Should I be as angry as I am about this?
Need your help ladies. I have a short fuse. Over the years it has mellowed and I have learned ways to get out of conflict but as you all know it sometimes just slams you in the face and you have to deal.
Here's what happened today while I was at the library during my son's playgroup. It's closed to parents so I just wait reading or writing nearby if they need me.
MIL called 3 times left 1 long message all about herself and how she is going to find my doc and my therapist and go to them for herself. Went on about all her probs as usual, not asking me if we all were doing okay. I'm not actually but no one seems to care around here.
She called again and I picked up the phone to just deal with her and get it over with. I told her no way will I give her my therapist and doc info and i would prefer if she went to a different clinic altogether. She got pissed. I then told her that something she did last month really hurt DH and I and all she talks about is herself and she doesn't care about anyone else. I then said I needed to go and hung up.
She called back raging and screaming swearing and calling me names. I told her she needs to go to the hospital (i was full of rage myself and thats the only calm thing I could muster up to say).
This happened a few hrs ago and I started having chest pains I am shaking and I threw up my lunch. I am having some severe anxiety and exhaustion issues and cannot handle this.
I don't even know what to do. I don't want to change my phone # because of her but I can't stand these regular phone incidents.
