A World Away From Normal

She constantly sends the most ridiculous forwards. "If you forward this, Bill Gates will give you $245 for each person you send it to who sends it on." Bull like that.

I keep telling her not to send me that crap. I tell her to check it in Snopes first if she feels she absolutely must pass it on. She won't do it.

She also sends me prayer requests for her prayer chain, even though I've asked her not to.

Altogether I get 20 or so e-mails from her daily. About one in every 200 are personal messages trying to guilt trip me and tear me down.

I'd just block her completely, but there are those rare e-mails that are actually important. And we've semi-cut her off, so e-mailing me is the only way she can contact us now.

I want to thank you readers.  I've posted several stories about the way my MIL abuses my DH and me, and how DH's biological mother was a major abuser.  I've received lots of support and advice from you.  Recently, DH agreed to start counseling, on the condition that I go with him, at least in the beginning, so he'll be more comfortable.  I am more than happy to go with him!  He's also finally starting to see that he CAN do something about the way his family treats him.  I think that sometime in the near future he will suggest that we stop talking to them, unless it's completely necessary.  So, thanks again to everyone on this website.

I'm just annoyed right now.  I've posted before that my DH's biological parents were very abusive, in every sense of the word.  When DH was 8, he and his younger sisters were taken from their mother and put in foster care.  When he was 12, their GM got custody of them and became their "mom".  She is who I refer to as MIL, because DH considers her his mother.  MIL likes to act all self-righteous because she saved those kids from an abusive situation.  But, in truth, she wasn't much better.  DH tells me that she would choke him, when she got angry.  Her main weapon has always been emotional abuse (and lots of it).  But, she also employed physical abuse while they were still small enough.  They never told anyone because they were just happy to be clothed, fed and warm.  I just cannot understand.  How can a woman take abused children under the pretense of giving them the life they deserve, and then abuse them more??  DH has so many scars from his childhood that he's blocked most of it out.  Occasionally, he tells me about it.  Yes, it was worse while he was with his parents.  Just because it's a milder abuse, doesn't make it better.  He wonders whether his GM ever actually loved him and his sisters, or if she only took them in for the "glory".  I'm inclined to think the latter, honestly.  But, I'd never tell DH that, because it would just break his heart.

I think I'm slowly going mad.  DH and I got married 2 1/2 years ago.  We moved overseas almost immediately (he's in the military).  In September I visited my home state and saw MIL a few times.  It was difficult, but really not as bad as it could have been.  In December, though, MIL is coming here.  I have no choice about it.  DH's uncle is in with the military and also lives in this country.  He is the one who is paying MIL's ticket over to spend Christmas with him and his family.  DH was raised by his grandmother.  He considers her to be his "mom", and she's who I refer to as MIL.  So, his uncle is her actual son.  But, since we live only an hour from them, she will be visiting here.  I've already told DH that I will NOT tolerate her nitpicking at my house, the way I clean it and decorate it.  I will NOT knock myself out making this place spotless.  It will be everyday clean, not special occasion clean.  If he doesn't like that, he can clean more.  But, if she says ONE WORD about my home that is negative, I will give her a piece of my mind.  But, that just doesn't feel like enough.  I know that, in reality, I won't have the guts to tell her off.  But, if I make myself scarce when she's here, I can't trust her not to mess up my house.  I, also, don't know how to diplomatically say, "No, you cannot spend the night here."  We have a spare bedroom, but it's not really equipped for overnight guests.  Besides the fact that I just don't want her here.  I am more interested in keeping the peace than I should be.  I don't really know what to do or what to say.  I'm just hoping that she wants to spend most of her time with the uncle and his family.  DH's family is very big on the whole "lets pretend nothing's wrong" cr@p.  So, he'd prefer to just ignore her.  I can't do that, though.  If you've read my previous stories, you'll see how abusive she is.  But, a cutoff is out of the question.  DH literally owes her his life.  What a cr@ppy situation.  I really need advice.

