I have a question and this is not a joke. My MIL throws fits and acts like a child, my 5 year old is more mature. My MIL is 65 years old, that's still young and if she does not get what she wants she throws a tantrums and this is even at work. She has said things under her breath, she has worn clothes for 3 days in a row, she decided she did not want to share the microwave with one person at work so she bought her own and keeps it in her office. She use to have little knick knacks but she took them home cause it ppl were not worthy to look at them. If she's mad about work she will brood and be mean for a week and has broken promises to her granddaughter.
On top if this she's like borderline hoarder. She will eat moldy food tearing off the mold part. The lost goes on.
Has anyone had to deal with this? I think she's got some psychological issues and my thought is she needs to seek help. I told DH she prob won't seek help then he will have to force her. Just wondering if anyone has been here.
Well she has been a threat to herself we feel before. She gets sick and it was to much work to get a lunch able out if the fridge - does that count? I feel like if we do this Wong she will make herself sick just to do it.
she's mentally ill. she can only be forced to get help if she is a valid threat to herself or someone else's welfare. He can't "make her" get help.
