My MIL lived with us for 7 years and it was HELL. It really, really weighed on me and I was not in a good place mentally and emotionally for a really long time. It just got worse and worse as time went on. I was so stressed that I was having full blown panic attacks. I feel like a really tried to engage her and get to know her but she made (makes) no effort to know me back and it hurts me. I am incredibly relieved that she no longer lives with us since she was a terrible room mate on top of it.
I have a 14yo daughter from a previous life and I recently had a baby 4mos ago with my husband. My MIL has come to visit almost every week which I am quite surprised about but it's so awkward when she's here because she doesn't talk to me. I try to have a conversation with her and all I get is one word answers. It's so frustrating.
I could complain all day about her! Just had to get it out since she was here today! haha
