Life insurance saved my daughter's sanity and life.
Larimar comments on Jun 6, 2020:
This happens so much. I'm sorry Claire also endured this. Mine was always verbally abusive and manipulative for ten years. He completely changed in that time to go from being in a band and partying often to becoming extremely religious and, of course, I'm not going to be a good christian wife. Without that belief, it's a bit difficult. It got to the point that I was walking on eggshells constantly, and in fear. Nobody else ever sees this because when we'd go out to friends, he'd gotten my favorite drinks, held my chair, everything that connotes caring. The car drive home was always another matter, however. It boiled down to one incident of him becoming hands on but I know that once it's done, I won't live the next time. I got up with my son who had thankfully walked it at the opportune time and left. I went back once when I knew he wouldn't be home, took what I could fit in my car and three other vehicles of friends that came to help and never looked back. Fought him in court for two years to get divorced and he got remarried a week after it was final. It's been 8 years I had to fight him for contempt of court 3 times to get him to finish our decree as he owed my parents some $$ and he tried to not pay. It cost close to 20k in the end because he fought everything. It all ended as I had pushed for despite him attempting to get alimony out of me or attempting to get me to trade cars and give him one that I had made all the payments for at that point in time. You don't want to know the ignorant BS he tried for. Since then he has called my parents to attempt to get them on his side. My relationship with my folks isn't the best either and it hurts me that they allowed him to actually voice these accusations. Finally my mom has told him that she cannot convince me to change anything in the decree and that it has nothing to do with THEM. She's told him never to call again. When my dad died, I hadn't heard that he tried. To my knowledge he has surprisingly honored her request. I've had to endure stalking and his attempt to use friends to get information about me, along with a long list of other insidious and manipulative tactics. They aren't good people but thankfully not everyone is like that. I'm glad Claire has found her Shane! She'll heal and be fine. The world is sweet! All we can do is not let the bad ones in and appreciate the good when we find it.

On both kids, I've given them the policies as they've matured. Signed it over. Mine wasn't as large as yours was but it's always a good idea. And divorces can get ugly, mine cost over 15k by the time it was said and done but I had to take him back for contempt THREE times.

Larimar comments on Apr 14, 2020:
I also can't be around smoke. Enough allergies as it is. I don't bother to date anymore. The prevalence of religious fanatics, hard core GOP, the ones only wanting to hop in the sack, and the druggies is not to my preference. I thought that I was being pretty open minded just looking for someone to get to know first, a little intelligence that would work as a team in time. Guess that was to much to ask for.
Searching for a soulmate is futile. Your thoughts?
Larimar comments on Apr 12, 2020:
I'd be happy with someone respectful, willing to work as a team, someone to bounce ideas off of and share thoughts without recrimination. I'm more concerned day to day with myself and doing what makes me happy. I'm totally ok by myself. There's no less in being single than there would be with a partner.
When did you first see who your child is as a person?
Larimar comments on Apr 8, 2020:
Claire sounds like me. My daughter was precocious and has most of my intelligence but lacks my non ability to see that I may not be able to do something. I can always figure it out and get it done no matter what. But she read at age two to the point you could show her the word in any book and she knew what it said. My son, however, has my mechanical ability but he tends to be lazy. He didn't do much with words for a long time because of repeated ear infections and hearing loss due to fluid. They're fun people though to be around! I think you always see them as a person but it takes awhile to figure out who and what that person is.

Is anyone else watching the new TV show "Unorthodox" on Netflix?
Larimar comments on Apr 5, 2020:
Watched the whole thing at once on Netflix. I enjoyed it. But if everyone would just be open enough to new to them ideas and other points of view I think it would help everyone. So many are stuck in religion and I just see them all as restrictive and accusing "others" of what they are themselves are guilty of.

Spring allergies, a cold or COVID-19?
Larimar comments on Apr 2, 2020:
The first of those two vaccines is brutal. I had it two years ago. I don't feel pain like most people (I've had a hole in my colon before and didn't feel it) but that vaccine site hurt...badly! It felt like the flu for about 3 days after. You have my sympathies. That's more than likely what you've dealt with. I came home today with low grade temperature. It's affected by Tylenol so I think it's only allergies. Bit of scratchy throat.. I'm doing Vitamin C and zinc and keeping an eye on per doc's instructions. Can't return to work until temperature free for 24 hrs.

Those that only see their own impact and not consider others...not my type of people. We need to get rid of the making a profit from healthcare.

I use a thyroid med that's been around over 100 years. But docs will attempt to tell me that it's unstable, unreliable, and impossible to regulate. They're wrong. Big pharma can't patent it because it's a natural product. (pig thyroid glands) They convince many that synthetics are better. But natural product will keep my bones full of calcium. They'll try to scare folks away from it and I have to fight to remain on the only thyroid med that worked for me. They used to dose folks by cessation of symptoms...now they rely on a subjective blood test using a pituitary hormone as a basis despite the fact that they don't bother to see if there is proper conversion by the body or if there is damage to the pituitary. Because if the pituitary isn't working right or the body doesn't convert correctly....synthetics don't work for shit and that blood test is unreliable.
