As you may or may not remember, a few months ago, I meantioned that my mother in-law was coming to stay for 3 months. Well she's been here a month now. This woman is incredibly irritating and in 10 years, this is the first time I've really met her. Her and my husband hadn't been speaking for almost 20 years when I told him he should write to her and let her know of the birth of our first son (now 3).
Anyway, (sorry of all this background, it's going to read like a novel by the time I'm done), when she made contact, I convinced him to try and rekindle their relationship, and hence the visit for 3 months, after 3 years of telephone calls and post cards.
BUT, in between it all, we've been renovating, I've been doing the whole work and kids juggling act (2 boys 15 mnths apart), my brother is a drug addict and his wife a bi-polar drug addict who have dumped their 3 kids on my parents (my only support network and causing deep feelings of sadness for my nephews and niece and dissapointment for my brother, and worry for my parents in their 60s)
Anyway, since the mother in law has moved in it's been hell. My already turbulent marriage seems to be falling apart before my eyes. I can't stand the sight of the woman and I can't help it (I want to help it) and I'm feeling like my mental health is falling apart and I'm losing all control and confidence in myself.
My husband thinks there is "something wrong with me" but all I want is some time alone with my family without this nutty, diva, hopeless, asskissing woman in my face trying to take over everything all the time... GRRRRRR !!!
Now I'm drinking every night, wanting to move out and find my own place for just me and my boys.
I'm lost, feeling out of control and desperate. I'm normally such a happy, bubbly person.... but now I'm just a mess. A train wreck. Can someone please tell me whats wrong with me?????????
