SD Death Threat
I have a stepmom friend who has an evil adult SD. She actually threatened to kill her to her face. She handled it much better than I would have. I honestly would have said, "Please try, so I can take you down first." I would have called the police and filed charges against her. That SD has to be mentally ill because no sane person would threaten another humans life. Mental illness runs in the family and the adult SD is a spoiled brat. I knew sharing this would sicken many but make a lot of you feel better. At least our lives have not been threatened.
There's still no improvements with my own SD. Still submarined in another world. But, for those who have great relationships with their DHs, letting them know what could happen with a spoiled SD where there are no boundaries may help someone stand up to them. It's all excuses and divorce guilt until someone actually gets hurt.
Please pray for my friend who was verbally attacked. I doubt the psycho SD would actually follow through with her threat and did it only for dramatic purposes. However, she needs to be in a hospital room with padded walls and no sharp objects.
That SD has also said things to my friend like..
"You are nothing to our family."
"My dad will always choose me over you."
"I can break you up anytime I want."
and of course the death threat...
The bottom line is if your DH refuses to protect you, you must leave. My friend is not leaving, unfortunately. So, she lives a life of danger and emotional abuse.
The SD isn't ignorant. I'm confident it was only to make a scene. She knows if she ever killed a person she would lose her children, inheritance and spend her life behind bars. But, still, insane words hurt. Until DHs start taking this seriously, stepmoms are in danger.
I'm thankful for the support of this group. We are stronger im numbers.
