[ ADVERTISEMENT ]
The original poster can't really detail it all in the story but more than several people in her life have acknowledged her MIL as being a narcissist
The OP just cannot deal with the cat allergy issue, so she had to get an epipen from a doctor due to the severity of the allergy
And the comments from other redditors roll in...
OP's MIL and her partner does not look like people worth visiting
Allergies are exacerbated by stress which the OP's MIL loves to pile on
When you no longer need allergy meds or an inhaler
From a redditor whose mother-in-law and sister-in-law had a big issue with the allergies
This redditor wants to know if they ever visited her in her own home
Mother-in-law can say whatever she pleases but the OP still has the right to decide if she wants to go
The OP should be careful if they should pay her a visit
From a redditor whose mild cat allergy started in their 20's
This redditor is suggesting what the OP should do and say in response
Allergies of all kinds, including allergies to cats, can appear at any point in one's life. However, the effects could not show up for several days after the cumulative exposure.
The fact that the OP's MIL thought she was faking it is just not encouraging. In fact, the OP wouldn't be blamed if she decided to stop visiting because it's her life at stake here.
