Learning to be loved by my mother-in-law

My husband and I have been married for a couple of years now and we recently decided to "take the plunge" into the waters of living with his mom, my mother-in-law. When I instantly found myself uncomfortable and lost in this new living space, I was surprised and confused by my feelings. I was embarrassingly confused and mad at myself for acting unintentionally cold to her — unable to find the words to explain to my husband as to why I was feeling this way, because I didn't even understand myself.
