@amyddlz:

First thought: Oh my goodness! You poor girl.

I dated a guy a few years ago and his mother was THAT WOMAN. She was always pushing me away and I could never do anything right. It’s a feeling you can’t deal with for long and I finally did confront her.

Most importantly, have you explained this whole thing to your guy? Does he have anything to say about it? It seems like (by the way it’s worded) that no one is stepping into the lions cage and actually explaining the hurt and confusion she is causing. I can’t help but wonder if there is something deeper than the nit-picky plate setting garbage and the extreme over-production with the autistic child (which would piss me off to no end). It sounds like an insecurity thing. Is she embarassed becasue the child has a disablility, maybe she thinks it reflects on her in some way, like it’s her fault? And the silverware and table setting could be a control issue.  

I think you already know you have to approach her because otherwise you’ll just eventually LOSE IT. This  isn’t the best advise but, I can relate to you. I’m sorry you’re in such an uncomfortable situation. Theres nothing like a hard to deal with Mother-In-Law.
