Isn't it supposed to be 'you're' in option one and not 'your'?

Probably not, it makes statement one the logical choice.

No, I don't mean your MIL, your MIL is not in my thoughts and never has been / will be, I am tired of hearing about your MIL and quite frankly I don't even know how your MIL came to be a topic of discussion on this board anyway. AFAICR you just sprang her on us a week or so ago, and ever since then you have been presuming that yourself and everyone of us revolve around your MIL. Let me straighten things out: nobody cares about your MIL or your relationship with her, and we would all be much happier people if your MIL was never mentioned here again. MIL = TMI!

You're right. Which implies you are right. So yes, the heading was incorrect... but it's (it is) all the same in the end. A good reader will reader over mistakes, a bad one reads a sentence word by word, instead one should read a sentence not for words but in it's entirety.

It's the message....if it were verbal I'm sure she would have no issue understanding it.

I told you, i know. Like the girl in kindgarden who kept teasing me about my lunchbox, just kept teasing me, day in day out, and then when she needed me, she had the nerve to ask me to exchange my nice cucumber for her packaged cheese doodles , but since i was a child with much compassion, I let her have my tasty cucumber and trader her cheesedoodles for a happy meal toy.
