Carin comments on Jan 25, 2019:
It sounds miserable for you! What would happen if you said "no thanks" to the books & changed the subject whenever he brought up religion? Does he really deserve to feel better when behaves so disrespectfully towards you? If you are against lying, don't compromise your integrity He's treating you like a child. Well that's all just my opinion--I know all to well how impossible it is to stand up to family members.
True love...

Carin comments on Jan 25, 2019:
Interesting--I would have thought you'd have to live together to be in a domestic partnership. How far apart are their houses & why did they decide to do what they are doing? At this point in my life I can't imagine feeling the need to get married again. Divorce is horrible, slow & expensive, & I'm done having kids. I'm happy just living with my boyfriend.

Looking for some feedback... Some months back I posted about a friend who doesn't reach out to me...
Carin comments on Jan 25, 2019:
That was how it was with my only sibling. It was hurtful & eventually I decided to just stop & wait till I heard from her....8 years went by & then she accidentally made a friend request to me on Facebook, thinking I was someone else.... I accepted it of course, but still rarely hear from her. So just consider that as a possible outcome in your situation. I was sad for about 2 years.

Carin comments on Jan 25, 2019:
Many if not most people are already unconscious when they die, so I wonder how often anyone actually recalls later the very last thing the person said.... I would think it's not often anything profound. Like my mom's last words turned out to be telling the nurse her age. & she was wrong too.
Coming to the conclusion that real love doesn't exist.
Carin comments on Jan 25, 2019:
I don't know if it exists or not, but you sound really depressed. I have depression myself, although after years of counseling, meds & some huge life changes I'm doing pretty OK. So I feel like I can recognize it in others pretty well. I hope you will take this advice & go to counseling or see a doctor. If you've already tried that & it didn't help, please consider a different sort of therapist. You don't have to be completely miserable even without finding real love.

Carin comments on Jan 24, 2019:
Jeez. I just moved here in November & believe me, it's already bad enough! One of my kids' teachers invites students to pray before tests. My son says she doesn't lead them in a specific prayer but just pauses for a while. I wonder if any of the kids pray aloud? If I wasn't planning on getting out of here in a few months I might bother saying something or asking some questions, since it seems a slippery slope to me if nothing else. This place is pretty bad--I hear they are the last state to have the confederate flag on their state flag. It's really very primitive here--for example, there are railroad tracks all over the place & no arms come down when a train is coming. There are flashing lights where they cross main roads, but on small roads like the one right in front of my kids' school there are just wooden signs, no lights, bells or anything...really bizarre.

I grew up with a European mother & spent part of my childhood in Europe. I only had to bathe once a week. Didn't know how lucky I was. I still don't think skipping a bath now & then is a problem for pre-pubescent children. They don't get B.O.

The joys of pet ownership!
Carin comments on Jan 22, 2019:
I know it's just a funny meme, but there's a way to prevent this behavior, which is very real! Many dog owners walk their dog around till they potty & then take them back inside, especially in cold weather. Since most dogs love to be outdoors, they learn to hold it to get longer walks. It's almost like they're being punished for pottying by having their fun walk ended! The easiest thing to do is have one or 2 set routes for their walk. If they're already using this strategy they may not potty by the end of the walk, but don't deviate. Go home. Wait as long as you think is safe & then go on the same exact walk. Hopefully you won't have to repeat the process too often, but keep the faith & don't deviate. & whatever you do, after they potty continue along the route as normal--no rushing home or turning around! You could even give them a small treat for pottying. Myself, I have a short route & a couple longer routes, depending on how much time I have or what the weather's like. The dogs tend to have their favorite stops for sniffing & leaving messages for other dogs. Animals do well with a little routine for stuff like that. Happy walking!

Inside the Car Company That's Resurrecting the DeLorean
Carin comments on Jan 21, 2019:
My best DeLorean sighting--my then husband & I had climbed a dirt track up a small mountain to a modest & mostly ruined castle in Germany. Looking down from the one restored tower we beheld, parked in the stone walled courtyard, a DeLorean.... I have a photo somewhere. Something about DeLoreans & time travel crossed my mind. I would love to see the DeLorean made again. Cars look too much alike these days.
I don't know what anyone else thinks, but I don't this is good at all.
Carin comments on Jan 21, 2019:
I bet we are in more danger from Trump & his white supremacist followers & appointees than from these 2 people. & why is Israel always such a sacred cow, anyway? I tend to sympathize quite a bit with the Palestinians having their land taken & being kept behind walls & barbed wire. I'm not condoning terrorism or anything; I'm just saying it's very very far from black & white & the Palestinians are suffering & dying a lot more than the Israelis.

We end up in toxic relationships because.....
Carin comments on Jan 21, 2019:
Most of us end up in toxic relationships because that's all we've ever known, even as kids, so it feels familiar. I really don't think people are responsible for what was done to them as children. And I would say that without a lot of outside help, many victims are unable to see their situation for what it is, much less to fix the damage done to them to the point where they are able to protect themselves.
