  • hi all just accepted a job offer that will take me to another city 8 hours flight from home where my parents live. I've been living away from home since graduating from uni, and now it feels like I should be moving closer to my aging parents. And I've just chosen this new job over another one that was about an hours flight away. The other job (the one closer to home) was not a good fit for me....

    This is BS

    im so sick and tired of my boyfriend pawning off his responsibilities to his mom and dad. We already live in their house, rent and utilities free, with our nine month old son. He never takes us to dr appointments, or anywhere for that matter. He claims that he "needs the money" and can't afford to miss three measly hours of work. He's an independent contractor and constantly gets drunk and brags...
  • My dysfunctional sister is someone who has always been back and forth to everyone's home. She has a son and a daughter and lived with just about all of our family members multiple times including me and our mother among some of her friends and others. There was even a time where she stayed with her two kids in a garage. Most of the time, everyone was just trying to help her but she usually just...
  • After posting I have no doubt of the hate and contempt for me. However before you unleash on me, I am suffering terribly for my choices. I deserve all I get. I have been wrong. There are no words to express the grief, the self-loathing, and more.My husband was and has been emotionally and mentally abusive. About ten years ago I met someone else through a series of coincidences. For ten...

    Confused Wife

    3
    Me and my husband have been together for 3 years. For maybe 90% of the time we have been together he has belittled me almost every other day if not every day. He calls me ignorant or laughs at my intelligence. Everything I do is wrong or could be done better by him. He never wants to show me affection or attention unless he is horny. I never get random hugs or kisses. If I try to cuddle with him...

  • I can quite honestly say that I have never done this before. It has taken me a lot of years to realize that I have been emotionally abused my entire life by my father and even more to realize that I needed help. I don't know what to say, as I am sure that there is someone who has had it worse than I have but lately I have not been coping well with the tenuous relationship I have with my family....

    Bad Brother

    On top of everything else.My brother asked me to take the cats to the vets. He gave me his debit card. Gave me no cash and purposely omitted giving me the pin number to pay for the cats at the vets. And said ''I text you the number''. I thought there was something suspicious this morning about my brothers misdemeanour. I knew something was up. He was hiding something? It was unclear as to what...

    I know that there is a sexual abuse forum but this could also be a family issue. This year I found out that my dad (who I am extremely close to) sexual abused my aunt when my aunt was 7 and my dad was 17. My dad has never done anything to me of that nature that I can remember. We have always had a great relationship. I found this information out from a cousin. My aunt does not know that I know...

    I'm 27, engaged, pregnant and a nurse. I was a good kid, but definitely mouthy, introverted, and distant. My mother is the exact opposite. She is the life of the party and I suspect she's less than introspective. I always just wanted her to love me for what I was and acccept me and my flaws. However, she seems bent on living vicariously through me. Im a nurse because s'e wanted to be a nurse, but...
