In response to a confession. Okay no effing way. You get paid to write erotica? How? I have been interested in doing this for years but don't know how to start. I have a knack for this genre. LOL. Please share some info.

I was 22 when I got rejected for this job I REALLY wanted. My dad said it was because I didn't pray hard enough or go to church. He went on this tangent. It got so bad I started crying and my boyfriend (husband now) was overhearing this phone call and everything my dad was saying and was just disgusted by him. Well, long story short-I get paid to write erotica now.

I am so sorry about the 21 year old who got fired. That is so hard. It's a very tough world right now and all our young adult kids have such a hard path at work. Wishing her and you only the best! Corny but true: it was not the right job and the right one will come along.

She got a job! She's waitressing at the restaurant that used to be the dive bar that I used to get shit-faced in and sing Sheryl Crow on karaoke night many many moons ago. LOL. She's also waiting to hear back from another interview for a daytime position at a call center. She's also going to start trying to sell custom pet portraits, she does an amazing job of capturing pet 'souls' in pencil and ink. She makes them as gifts sometimes, and I've been telling her for years now she should try to sell them. So we'll see.

OP of DD21 got fired post here.... I cannot believe your mothers, guys. That's AWFUL! Just crazy bad. DD got fired because she "seemed uncomfortable" at the job. They didn't even let her finish her training, and she really liked it there and said she didn't feel uncomfortable at all. I'm not gonna give her a hard time for that. If she'd been late too often or something I would have admonished her, but I don't believe she deserved to get fired. I think somebody's sister or kid or cousin needed the job, that happens a lot in small towns. Now back to applying to everything under the sun. *sigh* She applied to more than 20 jobs before she found the one she just got fired from. I just feel so bad for her, she really is a smart responsible girl and works hard.

Flutteryby, here's why she had access to my home. The day I moved into my apartment, I went to the grocery store while she stayed behind to help unpack boxes. What I didn't know is that while I was gone, she'd taken the key to the hardware store and made a copy. I didn't find out for a long, long time, until the day I ran home at lunch and found her there, going through my things. I promptly took the key from her. It was only from eventually running into these guys that I found out what she'd been telling them. All those nights I cried because I thought they just weren't interested in me anymore :( I went no contact with her after I found that out. I ended up marrying the first guy who asked (BIG mistake) and she wasn't invited to the wedding.

In response to a confession. Did we have the same mom?!?! Mine did this too!!! She also did it with guys I dated. I was supposed to go out on a date one night and ran to the drugstore in the afternoon. Apparently the guy called for directions while I was out, and she told him that if he came on our property, she'd have him arrested. Also, I wasn't allowed to give our number out to just anyone - they had to be "worth it," whatever that means. But SHE would put personals ads in the paper, pretending to be me, and include our phone number. Then the guy would call and she'd first interrogate him on where he met "me," berate him, tell him that she was (my name) and he was lying. Even when I got my own apt, she'd let herself in when I was at work, listen to my messages and call the guy, or answer the phone, and tell them that I was out with my "boyfriend," or I was living with another guy, or I was engaged.

I'm 48 years old and a side sleeper. The last few months I've been waking up with arm pain, burning, tingling, numbness etc... Is there a pillow any of you can recommend? Or anything else you can recommend I do? Doctor didn't do anything but prescribe me 600 mlg motrin. I've had 1 chiropractor appointment too.

Nicer than my mom too. When I was 18, I had my own car. I had lost my job due to being bullied by a supervisor. Mom verbally abused me for losing my job, saying I was good for nothing and never amount to anything. I applied for many jobs right away, I wasn't getting any calls. One day she bragged to me that jobs called and she cussed them out, telling them never to call again or she'd have them arrested for harassment. She was putting me down for not having a job, but when employers called she was preventing me from getting a job.
