Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Monster in law Dear Morning Crew, My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years. Three years ago, my mother n law became ill and told us that the doctor said she could no longer live alone. We decided to move her in with us. That’s when her true colors came out. She is manipulative and evil! When my husband is home she pretends she is so sick and weak, but when he leaves, she get around better than me. She cooks for herself and does anything she wants. She has her family come over anytime of the day and sometimes they drop their kids off. She talks about me constantly and tells her family that I am evil. My husband did talk to her but things got worse. She told me that she is never leaving, but one of us has to! I love my husband but I am so unhappy. I’m thinking about leaving. Please help me. What should I do?
