This is a long rant I'm sorry, I just don't know where else to let it all go.
At the beginning of this year my family had gotten an apartment with my mother in law. We were paying the bills evenly until my husband lost his job. Then for two months my in law covered the rent while I finished my schooling. Then as soon as I finished and started my new job she somehow got it into her head that I had $1200 in my bank account already and that I'd have no problem with covering the rent on my own. By this time it was already a week past our rent payment. I spoke with my husband and told him that I don't have the money she thought I did. Fast forward to my pay day and my check is small. I can't pay the rent. Meanwhile we're getting warnings and eviction notices. I barely have half the rent by then. Meanwhile my in law wins 5 grand at the casino. She wants to move into a new apartment, first on her own, then with us then with her daughter. I'm upset because she won't just go half with me on the late payment and then we'd be okay for the next payment. This causes her to throw a tantrum and she picks up this metal pole that goes to a shelf; she begins smacking herself in the head with the bar until she's bleeding. She's screaming and then gets up silently and goes to the bathroom to take pictures of the blood that's now streaming down her face. Ever since then we've been in the process of packing our things up, now anytime she can't find anything she runs into my room and starts going through my things to see if I've stolen it. She had $2,000 in her bag and got paranoid that it was in our room so she came in again one early morning and began sobbing to my husband that her money was missing and that it had to be in our room.
I'm not sure how to deal with my in law. I think she has a lot of mental problems and I can't handle it anymore. Anything I do is a problem, if I pick up the dirty washcloth she likes to leave on the kitchen floor then I'm dirty because natives don't know how to clean. If I have any food in the freezer she'll say it's making the fridge stink and I won't throw my food out because black people eat bad. She picks at my race a lot. Of course I had no clue because she wouldn't say it in English. I don't know I guess I'm just frustrated because I know this is going to hurt my rental history. She literally won some money and dumped every body. I'm happy that my son is only 1 so he has no idea what's going on though.
