I visited these message boards a couple of weeks ago, but I am still new at this.
I have shared before about how my husband and I were having problems in our marriage, and how things got worse, since we moved in beside my mother in law. And, I shared how I made alot of mistakes in my marriage, including an overspending problem. I have met some nice people online, and I have been trying to put my mistakes behind me, and get a fresh start.
But, I am still struggling, and I need people to talk to. My husband has always been very critical of me throughout our marriage. He is still out of work (for 2 weeks now), and beyond applying at one place, he has made no effort to find another job. He stays up all night, and sleeps all day. I know it would be useless to nag him, but I am getting really worried. Also, two days before Christmas, my mother in law had a talk with me, and went over all of the things she feels I have done wrong,and she told me that I was bringing her son down. She then told me that she wanted me to leave. She said she felt that her son and I needed time apart.
I am still here...it seems that my mother in law is letting me stay, at least for now. I am trying to move forward, and improve my own issues, even if that is not good enough for my mother in law. But, I still feel on very shaky ground, and I feel I need to keep talking to as many people as I can for advice and comfort.
I want to thank everyone who has already responded to me before, and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Thank you.
