@TexasSpringBride:  I think there are crazy people like that everywhere. My aunt isn’t quite that far gone yet, but boy, pretty much everyone in my family except my mom and my late grandma are EXTREME right wing with a healthy dose of BPD (or whatever condition it is to make you shove what you think down everyone else’s throats all day long). I’m from TN, so yeah, I know what you’re going through. (With the exception of this nonsense – WTF)

There are just crazies everywhere. I still remember trying to explain my ex’s behavior to people and they just didn’t get it unless they saw it themselves…and the worst part sometimes is that YOU started to feel like the crazy one.

Hey! I just had a thought…your aunt should use my ex’s photos! lol He had multiple profiles on dating sites (while we were married) and used celebrity photos saying they were him. The pic of the lead singer from The Alarm and Richard Dean Anderson were one thing but when he used a pic of BRAD PITT?!?! Who in the world doesn’t know who Brad Pitt is?! My friends and I all had a good laugh over that one. Even though he’s remarried, he still has ‘fake’ photos on his fb account…one specifically of ‘him’ wake boarding…it’s a pic of a professional wakeboarder/photographer. I know because I searched it too. He was showing pics to our kids bragging to them and it just pissed me off because he was lying to them.

Your aunt would be an awesome match for him! lol

@TexasSpringBride:  I don’t believe that anyone should just go along with these lies. Most people have never dealt with a situation that is this extreme so they also don’t understand the damage done. They believe that if you ignore it, it will just go away…it doesn’t…these people continue to get more and more outrageous with their ideas or accusations.

Wait I think I got lost a couple pages back. You called her out on the lie? How? By being passive-aggressive “Oh I love this page on him!” Or by saying, “That guy is married with kids and lives in Boston.”

I have to know. Because reasons.

@TexasSpringBride:  I don’t know if it’s worth the effort, but now that you’ve blocked her, maybe you could make an FB status update alerting people to the situation so people like your poor uncle aren’t taken in by her? Something like, “Not to add more fuel to the fire, but Aunt X has been playing an elaborate joke on everyone. Sorry to have unwittingly played a role in all of this.”

 

And i hate to bring this up, but I’d be really careful about mentioning your wedding date & place anywhere that she can see it.

Look, the way I see it- the best thing you can do is just ignore all of this. She is clearly CRAZY, and people will all realize it soon enough.

I find it ridiculous that people are actually indulging her petty, childish fantasy.

I am so sorry that you have to deal with being related to someone so dilusional.

Woot Woot! Hopefully your family finally sees her for the psycho she is! If her own daughter liked the stats that back up what you are saying pretty well! GO YOU!!!

I am rooting for you every step of the way! 

This kind of behavior is unacceptable and should not be tolerated. No one should feel obligated to blow smoke up her ass just because she might be psychotic, or have some mental illness. That is NO excuse for her actions, especially since she has come out and said to her daughter she is intentionally doing this to get back at you. Someone needs to call her out on her lies, to me that can only be helpful so it can get her to realize a few things.

  1. She’ll begin to understand that she cannot lie to you, or your fiance.
  2. You’ll call her out when she lies publically.
  3. And you will not be silent for her benefit, and that you’ll stand up for yourselves.

She is being disrespectful in my opinion and she needs to be dealt with. You are handling this situation the best way you can by calling her out on her lies, trying to stop her lies from effecting innocent family members. There is nothing wrong with trying to reign this woman in some way. Good for you for standing up for yourself and not letting her crazy rule over your life, if no one is going to try and get her to calm down and all they will do is encourage it then your family needs someone like you to stand up for reason. 

……Seriousness aside this thread is hilarious, your aunt is hilarious, and I am sorry you have to go through this, but enjoy a nice glass of wine with your fiance’ and enjoy this situation for it’s funny aspects (like you clearly have) and remember not to interalize the things she does out of spite, or craziness. 

Keep going on with your bad self, girl!
