My mother in law is lonely. I know she's lonely. I used to speak to her all the time, several times a day and then things went really sour about 4 years ago. Then her husband passed away and I still don't think she forgives him for leaving her like that. She berates everyone who attempts to have any type of conversation with her, pushes her family away.
I just found out that hubby is not the only child she does this to, she does it to all of them. Then she friends me on facebook and she's restricted. In other words she only sees the things that I put up as public for the world to see which isn't much, pics of my fish, funny little pictures of weird animals, etc.
She has gone from hateful to remorseful and yes I know she needs professional help. She has hurt me and my family for years but hubby wants to have a relationship with her. My stepson also lives with her and I did hear her tell him to tell me hi.
I know she's lonely and I feel bad about that (yes I know not my problem) but should I attempt to speak to her? I refuse the phone because you cannot log it so hubby can know EXACTLY what she says but is facebook chat ok?
