I'm fairly shaken up right now. This afternoon, my mother-in-law physically assaulted me, because I corrected my dog by holding her in a down position for trying to attack my other dog. She tried to force the dog away from me telling me to throw her out into the street, then my brother in law came and was going to hit me but chickened out when I confronted him. Then my BF came and defended me and they turned on him too. Finally he made BIL and MIL both leave and MIL threw a pan of dirty dishwater on my head from the window while screaming that she curses the day her son met "that hyena" (me). The whole time she and BIL were flinging a barrage of insults I can't repeat here at both me and my BF. Then they locked us outside in the yard for nearly half an hour. Luckily I got most of it on recording, but nothing I can do with it, because my prize show puppy broke her leg on Christmas Eve and needs surgery and my BF and I are both sick and need a variety of medical tests in addition to my prenatal tests as my pregnancy is high risk. We're broke at least until mid January as well, so we can't move out of her hellhole house.
MIL doesn't know of my pregnancy, as she's been very clear she wants me to birth a child to GIVE to her, and been very pushy about it. With how sickly possessive she is of my dogs who she professes to hate and want to kill, how much worse will she be with a kid? And cue the inevitable temper tantrum complete with screaming and crying and accusations of being a childish wh*re when I tell her she will not be allowed anywhere near the baby if/when it is born.
I know I should call the police, but I'm in Mexico, there's no shelters or emergency housing available, my mother lives in an affluent neighborhood but refuses to take me in without the dogs, oet friendly rents are through the roof (unless you choose an unsafe area, and in this city alone over 500 people, mostly women around my age, have been murdered this year) and on top of my pregnancy and other health and mental issues I have a bad knee (torn meniscus) that I have been unable to treat for over two years now. Plus my BIL has a law degree and lawyer friends, and the police force is beyond corrupt and unhelpful here unless you can bribe them generously, which I certainly cannot. It seems every time it looks like I'm climbing out of the hole and doing better, something happens and I fall back in deeper than before.
