Just diagnosied - How can I be sure
quote:Originally posted by Bjblack:The issue with the faily members has really gotten to me. It makes me want to say..."ok, I will bring him to stay with you and you call me when you realize I am not making up stories about him." That is always been my theory! They think there is nothing wrong, let them deal with it! Boy I hate family denial! I basically told my MIL that her denial was not getting my DH, her son anywhere so if she wanted to keep her shit up, I would do exactly that, She needed to get on board or take over. Her choice! I wasn't gonna fight her and help my Dh. I am not sure if this is normal or if it is just me being defensive. His sister suggested that I keep a journal and I can call and review it with her so that she can "help" me determine if it is something "we" should be concerned about. Unfortunately it can be a "normal family response". His sister actually said that? Really? Oh good luck with that crazy in-law........
