I suck.. thats it. My hubby and I keep disagreeing, then agreeing, then disagreeing.... ugh.. its like a terrible cyclone I'm stuck in that keeps going around and around, and around and around and around, always back to the same point... I hurt, he hurts... how to make it stop? Lets ask the magician behind the curtain...

I'm guessing it's this.

Sage, you don't suck. You are protecting your family, something that your mil didn't do.

Stay strong sister!

Ask him what his game plan is. how is he going to help his sister? Has he looked into rehab? Has he looked into places to send her? What's he going to do when she hurts one of his own kids?

I'm sure you've already asked him all of these questions.

Maybe you can find a program to send her too as a compromise?

Boarding school?

Then he can actually get her the help she needs.

Oh Sage, you so totally DON'T suck. It's just that you guys are in a sucky situation.

Stand your ground, you both know what the right thing to do is. It's just that the right things are usually the hardest things (saying no to your MIL and SIL).

You have to protect your household first and foremost. It's not without compassion that you're saying no; it is from a place of love and concern for your SIL and your family that you're saying no.

Not an easy place to be in. Sorry your family is still struggling through this.
