Sherry, I can totally relate......my brothers wife is the same way, you never know what you are going to get and so unfortunately she can hurt feelings and i've decided that 50% of the time I will like her and the other 50% of the time I wont........I basically don't say anything to her about anything, I keep it as light as possible, change subjects, anything. I know I wont change her mind and she wont change mine, so I do anything I can not to have a real conversation with her.
Though I still have to 'put her in her place' every now and then when she tries to make decisions about my mother when that is up to me and my brother. By all means she can complain to my brother all she wants (she doesn't do anything) but I wont listen to her, it would be like my husband calling my brother to complain about my mother, that would be the last thing either of them would want or do (and the stuff we do for her is not that bad, my brother agrees but my SIL........another story). Sorry I digress.
I would just tell her next time she says anything about you being a hypochondriac that you wish you were making it up and if you were you would just use menstrual cramps as an excuse b/c that would be easier to pull off. Make her look bad..........I am kind of eeevil, bwhahahah!
