  • I feel selfish...

    Thursday, January 13, 2011 | A Venting story

    I am having a really hard time deciding the right path for me in my relationship.  As I analyze the reasons why I am unhappy and the decision to move on, I feel selfish. 
    This man's need for love and affection is so overwhelming that I feel like I am suffocating when I spend time with him now.  He needs the intimacy every moment we are together, whether my daughter is in the room o...

  • And here we go again.....

    Wednesday, March 20, 2013 | A Venting story

    Nothing surprises me anymore, but it always hurts just the same.  I keep trying to shut it all out.  Just tell myself to et over it.  But I can't turn it off.  I'm not numb.  I'm not "used to it" (even though I should be by now).  I still care.  It still hurts, every time.
    Today I was in a relatively good mood, H was off from work, and I always feel a little bet...

  • Little green monsters everywhere...

    Monday, July 22, 2013 | A Venting story

    Incredibly ironic. It seems like everywhere around me women are popping up with uber cute baby bellies and I'm just over here like hey look at what I did with this yarn... >_>
    All around me at work there are women finding out they're pregnant or going through IVF to get pregnant. What really bums me out is that last week my friend at work told me she was pretty sure she was pregnant. And th...

  • The prodigal brother

    Thursday, September 19, 2013 | A Venting story

    I spent most of the day puttering around the house, unpacking boxes, washing things and putting them away, doing laundry, and looking out the window every time a car went by or a car door slammed or a shadow passed the window, thinking that my brother was here again.
    I got a lot of things done, including washing all the blankets I brought with me from Maine and the dishes I'd packed, and was exha...

  • To sum things up...

    Sunday, October 13, 2013 | A Venting story

    I am a disabled, single mother, dealing with the needs of a 14 year old, bi-polar teenager, as well as financial bankruptcy/foreclosure of my home, and relocation, being thrown into single care of an elderly parent with severe medical issues and a home to care for and support while she is in a nursing home struggling to recover, while my two brothers struggle to manage to take care of themselves,...

    Sunday, November 24, 2013 | A Venting story

  • Getting the Girl Therapy and Psychiatrist help

    Monday, December 2, 2013 | A Venting story

    6 years I have been getting "treatment" for the girl She is almost 15 now, and we have moved, so all the providers have to be acquired all over again - and all the explanations, theories, etc., have to be give. 
    She is affected by the move more than she knows - she is in a different house, different neighborhood, different school with different kids and teachers. She just started high school...

  • The girl didn't come home from school today

    Tuesday, December 3, 2013 | A Venting story

    She has always come straight home or texted me to let me know where she is going to be 
    but not today.
    Today she decided to stop at a friends house and didn't let me know and won't respond to my messages. I don't know when she's coming home or if she needs a ride. I don't know whether to make dinner or not.
    I can't help but feel that this is a response to the tension that has been between us...

  • Different feelings

    Sunday, January 19, 2014 | A Venting story

    I have so many different feelings about the things that go on in my relationship.  We've been together about 6 years now.  In the beginning, he was great.  Over time, he let his jerky, mean side show.  I've also realized that he's an addict, mostly to marijuana and Vicodin.  We've had many arguments over the years about his marijuana use only because of the amount of mone...
