I agree with this take, but I come from a hot-headed family where this sort of thing is done by men and women, so I don’t see it as toxic masculinity but as a frustrated way to make him feel some of what his daughter has been put through. I hope he gets probation and community service and maybe anger management, and I Read more

Except for the missing cats (one is absolutely refusing to come inside or be trapped, but I know where she is; I’m beginning to fear the worst for the boys - I live in mountain lion territory), the sheer level of escalating drama is almost getting to the point of amusing absurdity. I know Kafkaesque is overused, but I Read more

My FIL was a nice, sweet man. My MIL was a horrid bitch so I didn’t really get to know him until after she died, but I liked him and sent him cat photos on the reg (he LOVED cats). My husband doesn’t seem to fathom that I could be mourning his death, too. Not in the same way, of course; but I still lost a friend.

I am so sorry you are going through this too. I too am disabled; I’m in Stage 3/4 kidney failure (it’s fluctuating between “not good” and “pretty bad”) and have a bunch of other weird shit wrong with me that requires expensive medicine that’s currently covered by insurance through his job (I do have Medicare). Moving Read more

I’m the one who got my brother to see a therapist. I believed he was a self-medicating bipolar (there’s a lot of serious crazy in my family, so I’m not just doing Diagnosis by Google). His therapist was helping but for some reason Rx’d Vyvanse, which causes delusion disorder in people with his disorders. SIGH. So if I Read more

Thank you so much. I really don’t know that many people here (he moved us to a fairly isolated area) and I’ve just felt so alone. I have a brother, but he too is off his meds (he believes his neighbor is moving walls and toilets in his house, and rewiring it) (I wish I were making this up) and my SIL is pressuring me Read more

You are absolutely right. I’m just in a kind of shock and running off at the mouth (fingers?). I’ve already asked two friends about the lawyers they used in their divorces (and got him to agree to pay the fees for my lawyer). I just have been walking around in a stupid shell-shock fog while at the same time Read more

You make good points. As I said - I’m open to anyone that isn’t Biden; I just have a fantasy Team Angry in my head of W/S or S/W that would combine their ideas with actions to make some changes. I can dream! Realistically, Sanders is too old to run for President after a triumphant and successful two terms of Warren; an Read more
