… that my FMIL and I were closer. Unfortunately, she’s flat out CRAZY. She’s an alcoholic, clinically depressed/bipolar, and very unstable. Honestly I’m not sure how her son turned out so amazing 🙂 At one point in our relationship, I tried so hard to be close to her, but then I realized that would never happen. Everytime I see her now (no matter how much I tell myself to get along with her), it starts out ok, but then she ends up drinking one beer too many (if not more) and I can’t handle it… Ughhh just makes me sad to see how a lot of you bees have such amazing future in-laws and both of mine suck… as much as I hate to say it 🙁

I’m so sorry to hear this! Maybe over time your relationship will grow. For now, be civil and do the best you can to make it worth it!

Thanks y’all! I hope so too! The only real way I think I could ever hang out with her “normally” is if I go out to eat lunch with her or something when she’s only had under a six pack (she starts drinking when she awakens) and entertain her enough so she has no more to drink… sad, huh?
