    Confessions 3/2 through 3/6 March Madness. What makes you mad?
    GuardSquealer posted:
    This board seems to have gotten really slow lately. I guess I have been busy with other things also. Hopefully everyone is doing well.

    Anything specific that just angers you? My dog "Frank" angers me because he will just run through the mud like he doesn't know it is there. And then he acts all sad when he has to get a bath. I wonder if he would rather just live in the barn? But he seems to enjoy relaxing in the living room after a busy day outside.

    I also confess that I have now lost almost 80 pounds. And soon I will start eating regular food again. I recognize some of my old habits that caused me to gain that much. I hope I can control them.

    I hope the slowness of the board means people are having fewer problems in their relationships..! But I would guess people are just busy and enjoying the nice weather a lot of the country's having.

    What makes me mad?

    My mother makes me mad. DH's family makes me mad. People acting like family is nothing, and gossiping about each other, and hurting each other for completely stupid and selfish reasons, it makes me mad.

    When will people realize that when it comes down to it family is all you have????

    I would agree that this board has gotten slow.

    This is the first time I have responded to a confessions post so here goes...

    What makes me mad, not really mad but frustrated. I put up with a lot of crap from my husband, more than any one person should. If I was smart I would leave him, but I don't want a divorce. But I'm really starting to get resentful. People at work ask me to go out after work on our "Fridays" I always have to decline knowing it will cause drama in my marriage that I would rather not deal with. Everyone says I should leave him but that's the last thing I want to do, even though it's getting old. Not really looking for advice BTW just venting. If I were to post something on my relationship with all it's problems I know everyone would wonder why I was still with this guy. That felt good to get off my chest.

    On a happy note, I'm excited for spring to get here. I'm already wearing capris even though it's only 50 degrees out and with the weather where I'm at, it could decide to snow at any moment.

    Hey, I have a big ol' stuffed dog I named Frank!

    I'm sure most are tired of hearing about Charlie Sheen, but I'm mad that people are all in cahoots with his kids having been around his "goddesses," yet aren't focusing on the issue of kids being around a father who is unfit to parent at this point. If we all gave him the benefit of the doubt that he is now clean, he is newly clean and an addict who does not appear to be getting the treatment he should. I wouldn't want my kids around porno stars either, but that doesn't necessarily mean they make bad parents.

    I wonder too if the boards being slow means people are still having problems but are ashamed to post about them because it's the same as before. I know I felt that way at a certain point.
    tmlmtlrl replied to Spankyrae's response:
    Sorry this is a bit shallow compared to where you were going with this, but I'm pretty pissed that Charlie Sheen is so arrogant that he is asking for a 50% raise to $1.5 million per episode he already gets and that ultimately I don't see Two and A Half Men ever coming back...I enjoy that show. Well the last couple new episodes Charlie actually looked disgusting, and I was surprised they aired them with him looking that badly.

    I confess that DH and I are on our way home from an awesome vacation. I'm excited to see my kids! The Lord has blessed us with the best possible traveling conditions and I am grateful
    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.

    Currently what is making me mad:

    DS's dad- enough said.
    butterfly19790424 replied to tmlmtlrl's response:
    I think the boards are slow because people are posting and then the posts don't appear. I know thats happened to me several times.

    What makes me mad are people making assumptions about me or my life. Im not perfect, but who is?

    Spankyrae replied to tmlmtlrl's response:
    I am a bit bummed too about the show, because I also watch it & enjoy it. Although, his issues aside, his character was getting old for me. I did enjoy all the other stars though. It's sad that they are now out of a job (or maybe good if it opens other doors where they couldn't work on another project before)... but they all had to expect it at some point. Like you said, he looks rough on those recent episodes, so I imagine most people saw how bad a shape he was in. He doesn't even seem to be speaking his lines the same as before. Now he sounds all amped up.

    I confess the manfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary, and found a new apartment.

