In response to a confession. I was on it for asthma and I gained something like 30 lbs or so because I was eating pretty much nonstop. I also got really bad acne. It's not the most fun medication to be on, unfortunately.

In response to a confession. You do not want a messy aging parent living with you.

In response to a confession. I gained 50 pounds in about 2 months, my body swelled up, my skin was thin, I had horrible mood swings and anxiety. My legs remained weak for 2 years after I stopped taking it.

As someone who dealt with an aging parent who lived in a pigsty and neglected himself, it was an awful ordeal and I feel for you. I got the same kind of advice - "make him come live with you!" etc. You can't force an adult to do anything. I know it was well-meaning advice, but unless someone is deemed mentally incompetent, they have the right to make decisions for themselves, even bad ones.

I've been bleeding for 2 weeks. Not heavy, but still annoying after not having a period for months. I'm 49 years old and I know I'm perimenopausal. My doctor wants to put me on a low dose of prednisone and then do a biopsy. My mom and sis both had to have hysterectomies for excessive bleeding. I just want to get it over and have one. I'm sick of bleeding on and off. How did prednisone effect you guys if you took it?

In response to a confession. Not sure what kind of people you're hanging around with, lol, but who assumes that you can't cook or do laundry just because you don't have kids?? What's so surprising about a child free person cooking dinner? How weird.

I wish people wouldn't assume I am completely incompetent about things just because I don't have kids---yes, I can cook, pack a car properly, do laundry, plan a week's worth of meals and do meal prepping, and do crafts. You don't have to have kids to learn these things, so why are so many of my mom friends surprised that I would cook dinner most nights a week?

In response to a confession. We asked him to come live with us a year ago, and he said he doesn’t want to live with anyone. He’s capable of paying his bills and answering his phone....he just doesn’t care. I told him I’ll be at his place a week from today, and that he can go for a ride with DH while I clean his apartment and get his laundry done. He said the manager has said nobody is allowed in the building, and I told him that’s not true because I already asked. He kept us away for years before he lost his house and it’s not gonna happen again. He stopped his county-funded housekeeper in March because he think everyone has ‘it,’ and I know it’s a pig sty. So now I’m paying his bills, keeping him current with his responsibilities, and will be his housekeeper. Meanwhile, my brother hasn’t called him in three weeks, and when I question him, he gets defensive.

In response to a confession. He's obviously too old to be living on his own. Can he come live with you, or another family member?

My almost 86-year-old Dad lost his home (to a reverse mortgage my brother and I knew nothing about) a year ago. DH spent three weeks cleaning the filth that he lived in (he hadn’t let us in for the past four years) and helped him pack to move out. I found him subsidized housing, did all the paperwork, and within three weeks we moved him in. This week I’ve learned his rent decreased by $35 in March but since he refuses to set up a new online bill pay password the recurring payments have put him $175 over. He underpaid his cable for eight months and he got a disconnect notice, his car insurance lapsed, and his case manager (need one to move into subsidized housing) has tried and failed to reach him for three months. He was about to be evicted due to no contact and I just spent three hours making it all better. He doesn’t think it should be a big deal. I’m at the end of my rope.
