My mil has no life of her own and nor does she even try. She sits in her room all day fixated on the news. I am really starting to resent her. None of her four daughters want nothing to do with her so she is stuck with us acting more like one of our children than a grandmother. I have tried to reach out to her by encouraging her to get a life, make friends, get some male companionship, learn a new hobby etc. but she always come up with some sort of excuse. I know from her actions at times that she suffers from some sort of mental illness but I do believe alot of her actions are from her being lonely, bitter (her husband left her 30 yrs ago, vindictive, jealous, and jealousy of me, yes her own DIL. I just want her out of my house and away from my children.
