There is something about my MIL that I cannot figure out.Every cell about her takes my energy away. Be it the way she looks,she sits,walks,laughter or any emotion...it drains me completely. We all have people in our lives whom we do not like and detach ourselves from them.After that we are relaxed. I met three people in my entire life whose energy depleted me completely. 2 were my ex friends and my mil. Rest of the time,I usually keep limits with people I do not get along with and it does not bother me. I understand that dil and mil problems are common but the. "energy' and "vibe" she gives even when she is normal drains me away. She has been fortunate financially and support system has been strong but I have never seen such an unhappy person in my life ever.. Everytime her sentence when I ask how she is doing,her reply will be " Am just counting my days..my health is this and that.."..it's only sulking and unhappiness.. I call her only once a month these days and after talking 5 mts with her ..for the next two days I always feel extremely low! I can feel it.Every single time! I used to wear a jacket once in a while which she used to wear when she comes here and everytime there was always a fight between me and hubby or I cry and get too stressed..I stopped wearing the jacket. I understand hate but I can feel myself mentally and physically very exhausted and too stressed after talking with her even normally.Sometimes even I feel feverish. Is there anything called "Negative energy"?
