The Lounge Death of a Mother Mar 18 2013
23:08 (UTC)
He hasn't told him anything because he's not sure what to say and I don't want to talk to him about it until his father does. I'm trying to help in anyway I can. I stopped working for them the week before the baby came because she was going to stay home with them and not work. Not sure if he's going to want me to come back to work for him yet. I'm just watching the child to help out (no $ involved). The child and I have a strong bond. I started watching him when he was very young so I believe it is best for him if I remain in his life. The funeral is Saturday so he needs to tell him before then... :(

Thanks februarystars. Looks like a great book. I may have to get one for my mother and just leave it on her door step.

She kicked him out a few weeks ago but he keeps coming back and harassing her for money and of course she folds and gives in. He's never going to quit. Why would he? So sad! Thanks for all your replies. It really helps. I'm just going to keep my distance and not be involved because it makes me lose my sanity.

Thank you for the advice Leronia. You're right. Sorry about your family situation. Hope your doing good. It gets really hard to not let it get to me. I just have to keep my distance from my mom because she is just as mentally ill as my brother. She's helping him to fail. Sorry about my rant, just had to get it out there...thanks.

I have been staying out of it as much as I can but when something happen the renters always call me because they're sick of it too. What really set me off is that she just told me that she's going to park his truck in the driveway. There isn't any room for it so either my husband, the renters or I have to park on the street which isn't easy. (Street sweeping and live in a downtown area.) Plus we all pay rent! We should have a parking spot in our own driveway!!!

Sorry it sounds like your family too. It really sucks. I live on the property too so I can't get away from all the drama. My husband and I are fed up but can't afford to move (it's really expensive here) and I'm getting laid-off tomorrow. Plus my b-day is on Monday. I just feel so stressed out!

Thanks for the repiles. I've just started lifting weights. (Although I do work as a nanny and constantly am picking up a child that weights around 25 lbs all day.) I also run 4 miles 4-6 days a week. My weight loss has seemed to slow way down. Since I got sick a few months ago I've only lost 5-10 pounds so I decided that I need to change something in my routine because it doesn't seem to be working anymore. I have 4 months till my wedding day so I really need to figure this out. I at least would like to get down to 150 by then. Does that seem reasonable?

You're right! I've been really happy about that! (not gaining any back) :) Got my jog in this afternoon and it went pretty well. I did start to get a headache at one point because of the ear pressure but it will get better. So happy I got out finally! Thank you everyone!

Thanks for the advise! I don't want to jump back into it too soon and that's way I haven't started again but also don't want to wait too long in fear of getting back to old habits and the weight creeping back up. It's just that I don't know if I'm well enough at this point...never had an ear infect last this long. It's really affecting my mood though and I don't like it. I was feeling so great about life before I got sick and now I just feel so down. I just need to pick myself up again and do it. It's just so hard unslumping yourself. (Any Dr. Seuss fans out there? I love that book, "Oh, the places you'll go".) Sorry, I work with kids :) haha!

I'm sorry to hear about your neck injury. Hope you're feeling better. I think I'm just going to suck it up and go for a run. Wish me luck! I'm going to need it.

Sorry if I was over board on that posting. Multiple times a day is obsessive and you should tell him how you feel about it. Just be glad that he loves you that much to want to talk to you all the time. I wish you all the best and hope things work out. Texting does help.

One of these days (years, decades who knows when) you won't get those calls from him at all and you'll wish that things hadn't happened the way that they are. My dad was far from 'perfect' (abusive alcoholic) when I was a child. As an young adult I didn't want to see or talk to him. I turned him away when he'd show up at my door step. Well life goes on and my divorced parents (of 11 years) got back together and I began a new relationship with him. He passed away in 2010 and I am so glad that we got to spend the last two years of his life on speaking terms. He even visited two months before he passed away and we had a great time together. He was weird, corky, embarrassing, strange and did anything and everything that I disagreed with but he was my dad! So get along with your dad he's the only one you're ever going to have! Good luck to you, and pick up that phone and tell him you love him because he's not going to be there forever!

I'm so sorry... It will get better. I had my dog, Auzzie since he was a pup, adopted him at a shelter like you. He was my best friend for 13 years. My Dad and I picked him out together. I had wanted a dog my whole life and was so happy, I was 14 years old when we got him. He was a very important part of my life. Unfortunately, I put Auzzie to sleep August 31, 2010. It was so hard! He had a tumor and I didn't want him to suffer anymore. Then my Dad passed away September 19, 2010! I didn't even get to tell him that Auzzie was not with us anymore. I didn't think I was going to make it through all the pain but slowly everyday it's getting better and life is amazing so you can't waste it being unhappy. Live every moment to the fullest. All in one year I was laid off of my job, put my dog to sleep, dad passed away, brother went to rehab and was in and out of mental hospitals and my mom was in and out of mental hospitals also wait, one last thing! My boyfriend of 8 years proposed! Well at least there was one positive thing that happened that year! Sorry for the rant, just thought I'd share. Good luck to you! I hope you find peace in knowing that he's in a better place and is not suffering. It helped me through hard times knowing that. (Also I have a zebra finch named Loki and my dog was a German Shepard Mix, similar to your story.) Take Care!

Weight Loss 5'5" 185 and want to get to 145- who is with me? Apr 06 2012

BTW... I'm 29 years old and 5'6". Weigh in today: 182.5 lbs. Would like to be in the 170's by Next Thursday. Getting there! I'm going to a concert, Radiohead! So that's my mini goal for now. Might actually go buy a new pair of pants this weekend so i have something to wear, seeing that all my clothes are getting too big. Going to buy a pair that are too small so I'll be able to wear them at least for a month or two. I've been waiting but i think it's time. Hope all of you are doing well! Let's get on it! :)
