          Woman Claims Mother-In-Law ‘Thrives’ Off Power Of Manipulating Her Husband And Son


          March 28, 2018

          Isabel claims that her mother-in-law, Debbie’s, extreme ritualistic behavior is a “cry for attention,” and continues because no one puts their foot down.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          “Debbie is out of control because of my father-in-law, Kelly, and my husband, Dustin. Dustin and Kelly have both been enabling her,” Isabel claims. “This is just the end result of everything that they’ve been doing, and trust me, she knows how to manipulate both of them. Debbie definitely thrives off that power.”

          Debbie claims she’s allergic to almost everything and admits to engaging in ritualistic behavior to keep her home environment free of allergens. However, Kelly says that he has taken his wife of 35 years to numerous doctors and that she’s had multiple tests but she is not allergic to anything.

          “I do believe it’s a cry for attention,” Isabel says. “Debbie is definitely like a spoiled child. If she doesn’t get her way, she’ll throw a temper tantrum.”
