I'm not a dad, not a mom, but I lurk here and read because it's nice to find advice and perspective. I try so hard to be patient with my little girl but I feel like I've ended up just like my own parents- and I'm so afraid of what that will do to her.
I love DD so much and intellectually know her tics and constant movement aren't her fault but sometimes I just want to smack the shit out of her when she can't stop touching her face or me. So disgusting.
When I tried to leave H 2 years ago my son, then 14, had a meltdown, took his dad's side & threatened to never speak to me again if I went through with it. So, I stay with a man who repulses me because I don't want to lose my child's love.
I'm a nice person and will go our of my way for you , however if you decide to take that for granted, get passive aggressive, try to call me out on social media... anything besides for an adult conversation. I will fuck your shit up and read you or ghost.
Our region is flooding. Many people in our town were evacuated & lost their homes. All H can say is "but it's not flood season yet". Yeah, dipshit, apparently it is. Look the fuck around you. Imbecile.
My nephews are a bad influence on my kids. Constant unsupervised screen time, never taught self-control, consequences, volume control, manners, hygiene, or respect for adults. Takes weeks of strict retraining every time they visit.
Everyone always wants to touch me. The kids are crawling all over me, H wants to “get me warmed up,” even the dog and the cat are all rubbing up on me. I think a vacation right now would be 24 hours of no contact.
I won't tolerate cheating. Do it once and it's that much easier to do again. You don't get to pick up and put down those vows whenever you feel like it. I want my H but I don't need him. Cheating takes away the want. I divorced ExH for it and DH knows it.
I had an affair. Doing so made me realize I would absolutely never ever forgive someone cheating on me. Even if the cheaters don’t have sex, there is just way too much intimacy shared. You couldn’t do that if you actually loved the person you were with.
When I bring my kids to swim class I'm on my phone the whole time. It's not that I don't care it's just that watching them learn to swim stresses me out more than I thought it would. Looking away is the only thing that helps.
Whenever we go somewhere H makes us lock the upstairs deck sliding door even though downstairs is locked because he thinks someone will use a grappling hook to climb up, get in, & rob our crappy stuff. Yes he actually said the words "grappling hook". :/
I’m a nice, caring, giving person. I’m funny/witty & people usually seem to enjoy being around me. But I feel like I can’t make real friends. I’m always shocked/hurt when people who don’t seem that great have tons of friends/social circles. What do I do?!
I think I want to legally separate from DH, but how can you ever be 100% sure about something like this? I miss my AP terribly, and will be with him if we separate, but I worry about what a separation will do to my kids. FML.
It is my birthday today. Stupidly enough I thought SO would at least put a teeny tiny bit of effort in today. He has not moved from the sofa or lookes up from tv at all. Our DD11 is worried why mommy is sad on her birthday.. FML
The hardest thing I've ever had to do is admit that my dad was abusive. Everyone loved his charming, infectious personality but he put my mom through hell & we always thought she was the horrible one for all her bi-polar madness. He was the reason.
