Mother In Law just moved in...

I'm 27, been married for 1 1/2yrs, have a 5mos baby, and my mother in law, who is disabled, just moved in.  I know it's for the best and everything will work out, but I am having some anxiety problems (which isn't a first for me, I'm on Prozac).  Anyone else been in this situation?  Any advice to help me calm down?

No advice just good luck and I hope you guys set up ground rules. There's no way my mil could move in with me. She talked about buying the house next door and I told my hubby the day she did was the day a for sale sign went up in ours.

Good luck! We live next door to my MIL, and I CAN'T WAIT to move.

How is she disabled?

What are you and your husband going to have to do for her on a daily basis?

Can she help y'all some?

When and how will you get time to yourself, and couple time?

Just make sure to be very clear about the groundrules from the very beginning.  Having mutual respect for each other is a must. Just some tips I learned while having roommates. :)
