Have Any Of You Wanted To Spend Time With Your Mate And Their Mother Calls And All Plans Are Suddenly Called? If You Complain You Are Wrong.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have tried to get along with my mother-in-law. She always calls last minute and my husband falls in place like military call. I asked myself was I wrong? This is his mother. But she always checks with him and assumes I am not coming because I have been sick. I just think she doesn't care. We have already been having problems and then he tells me she called to go to Columbia to see his twin sister. I am having stomach problems again, wanted to go to church, and come back home to home to relax… read more

Have you both considered going to a couple’s therapy to see if counseling can help? I’ve never been married but I just hate to see a couple split up. If your situation is causing undue stress as it seems to be you know within your heart what you need to do for yourself. Your son’s words probably cut you like a knife so sit down with him and have a discussion about why he feels that way and ask him if the tables were turned how would he feel? Sending prayers out for you and take care, wishing you seizure free days.

It dsounds like he is a Mama's boy. He has not grown up and does not speak for himself. She knows he will drop everything when she calls. As mentioned by Jadelck, it sounds like you would be much better off if you left him. Epileptics do NOT need and should not have stress and that is what you are dealing with. That can affect your health. He does not want to understand so separate yourself from him and get your happiness back. You deserve your happiness and a good llife.

Thanks for everyone help. I am considering separation. I know I can make it on my own. I want to wait until I have important tests at the end of April. My husband is supposed to come with me to my neurologist. She said this, not me. I told both sons, and the oldest son really hurt by what he said. Mom, what do you want me to do? If you leave, I would just put you in a home. He said my husband was a good man putting up with me all these years and I should be grateful because I don't have anyone else to help me. It really hurts when your own son blurts this out. I have lived in section 8 housing before and I have a cousin who seems to understand and said I could always stay with her. I will pray about it. Thanks for all of you. I thought I would get the opposite response. I had no idea that all of you have to deal with this. Thank you for your comments.

I'm sorry to say this cherlyn but it sounds like you have a asshole for a husband.after all the things you've shared about him its sounds to me like he doesn't care about anyone but himself.have you ever thought about leaving him and trying to make it by yourself?I know that sounds bad and it isn't my business what you do do but to me you sound miserable.are there any of your relatives that you can could live with temporarily?have you ever thought about applying for section 8 housing or low income housing?I know sometimes it takes awhile to get a place but you you could live with a relative until you get a place.I can understand if you tell me to f off but you want to feel better about yourself don't you.I don't know you but even though I don't I'm sad to see you be in the situation your in.
