- Wedding: August 2016
My mother-in-law went out of her way to make me feel really uncomfortable right before your wedding. She has a history of going out of her way to be rude demeaning or make really snarky comments.
A month before the wedding I had a serious reaction to medication and went temporarily blind. My fiance and I went to the hospital obviously cuz I was blind but my mother-in-law must have thought I was faking it or something. She kept calling while I was in the ER. She knew I was having blindness issues and wouldn’t leave me alone. When I was discharged from the ER she showed up at my house the next morning pretending to be bringing over wedding gifts (she didnt bring any although she claimed her house was full of them) but demanded to discuss the rehearsal dinner. My fiance told her not to contact me so she started emailing me. She was demanding addresses so she could mail invitations. She also sent out an email telling all our guests at our wedding date and time had changed when it hadn’t. I also feel like in that email she implied I was faking it even though I told her I didn’t want people knowing about the eye issue. All this is happening in between hospitalization and doctor’s visits.
I feel like she really use me when I was really sick. And my fiance told her she needed to apologize and she got mad. She also said I asked for her to be that rude. When I talk to her she blames my fiance and when my fiance talks to her she blames me.
After the wedding they are trying to play nice and guilt trip us into having dinner with them. However I’ve heard rumors from their side that my blindness was “stress-induced” implying that I’m a hypochondriac or hysterical.
I never want to speak to her again or be in the same room but obviously my fiance loves his mom. I don’t want my future kids to have contact with anyone who’d be so mean to somebody who is having serious health issues. I have no idea how to get past this. And I’m obviously still having issues and don’t want to be told I’m hysterical. I have no idea what to do.
