Are you friends with your MIL on Facebook? Opinions please.
Yesterday I decided to delete my MIL from my friends list on FB. She made a snarky comment on one of my posts saying that I was complaining and ungrateful. Needless to say, the post was for me to vent. I do not vent on FB very often but when I do, she always comments on those particular posts.
My current situation: I am pregnant and on bedrest. I am unable to work due to the bedrest. The doctor told me that I have too much amniotic fluid and my son has a left ventricle in his brain that is larger than it needs to be. I also have a 2 year old. Very frustrating time in my life right now. Here is what my post said:
Grrrrr.....I can't fall asleep. Husband is snoring his face off and he has most of the covers. I have insane heartburn, both of my hips hurt, and my stomach feels like it's going to explode. Not to mention all of the anxiety I have in thinking about everything and worrying about my appointment with the specialist on Tuesday.
This was my MIL reply to my post:
"Be glad you have a husband who takes care of you. Be proud of your heartburn and stomach for the wonderous thing God is letting you go through and is going to give you and have faith that God is in control. It's all on how you look at things. And yes, it does sound like complaining not gratefulness"
So what do you all think about this? My MIL and I get along pretty well most of the time. I am pretty sensitive to things right now. Just didn't think she needed to refer to me as being ungrateful....it hurt my feelings. Just because I vent about something does NOT make me ungrateful. Life is a very precious thing and I am very grateful for everything I have in life.
