I feel all alone on this situation. Part of me is amazed at how well and patient my hubby is at times with his mother but I always get blamed no matter what and then he screams in my face. He says she is like a 2 year old that is not capable of learning and that I should not take it personal when she tells me I have never will never be a part of this family yet expects me to kiss her a.... wait on her hand and foot. I tell my husband that the emotional is worse than if he just hauled off and punched me in the face. Those wounds run deeper and never seem to heal. What can I do to just not let it get to me? If I ignore her she gets mad if I mimic her faces or tone I get screamed at. if I say the same exact evil words that spew out of her mouth right back to her just so she see's first hand how much it hurts I get screamed at. When is it time to just admit defeat?
