I work, we have a daughter, his mom (ugggghhh)is staying with us, he started a new job, he also just went back to school pursuing a law degree. MIL has said all her problems are his to fix and she will be with us until they are! She needs a new place to live and can not pay for anything. We have our own bills. Going to school, working full time, fitting in family time all this is ridiculously stressful. Add MIL and her health and financial problems and her just plain hatefulness into the mix and it is making my DH physically sick. I try to talk to him about all of it and the only response I get is he knows what he is doing. I get that she is his mom but I feel the roles are reversed, I do not know how to handle a parent being so dependant on a child. Especially one who refuses to help themselves and just expects things to be done for her.
You are a girl needing all the support from all of us!!!!! This is a big'in. It sounds to me it is maybe the way he has been raised????? I am bumping you to the top. I hope all us moms can do a reach out!

I had my MIL living with us for years and he wouldn't do anything about it too. But sounds like she needs less bills. i say to take the bull by the horn so to speak and do through all her bills and cancel what she doesn't need and tell her if she doesn't start doing for herself and helping out at home then your calling a nursing home since its obvious she is sooo helpless (sarcasm dripping) If she lives will you what bills does she really need anyway!? It worked for us

Next question overall
Did anybody ever get a bad headache after an epidural? How long did it last?
