After 30 yrs. of anguish with my mother in law she is at deaths door, and I am unable to feel empathy towards her or my husband. He should of stopped her behavior towards me years ago. Although, he claims he tried. Any advice from anyone would be appreciated.


My advice would be to enjoy the knowledge that she'll be off this planet soon. After 30 years, I mean your marriage is what it is. Do you think it is worth continuing on after all that? Maybe it will get better with the evil witch gone. Just be polite towards your husband. I mean, this is his mother, whom he clearly didn't want to see in any kind of negative light (probably because he was conditioned and manipulated his whole life by her). Just be as supportive as you can by saying "I'm so sorry this is happening and that you are about to lose your mother. I love you and hate seeing you like this. Please let me know what I can do for you, Honey." That's not an admission that you actually care about his mother, but that you care about HIM and his suffering right now. I'd keep your celebrations to yourself ;) Post them in here and other places on the web anonymously and just show a brave, supportive face to hubby. Maybe you two can finally try to fix a few things she broke over the years.
