Working just to survive. No time with my fucking family. I feel bad for having DS6. Why so he can just fucking work forever, for nothing, until his body fails?

Hearing yet another set of friends are divorcing makes me and hubby work even harder to keep our marriage solid. Feel like we’re in the minority bc we are happy.

H thought I was masturbating in the shower last night. No you dumb fuck, I was crying because I’m tired, I’m fucking stressed and I tell you and you don’t give a fuck. IM FUCKING TIRED & he’s the reason for my 90% of my stress.

here's to hoping mil is too incoherent to demand further medical treatment. dh says if he has to make the choice, he is stopping all treatment and putting her into hospice. this would be a blessing for her and him. but she is too selfish to see that.

I chose to send my DD5 to school. She needs nurturing, structure, growth, and learning I cannot provide for her at home. I feel guilty for apparently weighing her mental health and growth more important than her physical health. AHHH

I need an office, like at school, where I can send my kids when I’m done dealing with their shit. “Go to the office.” Instead, it’s just me, doing everything. FML, I guess I did not want to be a parent.

DD10 just told me for the 3rd time in the last hour that her stomach hurts. WTF am I supposed to do about it!? She gets a stomach ache every day when she doesn’t want to do something. Why do I have to hear about every twinge, hangnail, cramp? FFS!!!

I think my friend might be manic depressive or bipolar. She always makes these big life changes and is SOO HAPPY about it and everyone she meets is her new best friend, until she burns out working way more than she should and quits.

Caring for our elderly dog is becoming unbearable. She always has needs. Something has to give! She’ll have to be dragging her crippled ass across the room screaming in pain before DH will consider putting her down. So I have to keep taking care of her.

Coworker told me “I believe BIL would molest my kids” same month BIL moves into her house. Too angry and confused to comment. Now she tells me BIL did molest her DD6. FML. THAT POOR LITTLE GIRL. Don’t ignore the red flags.

My DH is immune compromised so DD7 is learning remotely. She has become depressed. Not eating, not sleeping and having attachment issues. I wish I didn't have to choose between my husband's life and the mental health of my child. I am so sad.

A close friend & my boyfriend previously dated/still friends. As we progressed, asked both of them to watch their relationship to respect mine w/him. Bf complied, close friend said wasn't her problem and ghosted me. She was the 1 crossing the line. Bitch.

Virtual school is making my kid so angry. I want to just drop it, but if I do, she loses her spot in this magnet program. Its an amazing experience when they’re in school but SUCKS virtually.

I sincerely wish I were a lesbian. Men are so utterly disappointing. Every single one. I hate that I’m attracted to them & get suckered into believe one might be different/better than the rest. They’re really just incapable of thinking outside themselves.

I’m indigenous-it’s important culturally that we have good relationships with our relatives. Charismatic Christianity has hijacked my mother and I feel like it’s colonizer kidnapping all over again. She is horrible, I can’t even exist around her!

I worked after my first baby but I will be staying home now that I have two. Covid has changed things. I am going to miss killing it at work and making my own money. I don’t want to be financially dependent.

Whenever something really good happens for me one of my closest friends goes silent. Happens every time. Then they resume operational functioning and act all happy for me. Can’t help but wonder if they actually want good things for me.

I think my husband is secretly not attracted to me anymore. Had our 1st baby beginning of this year and the extra 20lbs hasn’t come off. No time or energy to work at getting it off. He says he still thinks I’m beautiful. Feels like he HAS to say that...

I’m thinking about having “Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead!” (from The Wizard of Oz) played at my funeral. With as much as my son’s wife hates me, NOBODY will believe she wasn’t the one who slipped it onto the playlist.
