My sweet FIL died 3 years ago. So my very difficult and self-absorbed MIL is driving us really nuts. She did go to assisted living 7 days ago..saying it was time. We could not believe it.
She is in a gorgeous place with an apartment. She calls wanting to come home and look thru things she says she needs. We ask for a list..we will be happy to bring it up. She got so angry..said she was going to call elder abuse on us. She has no more room in her apartment. She was assisted in the move and they brought everything she needed. We are quite sure if she came home she would sit down in the one chair left and refuse to leave.
She thinks we are selling her crystal and china.
We think we should stay away for a bit. The day I took her to assisted living..I took her to get her nails done..I got a pedicure. On the way out she thru a cup of water on my head because I took too long. My husband says she has been this way all her life. My FIL warned me too. Bipolar or Borderline Personality disorder..or both.
Should we stay away for a bit...at wits end. Help!
