hello All, hope you are safe and healthy. It's been a while since i came here to write about my Mil dil issues. I was going through a tough phase trying to concieve a child and these issues were not priority. Now i have a child, with God's Grace and the issues with mIL have come back. particularly because mil is here to stay. H is applying for her GC. the issue is she hasn't changed a bit but I have. The amount self restraint i had earlier, I have lost it. I lose my patience easily now. I am caring for my child (1.5 years) 24/7. H does help but i am the primary caregiver. My child does what every toddler does. throwing tantrums, screaming, throwing etc. etc. and I because i am a human being, get angry, scold her. My mother in law just sits there and judges me as if I am committing a crime. She tells me not to scold her because she's a child. To be fair, she's always polite and sweet talking to mychild and expects me to be like that. I mean for a person who does nothing but sits and smiles and takes no responsibility, how hard can it be to keep her cool? Of course from time to time she will lend her voice repeating my words to mychild which is not serving any purpose other than contributing to the noise. With covid, we are all at home and it just feels crowded. It s not the physical space, it is the mental space. I dread going to the main room because she will be there day in and day out. before child, I had the option of staying inside the room before busy with my own work, but now i can't because i am caring for my child 24/7. It is taking a toll on me because i have no break whatsoever. from MIL. TO be honest I HATE HER. there i said it. I had to vent. if you guys can give solutions on how to handle my temper, that would be great.