DH joined the military while we were engaged.  Two months after our courthouse ceremony (nobody there but him, the judge, and me), we were sent overseas.  I had a very hard time finding a job.  It took me nearly a year.  Right after I started my job, we got the news that DH's older sister was finally getting married, in two months.  DH told her he'd try to come to the wedding.  However, money was too tight and DH's leave was denied anyway.  That was a year ago, and we have not visited our home state since.  Now, my older brother is getting married in two months.  I am intending to attend the wedding, but DH will not be coming with me.  MIL had a fit when she heard this.  She is now spreading rumors that I forced DH not to go to his sister's wedding, that I will force him not to attend his younger sister's wedding (which isn't for another 3 years), and that I am using his money to satisfy my own selfish needs to go to my brother's wedding.  Well, I'm sorry MIL, but SIL gave us two months notice to fly halfway around the world during the most expensive flying season (July).  I'd just started a new job, so money was tight.  My brother gave us a year of notice and offered to help pay for my ticket.  And, BTW, I make more than DH now, so whose money do you think I'm using??  Anyway, now my ILs all think I'm a selfish, controlling b!$@#, who refuses to allow her DH to visit his family, whom he's apparently "depressed without".  Thanks a lot.

DH and I had our wedding planned for the summer of that year.  DH was supposed to come home, on leave, between training and moving to our next base.  Well, the orders came through, and they were for overseas.  So, in order for me to go with him, we had to be married sooner so that I could be put on his orders.  I hopped on a bus, and met DH at his training base so we could have a courthouse wedding, with none of our family there.  Here comes the part where MIL tried to ruin everything.  She's always had this thing where the last girl was the best.  No matter who he dated, she hated her and would tell him to go back to the last girl.  Once we became engaged, MIL made it her mission in life to break us up.  I have loads of stories about things she did to get him to leave me.  So, there I was, sitting in my hotel, waiting for DH to pick me up and take me to the courthouse.  The phone rang.  I answered, thinking it might be DH saying he was running late.  But, it was not DH.  It was MIL.  To this day, I don't know how the woman got the number.  I didn't even tell her what hotel I was staying in.  I said, "Hello," and she launched, without preamble, into a list of women she'd rather he marry.  That list included a girl he cheated on me with when we were dating in high school, an ex who was emotionally and physically abusive, an ex who tried to trick him into taking responsibility for a baby she was pregnant with before they ever met, an ex who pretended he'd raped her because she was pissed that he'd dumped her, and pretty much every other girl he'd ever so much as looked twice at.  I told her, "Well then, isn't it too bad that he loves me, and is marrying me, and I will be your DIL until the day you die?"  I hung up the phone.  I didn't tell DH about that phone call until recently.  He was furious!  Then, he said, "I don't think she actually loves me.  She only says she does because she has to."  That made me sadder than anything that old witch has ever said or done.

Oh yuck!!!!  I'm seeing more and more how my MIL has an unhealthy obsession with my DH.  His birthday was this past weekend.  She called and left a voicemail wishing him happy birthday, and saying that she wished she could be here to "spank your little bottom 21 times".  Sorry, you creepy old woman, but that little bottom is only going to be spanked by me.  Plus, she gave BMIL our new number.  BMIL left a voicemail singing happy birthday to DH.  Luckily, I checked the messages and was able to delete it before he heard it.  He didn't need another holiday ruined by those people.  And now to change our number again and "forget" to give the new one to MIL *sigh*.

Why can't DH understand that when he makes silly jokes about me to my MIL, she takes them seriously and uses them for ammo later on?  To ANYONE else in the world, those comments would be harmless, and obviously a joke, but not for her.  Of course, he chose tonight to call her for the first time in months.  Of course, I was in the room and couldn't escape.  He also said nice things about me (and the wonderful meals I cook and the wonderful birthday party I threw him), but she doesn't seem to hear those.  I want to smack them both - him for being too dumb to know that she's squirreling away all those little comments, and her for duping my slightly retarded DH and using his jokes against me.

