In response to a confession. It’s an extreme sport. But no one thinks the food was far too little? Whew.

In response to a confession. No, but that two hour long practice seems kinda extreme for 6 year old kids.

We live in an area that has a lot of lakes, and you wouldn't believe the number of boating accidents that happen this time of year because of drunk teenagers. The DNR officers do a good job of patrolling the water but it still happens quite a bit.

Ds will be 18 on the 20th of this month. He's the one who's been depressed since him and his girlfriend broke up in March. He tried Lexapro and it made him really tired. He just took his 1st Prozac pill last night. I hope it helps him. His grades and everything have gone downhill. He still goes to tbe gym, but nothing can shake his depression. I suffer from depression too. He has 1 more year of High School to go. I hope the next year is good for him and he realizes all his gifts.

I Fed my 6 yo this food all day before her 2 hour sports practice: green protein smoothie, waffles, oatmeal, cheese and crackers, granola bar, applesauce pouch. And water. Notice there’s no lunch in there. Does this make me a fucked up mother?

Everyone's talking about guns and gun safety lately, and that's a good thing. But what people don't talk about is pool and pool safety. A friend of a friend just lost their 2 year old son after he drowned in their swimming pool. People, if you have a pool, you need to be insanely vigilant. You need a fence around your pool. Period. I don't care if it's not the law where you live. I don't care if it doesn't look good with your landscaping. Do it. No excuses. You need an alarm on your pool. No excuses. You need locks on your doors that your kids can't reach or open. No excuses. You need alarms on your door so you know when it's opened. No excuses. Every, single one of these drowning deaths could have been prevented. Every. Single. One. No more excuses.

My best friend is always cold and I am always hot. She had a pool party yesterday for her ds's bday. It was 83 degrees in her house and 100 outside. I turned her air to 75. She has turned my heater up at my house before. We've been doing this for awhile now. She called me last night at almost midnight and was like, "Bitch, I'm sitting on the couch freezing and finally figured out you turned my ac down!" We could not stop laughing! It's nice to have close friends like this. I have the best friends!!!!!

In response to a confession. I started suffering from depression when I was in college. It wasn't because of a boy, but my parents still wouldn't have put up with that kind of behavior. Depression doesn't make you act like a total dick. It just makes it hard for you to feel any pleasure in doing things, makes you distracted, makes it hard to sleep or wake up, etc. We as a society need to distinguish between depression (a real condition) and shitty behavior. You can't blame depression on everything. I've had clinical depression for years and I manage to not be a total bitch to everyone around me.

In response to a confession. I'm so sorry that you suffered from years of depression and didn't get the help you needed. I hope you did on your own. I never said counseling was an indulgence. The original OP said her DS was exhibiting the changes after a teenage breakup. She didn't indicate that he's suffered from depression before. What IS an indulgence is if the OP allows her son to lie, get high, and generally be a brat because of a girl.
