In response to a confession. My MIL is the same way! My DH recently joined the military, she was so mad cuz he moved away and demands we move back there when he gets out (not happening lol). She constantly texts him saying he made her sad because he did/didn't do something that doesn't even affect her. She manipulates him, she's very mean to me cuz I stole her boy. I'm pretty sure he was her retirement plan and him getting married to me ruined it for her. She tried to stop our wedding. I went NC with her recently, he is LC. She throws tantrums when he doesn't reply. She said awful things to make me go NC, but she acts so innocent "I have no idea why she blocked me".

In response to a confession. One of the main reasons we keep my husband's mother at arm's length is because she hasn't quite grasped this concept. She wants to be the only shining star in my husband's life. If he pays attention to his children or me in her presence, she will get angry and make a comment about how sad it makes her that she's being ignored by him. She's an insufferable narcissist.

In response to a confession. Please look into some online resources that you can get for your kiddo. The earlier you help him, the easier it will be for him. NEDA's website is a good place to start to find therapists in your area. If there are no therapists in your immediate area, Skype/Facetime therapy sessions are usually available. I'm sure there are dietitians they can recommend to you as well since you mention he's got food sensitivities. I wish you the best--I wish my parents had gotten me help as soon as I started struggling with my eating disorder so it wouldn't have had time to entrench itself so much.

OOoooooooh yeah, buffets are the nastiest! I've seen people openly cough and sneeze over the food. I've seen people cough and sneeze into their hands, then use their hands to pick something out of the buffet. I've seen kids stick their fingers in the food. I've seen people taste things off a fork and then dip the fork back in the food tray. I've seen kids take a bit of something and then toss it back into the buffet area. People are GROSS.

My 10yo has an eating disorder, but I don't know how to go about getting him help. He has always been greedy about food, to the point of throwing up, even when he was first born. I think it might have to do with the fact that I didn't get to bond due to him being in the NICU alone for 2 months? I could be wrong. But he will lie, cheat, and steal, to eat anything that has been denied him. He is gluten and lactose intolerant, so I have to limit his intake of things and I have found wrappers of stuff he can't have hidden in his room. He also eats what he can't have at school, and he'll harass my 4yo(no allergies) to the point of tears to get at his food. And he resents me terribly for the limits I put on him. But we live in the South. Land of obesity. People here don't do "eating disorders". So where do I start?

In response to a confession. I think your way is totally normal. That's what most people I know do.

My son has a wife and they have a baby. In my view, that means that I am no longer the most important mother in his life. Mother's day for me might just be a phone call, but he'd better do something really nice for his wife. Especially since the baby is too little to do anything herself. So I'm wondering, for those of you who might know- is this the normal way of things or am I an anomaly? I completely expect him to cater to his wife on Mother's day, not his mother. I mean, it makes sense doesn't it?

My sister in law was Face Timing with us for Mother's Day and I can just say one thing: I'm so glad I am not a mom. There's a reason I chose to not have kids. I really really just like that I can sleep in whenever I'm off work, don't have to deal with the screaming, sibling wars, and just general stuff that goes along with having kids. I know SIL loves her kids, but she also gets frazzled easily and she told me she envies people without kids sometimes. This is why I like that I just have nieces and nephews--I can enjoy them on my terms and give them back when I'm done.

I just found out I am pregnant and while I am delighted, I'm scared. With my sons, I started sewing blankets and bibs right away. I found out I was pregnant last year and started on a new quilt-I finished the giraffe's ears and started on its face only to have a miscarriage a week after finding out. This time I want to start on the baby's quilt and its little bibs but-I am scared. I don't want to start sewing, putting my hopes up only for them to be dashed. I am going to wait until I see an ultrasound, until I SEE the baby in me to start a project. Last year's quilt was finished and donated as a way to heal but this time I don't think I could start it until I know my baby will be ok. I won't even design the projects until I know and it hurts because I have been on guard, checking for blood and cramps. So far so good but...I'll just wait

In response to a confession. I think this is just a troll. I really f*cking hope so because this is (if it's true) seriously messed up. And a call to CPS needs to be made. Clearly this kid has mental issues that the parent is not dealing with appropriately.
