Yes. Here it goes again. Why? This is the only place I can.
My mil lures you in with sweetness, love and affection. She is kind, giving and generous.
Until she isn't any more.
One little miss step and it is on.
She uses your insecurities against you. Her middle daughter is belemic. Not spelled right but you get the idea. She has a new husband and moved to a new city. Her asthma has gotten bad again. Instead of bling the new environment, she blames her daughter's weight gain. For the first time ever she actually looks healthy but no. She had to put her daughter right back into crisis mode just months after her husband got her eating habits on track.
The witch did the same thing to me but the problem is that it backfired.
Her daughters grovel to make up. Her son gave her an ultimatum back in '99. Accept my wife or have nothing to do with me or my family.
Looks like she made her choice.
I never made the connection but I have now. That is what abusers do. They do something nasty and make you feel like it is your fault. That you deserve what you got.
That is what she does.
Not anymore. She took her anger out on my kids. Never again. She thrives on the pity she gets as a result of her own actions. I refuse to be part of it.
