I spoke with a therapist for a while specifically about how to not blow up my marriage but deal with her.   In no un-certain terms she told me what I was dealing with was extreme and that if we could, my wife and I should move to get away from a continuing problem such as her, and just get the toxic person out of our life.   She jokingly said that if she had a patient like her, she could probably retire.   She has a lot of issues.

But funny story...

One day my FIL comes up to my wife and was telling her the normal stuff (they haven't spoken for a week, or she was being really horrible) and he goes "She's losing it.   Really!   She is starting to lose her mind.   She yelled at me for the same thing four times last night."   So my wife doesn't say anything and then he gives us this gem.   "She's so bad that I just look at her and wait for the drool to run down her fat chin".

That's a husband, talking about the woman he married.   Yeesh!

You should wear a go-pro to Christmas next year, lol.

When my wife was pregnant we bought a portable video recorder.  One of the small handhelds, nothing elaborate.   The first time we filmed something my in-laws got into an argument over why the ice cube tray didn't work in their refrigerator.   It hasn't worked since my wife was in college.  

I did use it one Christmas.  My MIL said something along the lines of she didn't want to be on video.   My FIL said "the camera doesn't want you either, believe me!"

Gone from the funny to absolute horror.   My wife took the kids down to my in-laws yesterday.   Aside from them fighting, she saw my father-in-laws TV room which usually has the door closed.   Filthy, with stacks and stacks of mail and bills piled up, so much clutter it looked like an episode of Hoarders.   He had a path carved out to his chair.   And a rifle.  A freaking rifle laying out.   In no un-certain terms is she leaving their house when our kids are there anymore.   And I am contacting a therapist to try and help me figure out the best way to approach this situation, including trying to get my wife to see their mental illnesses and hopefully they can get some help too.

Thanks for the kind words from people here, either here or in PMs.   It would just be wrong for me to laugh this off or make fun of them when it's just so twisted.   So my posting on this topic is finished.

My Ex MIL had lost her mind -- would get suckered by any telemarketer; watched Fox News and was paranoid of everything, told my Ex to get mace to protect her from me even though the Ex and I lived in the same house during the divorce and after the divorce. We got along fine ... just not marriage material. Yes, Ex got the mace and found no excuse to use it ...  nutz.

    • I never really considered myself a hoarder, but recently my wife pointed out just how much space my 'necessary', but never used, golf equipment was taking up.  Guilty as charged. I find it rather difficult to give up some of my old 'treasures', but practicality tells me to do so.  Plus if I do sell off some of my old treasures, I can buy new treasures.  LOL 
    • Day 353 Warmed up hitting some 8-irons working on takeaway/backswing, and then did a superspeed workout. 
    • I think the season's GHIN periods are good for my portion of western Washington. My home course gets pretty wet (some of my worm burner shots remind me of the Miss Budweiser hydroplane rooster tail from back in the day). Also, there's a lot of plugged balls in the fairway so I'm mostly playing lift, clean and replace. Wouldn't count towards handicap anyway.
    • This. Dude just play golf. If you have a consistent shot shape play it. Don’t think about score too much, stay out of the shit, call “The Zoo”. That kind of stuff. I’m trying to get down to scratch. I don’t add up my score until the end.   
    • 5-iron. 90% of the time it’s the longest iron in my bag. I rarely have more than 8-iron into a green on a par-4, maybe 7-iron if I’m laying back off the tee for some reason. The course I play most of the time doesn’t require more than hybrid off the tee except for a couple longer holes. It’s a short, tight course, with lots of extreme lies (uphill, downhill, and side hill) and forests/creeks/“native areas” to lose balls in (in LSW terms, a lot of black)