I am still shuddering.  MIL sent DH the following (unprovoked) email.  Let me first say that DH has not talked to MIL since before Christmas.  All the news she has of him is through me.  And, seeing as he is going through treatment for a major back injury, you'd think their first correspondence in nearly two months would at least to ask how he's doing?  But, no, this is what he received:  I HAVE A PICTURE OF YOU (SEVERAL) RIGHT CLOSE TO WHERE THE COMPUTER IS.  THERE IS THE ONE I JUST LOVE OF YOU IN YOUR BED.  I TOOK IT ONE NIGHT, AND IT IS SOOO YOU, AND SUCH A HANDSOME YOUNG MAN.  I LOVE TO LOOK AT THAT, AND I TALK TO YOU!  TONIGHT I SAID, "[DH], YOU SURE ARE A GREAT LOOKING MAN, AND I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOUR FACE!!!!  LOVE GRAMS.  Now, who else finds that just a tad creepy?  And, BTW, considering the fact that every email I receive is written with the spelling skills of a preschooler, it's really amazing to see her write to him without a single typo.  I think she loves to annoy me, and is a little obsessed with my DH.

Two months after we were married, DH and I were preparing for an overseas move.  There was an awkward transition period that left us without an apartment for the last 2 weeks before the move.  MIL "kindly" offered to let us stay with her.  She put us in SIL's room, and had SIL sleep in my other SIL's room (both girls were still in high school at the time).  Those were two of the worst weeks of my life!  I'll spare you all the gory details (I'm sure you can imagine the sort of things that occurred).  But, here is what set the tone for the whole stay.  When we got to MIL's house, she pulled me aside and said to me, "I want you to know that I understand you and DH are married now.  So if you two want to have s*x in SIL's bed while you're here, we won't mind.  We're all heavy sleepers, so you won't disturb us.  Plus, I put extra sheets on the bed, so you won't get any 'little men' on the mattress."

Since the disaster on Christmas, I've been thinking.  Some of the readers here suggested that I talk to MIL.  So I've spent the last 2 weeks trying to think of the best way to say it.  I finally said something to her last night.  I called her and put up with some chit chat first (it's very difficult to get a word in edgewise when talking to her).  When I finally had a chance, I said, "(MIL's name), there's actually a reason I called.  I wanted to talk to you about giving (BMIL) our number on Christmas."  Well, she made a noise similar to when you step on a puppy's tail and immediately said, "Well, I know how badly (DH) wishes he had a relationship with his mother!  I bet he was so happy to talk to her!"  I said calmly, "Actually, no.  As you know, DH doesn't wish to have any contact with her.  Ever.  He considers you his mother.  Not her."  These are things she's known for a long time.  She said, "Now, (DH) pretends not to like her, but it's just an act.  Trust me, I really know him.  He wishes his mom could really be his mom, and he wants a relationship with her."  I responded with, "Yes, he wishes she had been a real mom to him, but he does NOT want a relationship with her.  She's hurt him too many times.  He's given her so many chances, and she always turns back to drugs.  He doesn't want her in his life.  Period.  No."  MIL tried to protest again, so I said, "Look, you ruined his Christmas."  She kind of sucked in a breath and immediately started crying.  I said, "I'm sorry, but you did.  You know that all those kids are still hurting over their childhood.  (DH) tries not to think about it all, but when he answered the phone Christmas morning to her voice, he started reliving his childhood.  He spent all day remembering being beaten and starved and neglected and watching his sisters starve while his mom shot up."  By now, MIL was sobbing.  She told me that I was being cruel and lying to her.  I said, "No," I wasn't lying and it wasn't cruel.  Cruel was giving BMIL our number on Christmas.  I told her we were changing our number and that she could have the new one if she didn't give it out to anyone we didn't approve.  But, if she messed up again, she wouldn't be getting our next number.  MIL continued telling me what an awful person I was, but I stood my ground.  I don't care if the woman hates me for this.  DH should not have to suffer like that.  For his part, DH said he was ok with me talking to MIL, but he didn't want to hear about the conversation.  And, he didn't ever want to hear from his BM again.  I hope MIL takes our conversation to heart.