    I confess, though, we almost broke up today. The parking meter thing happened AGAIN and he got towed AGAIN and it just raised a lot of issues about my feeling taken advantage of because he knew I'd be able to dig him out of it, but there have been minor fights lately where he won't help me out because he doesn't want to "reward bad behavior". We've worked out a compromise, though, and it should work. I'm not mad at him, it's all money stuff, but I would be more than willing to leave him over it. All in all, today has been awful.

    I confess I'm passing my Bio class entirely due to my lab partner. She gives me all the answers to the labs, and then tutors me on the theory behind them. It's been awesome, if not a 100% ethical.

    I confess I'm platinum blonde now. I don't know how to feel about it.

    What makes me mad? Feeling ignored. Parents who are rude to their kids. Pretention. When people treat service people poorly, either when I'm the service person or just witnessing it.
    GuardSquealer replied to 3point14's response:
    I confess I think the board is slow, more so due to the system. The update is about a year old now I suppose. But it is just not user friendly or easy to navigate.

    I also confess that I have taken up a new hobby, I guess trying to feel the void that food once felt. I suppose it says something about my personality type. But my daughter started it, and now I am addicted also. But we are now into aquariums. We have 3 set up in our home now. My wife thinks we are nuts. But they all have been good deals that I have bought off craigslist. Of course I spend some money making them the way we want. But I suppose I could be spending it on something worse.

    what makes me mad??? when people talk down to me and act like I don't know anything... ugh!!! I am very frustrated with several co-workers today for treating me like I am an idiot...
    An_229252 responded:
    Yes the board is going slow. I think we have to look at ourselves first before considering format and other external things.

    I have not been on the computer much at all since last fall. I noticed that the WebMd site has made changes and I think that it complicates or rather makes it more difficult for people to find the exchange they are looking for. Perhaps even discouraging to some.

    The few exchanges I have looked at in the past have been slow as well. I think it may be due to the time of year as well. People may be busier with work or restrictions placed on internet use. I did notice that the Sexual health communities aren't as active as before, yet are more active than others. LOL

    I confess that I was very angry with my sister and her husband on Tues., 3/1. If anyone remembers the Peanuts with Charlie Brown and the rest, my sister resembles Lucys' character (with the exception of the football skits). She always has to be in control and the know it all (well she likes to think she knows all). I find that frustrating.

    My mother was having an Iscemic(sp) attack - mini stroke right in front of me. I couldn't convince her that she needed medical attention and was fearful of possibly making it worse(her getting angry) by insisting. She was trying her best to talk, form words, all she could do was make sounds of letters, unable to form words or sentences. She did manage to very slowly get out "What's wrong with me?". Her facial cordination was not normal. This lasted for 15-20 mins. So I called my sisters' husband for him to come over, my sister came as well, by then it was pretty much over. All they came up with was because mother wasn't having any large motor skill difficulties and seemed fine then, that it wasn't anything to be concerned about. Mother kept saying she's fine, she's fine, that it was just a silly or stupid event.

    I had an out of town appt the next morning, and I insisted, and nagged my mother about going to the clinic to see her doctor. I must have called her during my drive atleast 6 times to try and make sure she would do it. She said she talked with her Dr. and they are scheduling tests, yet didn't give me any other details, so I wonder if she really did it. She lives on SS and I realize that the costs may be high, plus she'll be 80 yo this yr so maybe she doesn't think it's important at her age.

    In general, I don't like it when people take credit for my work, my ideas, my efforts, my kindness, etc... It sort of feels like they are taking ME away from ME like being stripped from me of the person I am. Devaluing I suppose is the word.
    An_229253 replied to darlyn05's response:
    Oh Darlyn ... Why is she stalling. If you can get a person to a hospital within 3-4 hours of having a stroke they have a VERY good chance of recovery. By stalling, your mother has wasted her chance of keeping her quality of life. I am SO sorry. NOT going to a hospital immediately will cost more in help and care and meds in the end... (((((Darlyn)))))
