Please bear with me (long post)
My husband has a close male cousin who lives with his wife in a different country. We live in the US. They retired, but they do visit their married daughter (she lives here), at least twice a year.
Lately, the wife has taken to texting me on average, four or five messages/videos/links per day, with conspiracy theories and all out fake news. She also adds her own comments about the stuff she sends.
Politically, there's a lot going on these days, but even though I'm well informed and I fact check everything, I don't usually discuss my politics on social media I detest political squabbles and I definitely don't like it when someone tries to 'bait' me with bogus propaganda.
I also can't block or 'defriend' her because we have too many people in common on social media. No one has hacked her account either. She posts the same kind of stuff on Facebook and I've seen firsthand, the hostility that goes back and forth when she tries to inflict her garbage on others.
So here's my dilemma. I would like her to stop sending me these texts with her ridiculous theories. It's annoying and I'm beginning to resent them AND her.
Since she's related to my husband's family I can't get rid of her that easily....I have to see her from time to time and her daughter lives in the same town as our daughter. How can I get her to cease and desist, without creating a bigger problem?
Ok, now I'm done venting....(deep breath)
