Honestly just encouraging him to go as far as he can w his career, good life insurance, saving as much as I can. He's high stress, high BP, takes risks, rage driver, binge eater. Put me thru hell, but GD it, I'm going to come out ahead with my kids.

So tired of being held hostage for two hours by a nursing toddler at naptime. She’s not even drinking, just wants the comfort, but won’t take a pacifier. Kid, I got shit to DO, just go to sleep and let me wash the damn dishes!

I can watch H catch himself and force what he believes to be a normal reaction to other peoples pain and hardship. He has to fake empathy and kindness. I honestly believe that he could watch someone die in front of him and it would not effect him at all.

Heavy periods and sharp shooting pains might be endometriosis. Check with your gyno and be the squeaky wheel/get other opinions if needed - my sister was dismissed for YEARS before getting diagnosed.

Should have seen the red flag when H laughed about his ExW's episiotomy in an excruciating labor and her weight gain after carrying his son. Should have seen a LOT of red flags, but those are what comes to mind today at 7 months pregnant.

Staying w H bc he loves our son & we can give him a better life together. But I will never love him. Too many lies & too much abuse. H has no one outside of my family. He's so desperate for me not to leave that he knows & pretends not to. I long to love.

Delivering my baby in a few weeks & midwife asked me about support people for labor. I honestly can't think of anyone. H & I have a horrible relationship and he is mean under stress, Mom is too obsessed w MLM to talk to, BFF out of state. I have no one.

DH is the family garbage disposal. Any leftovers too old for the rest of us to want to eat, he will - as long as they're not moldy. Right now he's chowing down on some 3 yr old chili I found in the back of the freezer and was going to throw out.

Midwife said in her career she's only ever known 1 other mama who had to have 2 vacuum/forceps deliveries. No wonder I feel so alone/can't find someone who understands. Wonder how many other mamas as traumatized by #1 as me quit after the 1.

My new boyfriend doesn’t want to remarry after his very bad divorce. Although I understand why, it still bothers me because I loved being married and would love to remarry. I’m not sure if I will be happy being just a girlfriend.

I didn't choose to be SAHM because it was important to me. My life went a way I didn't expect and I ended up here. I'm sure it's the same for a lot of working moms. I'm sick of all the judgement back & forth as if we have total control of our situations

My health issues have been getting steadily better since inlaws died. their manipulation and hate in the name of their religion was oppressive for over 20 years. glad they are gone. even dh is living a better life. sad they were such jerks.

Was 8 or 9 woke up w/ stomach ache. Went to my mom's side of the bed, said mom a couple times, she didn't wake up. Thought probably better to deal on my own. She never felt like my support or safe place. Wonders why I haven't spoken to her in 33 yrs

I feel like I missed out by not going away to college, I would have crashed and burned but it doesn't feel the same at 36 married with kids. Wish I had that life experience and parents that realized I have ADHD and needed help.

Ex H took the boys to their cousins for the day. Don’t trust the fucker but he promised he wasn’t drinking. Just found a glass of vodka hidden in the cabinet that he was “sipping” before he drove them there. Horrified and not surprised. NEVER again

Why is it that men can look like a toad, hit the gym once and deem themselves God's gift to women. Whereas a woman can be stunning, elegant, caring, intelligent, funny, etc and still not feel good enough because of some minor insignificant flaw.

What is WRONG with men? If you can’t hold up your end of a relationship then what you want is not a wife - you want a mommy. Grow the fuck up!

If "parenting doesn't come with a manual," why am I consulting so many goddamn books after trying everything that comes to mind or the minds of anyone I trust? Writing the effing manual or stop judging us!

Boring 50yo wife/mom. I've always been an avid gardener, this year I'm growing cannabis in my garden too. Turns out I'm REALLY good at growing weed! This may be the side hustle I've been looking for!

Man at the deli flirted shamelessly with the woman in line before me. When I stepped up to the register, his smile melted into a frown, his tone and body language soured, and he was utterly annoyed (maybe disgusted) with my presence. I cried in the car.

Had a very traumatic childhood. All siblings are drug and alcohol addicts. Somehow I avoided that fate. Instead, I weigh nearly 300 lbs. I'm a food addict. You can run from your trauma, but you can never ever escape it.

Just watched the school board meeting. I predict school will start back in person, and then 2 weeks later it will go back to virtual. Not sure why we're bothering to pretend this pandemic is under control.

I grew up in a family of restauranteurs, whereas DH grew up on hamburger helper. No shade, cooking just isn't their thing. But it drives me crazy that the entire family won't try ANYTHING new, and they act like box mac n cheese is the holy grail.