My DH has one of those 2 syllable names that is commonly shortened to 1 syllable.  You know, names like Deborah, Alison, Catherine, except it's a guy's name.  His whole family calls him by the full thing.  He introduces himself as the full thing, but he really doesn't care which one you call him.  From pretty much day one, I called him by the shortened version.  I like it better that way.  One day I called DH (then BF) shortly after we'd started dating.  MIL answered.  I asked for him by the short version.  She replied, "X?  There's no X living here.  You must have the wrong number."  I apologized and dialed again, thinking that maybe I'd misdialed (I'd called before and gotten through, so I knew it was written down correctly).  MIL answered, and again I asked for him by the short version.  MIL proceeded to yell at me that I was "a dumb bleepity bleep (accusing me of being promiscuous, but in less polite words)" and that I should clean out my nasty, dirty ears and listen when things are said the first time.  Needless to say, I was appalled!  I quickly hung up and didn't try to call again.  I saw DH (BF) at school the next day and asked him to write down his number again, because something had gone wrong.  I explained what had happened and he started blushing.  He then told me that he'd overheard the yelling and insults, but not the first phone call.  She'd refused to tell him who was calling and what they wanted, so he didn't know that it was me.  I've since learned that MIL gets offended when people give her grandkids nicknames.  She once said, "What right do you have to go changing someone else's name??  You didn't give birth to him!"  Right.

I've just learned that MIL may be coming to visit in the spring.  And, I can't say no.  Here's why:  DH is in the military, and we're stationed overseas.  DH's uncle is also military.  He is stationed at a different base, but in the same country as us.  He's been here for 7 years.  He is planning to pay to have his mom fly out and visit (MIL is actually DH's GM).  Since they're only an hour away, yep, you guessed it, I'm stuck seeing her, too.  She wants to stay half the time with us.  Not gonna happen!  I will not let that holier-than-thou hag criticize every aspect of how I keep my home, like she did before we moved here.  You know what she said?  Here's a cut and paste from the email I received:
"iM SO GLAD I CAN FINAL SEE WEAR YOU LIVE!  iLL HELP YOU OUT DONT WORY.  i CA SHOW YOU ALL MY TRIKCS TO KEP THE HOUSE CLEAN LIKE [DH] LIKES IT!  aND i CAN TECHK YOU [DH]S FAVRITE FOOD SO YOU CAN KEEP HIM HAPPY!  yOU WANT MY GRANDSON TO BE HAPPY RIGHTE?  IM BRINGING SME EXTRA STUFF TO SOME LITTLE THINGS TO MAKE THE PLACE LOOK NICRE. tHERES A PAINTING aUNT m_____ IS SENDING THAT WILL GO PREFECLY WITH THE COLORS i PICKED OUT!!"
Oh my lord, please tell me it's a dream!  My only comfort is DH's uncle's wife.  She's treated just as badly by that woman as I am.  We're seriously considering running away for the month and letting the boys entertain themselves.  After all, she doesn't really want to see us.

DH was raised from the age of 10 by his GM.  She is whom I refer to as MIL.  I have never met his biological mother (who I'll call BMIL from now on), and probably never will.  She was (is) a drug user and was very abusive and neglectful.  From the moment of conception on, the only good thing she has done for DH and his siblings was to carry them to term.  Not that she treated them well as fetuses, either, doing drugs and drinking alcohol the whole time.  It's literally a miracle that those kids survived long enough to be taken away from her.  Anyway, BMIL has only hurt my DH over and over.  DH stated years ago, while still living with MIL, that he no longer wished to have any contact with BMIL.  He no longer went on family trips to visit her.  When she came to visit them, he'd find a friend to stay with.  He threw away any mail, deleted any emails, and refused to return her phone calls.  She was a toxic influence on his life, and he didn't want to deal with it anymore.  Well, MIL KNOWS, and has known for years that DH doesn't want to talk to BMIL and that he doesn't want her to have our phone number or address.  So, on Christmas morning we woke up to a ringing phone.  DH answered the phone, and it was BMIL.  MIL had told her that DH was just desperate to wish her a Merry Christmas, and gave her our number.  DH, nice guy that he is, didn't tell off BMIL because, for once, she didn't technically do anything wrong.  But, it completely ruined Christmas for him.  He spent the whole day lost in his own awful childhood memories of Christmases where he was beaten almost to death by BMIL's boyfriend, or times when he didn't eat the whole week.  That's what he spent Christmas thinking about because MIL was evil enough to give that woman our number.

