i have been on the outs with my mother in law pretty much since i've been married. she has been critical of me and she always subtly implies something rude through an always seemingly sweet disposition and tone and after 3 years yesterday i had it and i was calling to confront her. long story short we both ended up apologizing for things that may have been taken the wrong way and we were confident, at the end of the conversation, that we could move on from everything with a clean slate.
i told her at the end of the converstation pretty much the most important thing to me is that she understand that this our life and we're are gonna live it how we want to(not like that but pretty close maybe nicer) and i told her that i would feel better and like she wasn't trying to run our lives if i knew that she had accepted that we might not live in this state for the rest of our lives(the same one as her and only 15 minutes away from her) she told me that it breaks her heart and she doesn't think she could give me her full blessing to which i said well yeah it breaks my parent's hearts too(they also live in the same state but an hour away) but they've accepted it and understand that we want to live our lives and don't wanna hold us back.
TODAY i get a phone call from her and she tells me that she had an episode this morning that she drank some mcdonald's coffee(caffeinated) and that her heart started to flutter and she felt like she was gonna pass out a couple times and she was barely able to call 911. and she told me that she's in the hospital, she's stable and feeling okay...well enough to make a phone call to me...yeah...and then she told me that she has times when she's not okay. it goes in and out.
this might be heartless but honestly i wouldn't put it past her to try and get her way. she has NEVER NEVER NEVER ever had heart issues. and then i tell her yesterday that we might not live here anymore and she tells me that it's heartbreaking and then the very next morning she ends up in the hospital?? with a "heart flutter" anybody seem as suspicious as me? it's an awfully great coincidence.
???? what should i do? my husband has an illness that is stress induced and if this isn't real, then there's no need to upset him and stress him out. he is going through his last clinical for school right now and desprately needs to make it through and graduate. should i tell him what happened? she is "stable" apparently. but i don't see this as serious and neither does my dad? i need some feedback please. i am not gonna let this woman manipulate us like this if that's what she is doing!
