My husband's grandmother treats me horribly. How can I stop her from taking me for granted?
She's 91 and mean. Her two children wouldn't take her in so my husband talked me into her living with us and 20 years later I still hate it. I used to work full time and attend college. Along with that stress I had to deal with her trying to split us up and being treated horribly by her. My husband always sided in with her. Well, I reached a breaking point and tried to commit suicide. I was institutionalized and could no longer work. So now I'm home with her 24-7. How can I stop her from verbally and mentally abusing me and taking me for granted. Putting her in a home is no option (no money). After my suicide attempt and nervous breakdown, my husband now sides in with me. And no family member will deal with her because she is so abusive. Most days I accept my fate that she's with us until she dies, but other days I'm to tired to stick up for myself. Should I just stop doing everything for her so she will at least hold her tongue?
