I have great difficulty saying NO to people. Right now my biggest issue is with my ex-husband. We are divorced because he cheated on me with my sister (I know ~ Jerry Springer here I come) but seriously . . . . that was 10 years ago and we have a 10 year old son. So whenever I drop off my son with him for a weekend visit ~ he is ALWAYS trying to get me to touch him or to kiss him or something sexual. I have told him that I am married and I can't do that ~ he says "so what!" ~~ I guess for him that really doesn't matter. But my problem is that I cannot stand to see his face when I say no ~ he gets sad and it drives me nuts. I guess I still care for him but I don't like to upset anyone and because I care about him it makes it worse. I know I just have to continue setting limits but it is really difficult with him (he is gorgeous and my first REAL love). (I have been married for over 5 years now to the a wonderful Christian man and we have 2 daughters together ~~ I would never want to jeapordize what I have).

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
