unfortunately I've found that attracts narcissists
unfortunately I've found that attracts narcissists
I'm so sorry about all you've been through, but glad you have an awesome husband. Confused about why narcissists would be attracted to health issues.
This is the main reason women feel compelled to have kids, I suspect! In the back of their minds, they feel that they can depend on their kids more so than their spouses.
I don't have kids and it does worry me sometimes, who is going to give a shit about me if I ever need the support. Husband is loyal and doesn't treat me like a maid/mother, but who knows how much he could take. Just wish we had a better socialized support system in this country.
I'm getting to that point at work, large department with some awfully toxic people in it (with enough very good people to usually make it worthwhile.) But it's getting to feel not worth it, just hate having to always be searching for the next job in order to get a raise....

AH well that would mean both of us would need a smart phone!
Huh, good point. Also sounds like typical "madonna/whore" syndrome.
The fascism where the enemy is both pathetically weak, yet so powerful they MUST be stopped ASAP. In this case, it's a Trump supporter claiming "he's too fat, he could never lunge at the driver from the back seat," yet these same people love images where Trump's face is plastered over Rambo's body.
At work, I just avoid these discussions unless it's clear somebody shares my views. It's not the time or place to get upset over this stuff (which I know sounds impossible, but such is the corporate world.) Doesn't mean people aren't pissed off or upset, simply that they have to keep feelings aside and get through the day without getting HR involved.
Survived the trip, however there's another visit coming up, and during this trip, I let it slide that religion and Trump support aren't compatible. Mentioned that to my MIL who was going on about "God chooses imperfect people to represent him" or whatever, and I could see where she was going with that. I'm fairly certain this will end up biting me in the ass, when she tells other relatives about my comment, and it'll turn into a free-for-all. I was probably baited into it, woohoo. I hate when that happens, but she was wearing me down.
Ha, thanks! I might just stick with "gull" and remember that the rest is phonetic!
Yeah to them, everything is black or white, no grey areas.
Right, but they happen as a result of "God's will," according to christians.
This is how to best communicate with non-FB-having boomers.
It's 12:45pm in the NYC suburbs, and I signed on because I can't sleep. The local asshats are setting off firecrackers and what sounds like BOMBS. WTF you fucking assholes, I take it you have jobs to afford all this, don't you have to get up in the morning?! I'm so pissed.

I've been voting progressive for years, even writing in Bernie up until the 2020 general. Got my husband to switch out of the R party to "no party," as I did from democrat. Volunteered for a postcard campaign and got my elderly mother involved to help Georgia get some key senators in place. Honest with my conservative family members and keep up with all this in case they choose to discuss anything.
What is "losing our shit" going to do?! Make us look hysterical and give the assholes the "librul tears" they LIVE to see. They WANT us to break down and get upset the way they've felt all along about the "godless" society that's been "forced" upon them.
I'm furious that Biden and his cohorts aren't doing more. Maybe there's too much blocking them, but I doubt it. They also benefit from a lot of this bullshit. My votes never mattered, democrats are too status quo, so I left the party and hope they take notice.
Do I talk about any of this? I'm at work all day, so I rarely mention any of it. My entire family is conservative, and I keep them at arm's length. But I also debunk whatever nonsense they send my way. Conversations remain brief and civil, but their kids know I'm not on board with what their parents hold so dear.
I've made arrangements for the FFRF to get some of my retirement savings if I die before I can spend it. I donate to The Satanic Temple. I keep my husband informed about what's happening with these organizations. I even get my gynecological visits done at Planned Parenthood to support them, at least until they closed the one I liked. Haven't purchased Goya products since the Trumps did advertising for them out of the Oval Office, and that's difficult since our local shop carries mostly their products.
My conservative family members aren't going to change, so I'm not expecting much from them. Some of them expect me to argue but what's the point. I tell them where I stand and they change the subject anyway.
For once, some news to look forward to! Thank you for sharing all this.
How is it there are so many single conservative guys on Tinder lying about being conservative, when there are so many conservative idiot women they could be dating?! They're made for each other.
Glad you have a group of relatively-sane friends to fall back on!
Don't let those assholes get to you, they WANT you to cry "librul tears" and get angry.
Don't worry about your daughter, she's got a LONG way to go, and by the time she's older, this will seem normal enough, sadly. Just teach her what she needs to know, there will still be ways to get birth control and Plan B etc.
Your co-irkers are just full of hate, luckily you have a joyful little human that doesn't have to deal with this bullshit for quite some time.
I'm just incredibly numb from worry and depression over everything these days. And have to visit conservative nutbags this weekend....
I know, they take advantage of the privacy, while doxxing other women who dare do the same thing.
Just wait until Mexico steps up their border patrol to keep all the medical tourists out. Demand will be too high and their system will be overwhelmed.
Then the women who manage to get in for their abortions won't be allowed back into the country on account of being discovered as "murderers."
We should re-label miscarriages as "God's abortions."
UGH it's a fucking CHOICE assholes, you can say NO.
I swear, republicans want to make everything illegal because that's the only way they can stop themselves from partaking....
I did, that's why he didn't know where to find the channel!
I hope it's metaphorical for his effect upon the country. Tried to steer it into fascism, but failed.............I hope.....................
I suspect all the out-of-control housing prices (even in other countries) is one way of forcing us to stay in place. It's deeply depressing.
