“My nursing supervisor is in her late 50s. She told nurse mom of a 6 week old who just came back that she is not to come back until the baby is 16 weeks and that she will still get her salary. Supervisor won't get a penny more but will work double. Tears.”
“I’m sick of my kid.”
“my three yr old is watching his remote learning videos at 8:30pm while eating doritos while I sit next to him and do my remote working....whatever. Routine is dead.”
“This quarantine is making me realize how little value anything I do outside my home has. I feel so forgotten and unappreciated. Thinking of quitting my entire career when this is over.”
Therapist says i don't communicate my wants and needs enough, not giving others a chance. I say ghosting me in a time like now, when he knows I'm scared, is unforgivable. My son and i deserve more. I hate myself for missing him. I need to be strong.
Yes, at the grocery store today it looked like I was hoarding. But I have two men and a growing boy to feed. The men are both immunocompromised so I bought a month’s worth of groceries and we’re all staying home until May.
A nursing home doing all the right things to keep people safe (checking staff, no groups, no visitors, etc) now has 66 sick. freaking out over my mom in a place taking the same steps (so I can’t visit) feeling like all this caution doesn’t even matter.
I sometimes forget what’s going on, and feel ok. Then I get an email about e-learning or Zoom play dates, or I check the news and see the numbers of deaths, illnesses, and jobless creeping up, up, up... and it all comes crashing down again.
Friend is due soon and keeps making comments that she is doing things so she “won’t be tied down” by her baby. Feeding choice, childcare choice, having her MIL move in, all so she “won’t be tied down”. I’m beginning to think she has never met a baby.
Want to scream. Throw things. Burn his shit. Cry. Get fucked up. But ill play cards with my d's like I'm okay bc he deserves that. I have to be the sane/ here parent. I hate this. Why can't ah be fucking sober?
I wish I had taken SO up on his suggestion that we break up and I go back to my parents house rather than staying here and trying to make things work with him while being away from my family during this crisis.
I hate that I’m stuck at home with my husband. Not only can I not see my lover, but I can’t talk to him anymore either. Sometimes I feel like I’m never going to see him again and I will just die without having sex ever again.
11 yr old was "crying" loudly over having to go to bed after playing fortnite all day. Almost waking his baby brother up. Lost it , lost it and told him if he continued to add to the stress we are all already feeling. I will send him away. Not sorry.
I've made plans my entire life and finally everything is coming together. I even just published a book. I work in computers and for once I actually love my job. Finally things are going good. Now the world comes to an end :P
I hate my husband. I can’t wait until the Corona virus is a thing of the past and I hope it’s soon. Being in the same small apartment is wearing on me. He’s so unpleasant. Filing for divorce as soon as the courts reopen.
DHS sister once told me all about how she wanted a corgi ,couldnt get one because of her bfs allergies. When I asked her about it a year later she said she had never ever told me that. I'm known for my memory on other peoples lives. His family is weird AF
I used to think cheating was black & white. But now that I’m in a loveless, sexless marriage things look a little different. I could leave but we have little kids & he’s not abusive or terrible so everyone would think I’m awful. What am I supposed to do?
We were living apart and ready to separate until his job shut down because of the pandemic so he is back living here now. If this were a Julia Roberts movie we would fall back in love. But this ain’t no Julia Roberts movie!
I'm scared of dying, but I realize WHY--I don't want H trying to raise DD becuz he's completely inept at being a parent. I certainly also DON'T want his mother coming to help with DD becuz SHE'S the reason he's inept-he got it from HER. THIS is terror.
Obviously there are wayyy bigger things to be concerned about but one thing people don’t realize is that we healthcare workers end up constipated because we don’t have time to go or don’t feel comfortable going at work
