I love my wife dearly. But her degenerative illness sometimes makes me feel like I'm the single parent of four kids rather than the coparent of three, and that's been happening a lot lately. I'm so exhausted and feel so alone.

My sister has instructions in the event of my untimely death. She is to take control of my secret credit card and pay it off (sorry but she can afford it), go into my fb messenger and delete messages from a certain guy and burn my “diary”

DD15 seems to think I can read his mind, and he is SO RUDE to me when I don't know what TF he's talking about

DS17 is ranked #1 in his class of 662. Overheard mothers griping about him because he has a BIG lead over #2, and he's not the stereotypical demographic. Their heads would have exploded if I told them the truth - that he's doing it w/o even TRYING!

I'm not blinded to her faults but, while DW is FAR from flawless, she's still MUCH better than I deserve.

I don't think younger folks can understand the impact 9/11 had on us. At lunch w/DH, 9/11 came up and, even 20 yrs later, not being in it, and not knowing people in it, DH still choked up too badly to talk. In 30 yrs, the ONLY day he openly wept was 9/11.

None of my In Laws work. They're all on disability for various reasons. Yes, every single one of them. They hold birthday parties at random times such as 1 pm on a Tuesday. And then get annoyed that I never come to anything. Give me a fucking break.

MIL is out of money. I am the only one working. I am NOT financing her crazy alternative medicine habit. DH better tell her to check herself. I just did - he needs to say it too.

SM is the only place I can say it -- I need sex. I need the best sex I ever had. I need it with the guy who gave it to me. YES, there are tons of REAL problems and I'm ashamed. But I'm OBSESSED.

Moved to Texas a year ago. We don't like it but really no other option for my husband's career. 23 years to retirement. **sad face**

I got remarried in Vegas bc DF and I didn't want any fuss. I lied. When he's asleep, I get a glass of wine and find my old wedding dress and pictures from my church wedding and have a good cry. If I could fit in it, I'd masturbate in it too.

Hubs seems content with our vanilla, vanilla life. Doesn't know I did everything, and I mean everything, for that one who got away. And he's got 100s of photos of me (happily) doing it. Woah, telling me smth.

Sister started calling her MIL & FIL “mama bear” and “papa bear” and refers to those nicknames when talking about them to people outside of her family in law. It makes my skin crawl.

My 19 year old son says we are not a real family and never have been, and he's made his peace with that. There are 3 of us, and we've never had much money, but I don't know what he means by that. It breaks my heart.

DW says I'm being a big baby by "giving her the silent treatment". What she DOESN'T tell you is this is after she specifically asked for my opinion, then mocked and ridiculed me for it - and it became obvious that was her sole purpose in asking me.

It's not widely known, but allowing yourself to get hit by a train is a common method of suicide. DH had to quit his job with the railroad after the 2nd time because, even though it wasn't his fault, it tore him up to know HIS train killed those people.

If people knew how hurtful it is when they see me but pretend they don't... Would they still do it? I wish they knew that I go cry in the car afterwards.

Social anxiety is like this. I dread going anywhere I've been invited to go. And often make excuses to get out of going. But I also get sad when they stop inviting me. So basically I suck and I know it, but feel helpless to change it.

DH says a lot of snarky and condescending things to his sister regarding her parenting. She then tells people that I've said those things. It's not fair because I intentionally keep my mouth shut.

As a rare treat to myself, I had one of my unique watercolor paintings made into a custom throw blanket. I absolutely loved it. Then my friend went and copied my idea and had one made almost identical for herself. I am so pissed, I want to ghost her.
