“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.”
I keep hearing everyone talking about how they've been deep cleaning and organizing their homes while they're stuck inside. I literally haven't done shit, my house is still messy and will probably stay that way. Kinda feel bad about it.
I don’t have the privilege of wearing different shoes every time I leave my house or washing my clothes every day to avoid the virus. Let alone enough clothes to change in to. I think people like me have been forgotten about when “tips” are put out there
While I would never be so bold as to tell my mother to choose me over her new family, certainly I cannot be expected to want to share my time & space with a man who beat me I until I was black & blue. On numerous occasions. And yes, my mother knew.
I can’t decide a theme for my sons birthday. Guess it doesn’t matter, we’ll probably still be quarantined by summer. I know he won’t remember this birthday, but it hurts my heart to know I can’t throw him his first birthday party.
I’m a SAHM, I’ve felt a connection with my baby since day one, I’m breastfeeding, I was lucky enough to not get PPD, I love my son more than anything. But I still don’t feel like a mom. I think I need to hear him call me “mom” for it to sink in.
Depression has hit. I try endlessly to remember this is temporary, at least we are healthy, I have a stable income & keep a smile on my face for my little ones to not notice this terrible world we live in. All I can say is I'm trying my best.
I wonder if he misses me or is thinking about me at all during this. I don’t want to have an affair with him, I think, but I would like a definitive answer on how he feels about me. I think it’s the uncertainty that’s made me the most crazy!
I’m angry with him & can’t figure out why. I guess it’s easier to feel that than admit how much I miss him during this quarantine or that I’m torturing myself thinking that he’s having a ton of sex w/his DW & that she’ll be pregnant by the end of this.
Thankful for essential workers, but annoyed at 2 FB friends who post endless memes about being essential. One is a freaking “garden associate”, other HR at HOME DEPOT. You're not essential, you work at a big chain! DH is ER RN, HE is essential.
Main reason I broke up with bf was mutual friends interference. She wouldn't stop meddling and made shit weird. Now I don't want to be friends with her either. Bf was a good guy and I just wanted to get to know him w/o her fucking rubbernecking
I had to go to my room and shut the door for awhile so I didn’t go off on dh. He came back from grocery shopping and was touching everything in the house before washing his hands or disinfecting anything. I almost lost my shit. How many times?!
As a teacher, I am trying to find interesting assignments to keep the kids learning. As a parent, I am trying to find assignments they can do on their own that won't make you crazy. I'm sorry, some days I think I am failing at this.
DH has been working from home. I'm an essential worker & can't. He used to brag about it but he's now 3 weeks in & absolutely hates it. I pretend to empathize but I'm secretly smug. That's what he gets for rubbing it in my face.
Of course I want my husband to live, but he keeps pushing for treatment that would remove his prostate. There are many other steps to take before then, ones that don’t come with a huge chance of impotence.
My friend carried on about how COVID-19 has been blown up by the media, it’s the same thing as the flu, etc. Now she’s in the hospital with suspected COVID-19. I want her to be OK, but fucking karma, huh?
