2023 at 09:24 pm

School is starting already, which means that essentially our summer is over.

I just want to give a shout out to our neglectful, pouty, temper-tantrum-throwing, silent-treatment-administering ILs and thank them for a quiet summer. I suspect the silent treatment will break just in time for the fall and winter holidays. I know you think we're going to have our usual holiday availability but this year we have some changes we're implementing (spoiler: they don't include anyone who is as cruel and toxic as you bunch of yahoos).

Here we go again

Posted on Mon, Aug. 21, 2023 at 10:27 am

I didn't think I'd end up back here, on this site telling you all how awful the inlaws are. I'm not saying they changed into wonderful ppl but i was stupid enough to think things were nice and civil. I was wrong. Two weeks ago I had a big falling out with brother in law (bil). He is a racist and a bigot. We were talking about a movie and he launched into one of his rants. I won't say what he said as it's very offensive but when called out on it he said if I don't shut up ill see what happens.He then proceeded to come towards me but my husband got in the way and we left. As per usual the inlaws have sided with the bil. Apparently according to fil,I planned this to make the whole family not talk and they warned hubby not to marry me. Im not sure how 17 years earlier he could predict this argument but there you go.For some context everyone hates fil. His neighbours, his siblings, all 10 of them, his work colleagues, he has no friends left and zero extended family. Same for mil. Even mil hates him and says she cant tolerate him but in the fall out they pull together like wolves. Mil has fallen out with all of her siblings except 1. They bad mouth everyone. They are so negative and recently I have been finding their conversations difficult to be around.im not woke. I don't have excessive opinions on world topics but i am supportive of being kind and respectful to others. This unfortunately isn't allowed in their company. Dh has written them off. He says they are toxic and that if I've got any respect for myself I will never speak to them again even if they say sorry but I know he's upset. Of course he is. It's still his parents but are we relieved that we don't have to deal with their negative behaviour, yes we are but it's still stressful. I'm not sure in what world ppl believe it's OK to threaten anyone with violence but in their world you deserve it because you spoke up and challenged them. These ppl don't care if they drag your name through the mud or if they break you or if they cause hurt. Their main issue is they didn't feel respected, they weren't able to control you. That's all it comes down to. Imagine that they cause all this hurt over absolutely nothing of any significance.

MIL a thrives on creating turmoil and pain

Posted on Mon, Aug. 21, 2023 at 03:57 am

Why would you want to create turmoil in our marriage MIL? I want my sons and their wives to be happy, and try to be a low key and loving mother in law myself. We are all flawed but I wonder what your deep flaw is that you try to make my husband choose between you and me. He chooses me but it has caused a lot of strife. He loves you as you are his mother, but he loves me as his wife and we try to be a team, a unit. You have your own husband. You are one of those controlling women I have tried to avoid in general.
You have also created conflict amongst your three sons. Why would you want to do this?

No Follow Up?

Posted on Fri, Aug. 18, 2023 at 01:33 am

I guess no one wants to follow up with the thrilling conclusion to the most recent adventure? We are waiting with bated breath for all of the detes and photos! I suppose if one of you looks ruddy and bleary-eyed while the other has a perma-scowl on then perhaps you wouldn't want to advertise that.

Trust me, I'm not bringing this up because we're somehow losing sleep over not being regaled with the tale. I bring it up because when you do NOT share such things, it does beg the question "Why?". If you think we consider it a punishment that we haven't heard, it's not. It does make one wonder however just how bad those photos must be.

My sister in law is straight up bonkers and it sucks that she’s blowing up her marriage this way but at least we won’t have to deal with her psycho bullshit soon.

I know that our shared in laws aren’t perfect but they’re damn close. Maybe your damaged family makes it hard for you to see it. They’ve bent over backwards to make you feel welcome, showered you with gifts and money and yeah, some passive-aggression hear and there. But they love you and it’s a shame that you’re willing doing this the way that you are.

Maybe you’ll see what supportive families are like as you watch your life go up in flames as your partner has all of us to cushion his landing,
