Possesive and controlling mother in law
I have a big problem for my mother in law. Her possessiveness and controlling, dominating attitude hurt me very much. She believes that I am a barrier between her and her son. I protested against her thought but she has started to attack me verbally passively, by alleging his own son for negligence, though he is dutiful. When she comes, she takes the charge of everything and does not let me get involved although I have shown interest in involving many times.
Her behaviour to me becomes very good for a few days but after few days she starts to show her own colour. In simple issues she reacts very badly and scolds her son by saying that she is neglected because of his wife. She threatens us by saying that she will never come to our house. It is completely emotional blackmailing. She comes again and abuses me verbally passively. She asks her son about every household matters including cooking. She never asks me or tries to know my opinion about anything although I do everything as a housewife. When her son is absent she asks me. At her son's presence she forgets about my existence.
In my pregnancy period she came and took care of me but verbally abused me and alleged me for her unnecessary suspicion. She poked her nose in all matters including our quarrel without knowing anything and respecting our privacy. She always does this. My husband and father in law don't protest. It creates a lot of mental pressure.
My pregnancy period became worst for me. she insulted my parents many times and doubted that they are separating her son from her. I can't protest because of her emotional blackmailing. I am scare and suffer from low self esteem. I am depressed. I have good relation with my hubby but he is also helpless. I am going to be depressed and worry about my child.