I've got almost 6 years of built-up frustration with this woman to let out.  So, I'm going to start at the beginning, and tell the whole story, a piece at a time.  I may forget things now and then, and backtrack, but I fully intend to help everyone understand why I despise my MIL.  So, here goes:  I met DH when we were 15.  We were good friends for about 6 months before we started dating.  It was just a cute, innocent, high school relationship.  His idea of hitting on me was to ask my help in fastening his pukka-shell bracelet every morning.  We dated for a month before his GM (she raised him, and he hasn't seen or spoken to his biological mom in years, so from now on I will refer to GMIL as MIL, because that's her role in the situation) wore him down.  Turns out that the whole time we dated, she was bugging him to dump me because we were, at the time, from different religious backgrounds.  Even though I've since learned that she is NOT the oh-so-holy woman she likes to make herself out to be, she found our relationship (seeing movies, holding hands, and closed mouth kissing?) to be sinful, because I was a godless sinner.  I should have taken the hint that day, over 5 years ago, when she first shoved her big fat nose into our relationship.  But, that's only the start.

MIL actually did all right with my gifts this year.  I got a shirt that was several sizes too big, and a pillowcase that my 12 year old cousin would love.  So, I'm a fat 12 year old, there are worse things to be.  But, poor DH, he got socks.  I'm not kidding, one single pair of socks with a clearance sticker still on them.  Oh, and a little note saying that the shirt was for him, too, because she knew that he'd like to see me looking nice.  Apparently, I don't usually look nice.  Poor DH.  It's sad when they even treat their own child like cr@p.

In my first entry, I told how MIL convinced DH (then BF) to break up with me because I was a "godless sinner" (when we were only 15).  About 6 months or so after that incident, I had all but forgotten about him.  You know how teenage relationships are.  I became very religious.  A couple of months after that, I decided to get baptized.  Before I did, I sent an e-mail to him to let him know that I had become Christian.  Since he had, at one time, professed interest in my spiritual well-being, I thought he would like to know.  When his GM found out, she had a field day.  She said that I was a liar, and that I was only pretending to find God to trap him back into a sinful relationship and drag him down to he!! with me.  The sad part is that she honestly seemed to believe her own nonsense.  I had no interest in him as anything more than a friend, and barely that.  I certainly didn't want to try dating him (and his psycho GM) again.  Thankfully, DH didn't believe her and was happy for me.

When DH and I had been engaged for 3 months, he left for basic military training.  That was in December.  MIL, who had been so obsessively involved in our lives up to that point, disappeared off the face of the earth.  So, now I knew that she only spoke to me because I was engaged to her GS.  All right, I can deal with that.  She's psycho anyway.  Well, DH has an older brother, whom I'd never met.  He's in the army, and rarely is able to visit home.  He was coming for Christmas and wanted to meet his FSIL.  He made MIL call me and invite me over for dinner on Christmas Eve.  I was excited to meet him, since DH looks up to him a lot, and is always going on about him.  About 2 days before Christmas Eve, MIL called me and said, "[DH's cousin] is sick, so we're not having Christmas."  WHAT???  The woman actually expected me to believe that they were canceling Christmas because one member of the family had a cold???  Yep, she sure did expect me to believe that.  She told BIL that I couldn't make it.  Then, when DH called to say hello on Christmas (from Basic, BTW) she launched into the list of reasons why he shouldn't marry me.  The first on her list this time?  The fact that I "made up a lie" to get out of spending Christmas Eve with her.
