Ok, my brothers soon to be wife just had their baby. She begged the doctor to induce her even though that would mean she would be 3 weeks early, then she had the baby breech so she had a csections and the baby had breathing problems. Got that right? Ok, now I go and see her, she tells a different story saying she went into labor (lie lie) and that the baby did not have any breathing problems, but she was in NICU because her mother came up positive for strep so the baby had to be on antibitiotics. Man the story is always changing with this one. I really don't care and did't until when I was leaving. She commented on how fat I was and how my face was not as pretty as it used to be. I let it go....Then she said how my mom "borrowed" money from her 745 to be exact and said she only rcvd 250 back so far. I told her her house was being taken away and that is the reason why she has not been paid all the way yet. She proceeds to say she is going to SUE her??? She is not in her right mind. She starts screaming about how horrible she is (i agree to a point) and that she is going to get her money back buy sueing her. I simply pointed out that there is NO money to be had and she would just make things worse. Needless to say my husband made things worse by asking me whos side I was on and then told me to shut up?? Man o man. Every one in my family is crazy. My poor brother was just looking at me with this lost look on his face and shaking his head; he married his mom.

I hope mine will be less complicated too soon. NOt only have I decided not to see my mom, I'm just not going to see any of them. I don't think they really care anyway, with the way they act. God will provide and guide me.

Oh wow! That is insanity at it's 'finest'. People like that are so difficult to deal with. I wish I could give you some kind of advice to help you out. We have the same type of person in our family (my sister in law), and I have no idea of how to deal with her except to do as you did and walk away. Your poor brother...sounds like he married a very wicked person. And your husband should be more supportive of you, instead of acting the way he is. I wish I could be of help...but I at least can be a really good listener when you need to vent. Good luck with this hon.

Thanks, I did need to vent....a lot. I was just soooo angry and hurt that my colitis acted up and I was put into a panic mode. Had to take a klonipin and now I have had to take them daily since this weekend. Oh well. I think that the best therapy I could do is to stay away. Just like willowlady said.

OK, as soon as you stood there and heard her lie, you should have backed away and said that you were glad it all turned out ok and that you had somewhere to be. Not play into the drama that they seem addicted to. We already know your hubby can act badly. That is changeable maybe. Different work. Anyway, bad things happen to bad people so your momma loosing her house is a result of those actions. You are not part of that. Again time to stick to you and yours and start a new life and just let them wallow in their drama and bad feelings. They are toxic and have no part of your life. Time to become happier, healthier and more whole now. Will you please give up on them. Pray for them if you like, but that is it. I still have hope for you.

I seriously did not think I would be dealing with this from that sister to be. Looks like you are right about the WHOLE family being toxic. I just can't get it; why are they like that?? I know no one can answer that question, but it still boggles my mind. They are ALL so mean and want to use me to make everything alright for them. Ain't gonna happen. I told my brother(s) all of them and my mom that I will be moving (hopefully) to VA. That got them into a fine snit, but I just did not aswer the phone calls nor did I listen them at all.
