I know exactly how you feel. Up until about 6 months ago it was the same for me. She moved in with my family when she had surgery January08 and had to have things her way. We fought so much over how to take care of my kids and the fact that she shows a lot of favoritism to my 4 year old. Finally I moved out of the apartment and had everything switched to her name. It was only about 2 weeks she moved out herself. Into her moms house. I guess she just wants to be needed but it was still hard living together when you have one way of doing things and she has another.
