| | My Sociopath BIL
My brother in law is a sociopath. We never had to deal with him much, every month he would hit up my mother in law for money because somebody else had taken away all that he owned. He has been through 3 wifes. They all cheated on him and were to blame, not. The only one who still believes his lies after all these years is his mother, who is now dying. So unfortunately the brother is back to get as much as possible out of her before she dies because she has been supporting him for years. We always knew he had problems but the social worker suggested we read The Sociopath next Door. Talk about light bulbs going off in our heads. He is drinking large amounts of vodka and he stole most of her morphine. Now we have it locked up. I called him on it and now he is after me. Hates me with a passion. I am afraid of him but will do whatever it takes to make sure my mother in law is safe in her last weeks here. Do you think he even cares about his mother's dying? Should I see about a restraining order or let him stay until after his mothers death and then boot him. We have hid all the money and the drugs are locked up but he keeps passing out with candles and cigarettes burning. I can't leave him alone with her. What a horrible situation. Any suggestions?
