Imagine if you were married to your college sweetheart who worshipped the ground you walked on from the day you met. And still treats you like a queen. However, you suffer from debilitating, diagnosed and medicated, depression. Would you feel like crap, knowing that even the love of your best friend in life couldn't save you from depression? If this sounds ignorant, it’s because I’m writing this as the person who’s not treated like a queen, and who doesn’t have the love of my best friend. But it’s a serious question.

DH got me snowshoes for Valentine's Day. He got some for himself too and we took a nice walk together out in the 2 feet of snow that was covering our fields. I was so happy he got me something I've hinted at wanting for a while and not just chocolates and flowers.

To the OP who said she wished her son would kill himself--don't be so hard on yourself. My mom was in a very similar place with my brother. He was 22 and still living at home--he never went to college and didn't want to get a job. He eventually got a part time job and blew his paycheck on weed and guitar stuff. He ate all their food and didn't contribute at all. My mom had enough and kicked him out. Best thing she ever did for him--he was forced to get an apartment with some roommates, get a job, eventually went back to community college for his business associate degree, and became a chef who is now looking to start his own restaurant. If your kid is out of high school...I'd consider it time to make some tough decisions about him, OP.

In response to a confession. I feel sympathy for both of them but really, who cares that he's not a little kid? I can't imagine telling anyone, even the coworkers and relatives I can't stand, that I hoped they'd kill themselves, let alone my own child! I'm in my 40s and I'd be devastated if my mother said that to me. I understand it was said in anger, and that the kid is a fuck-up, but damn... still... I hope that OP gets away from the exdh and takes care of herself.

In response to a confession. I don't know... I don't have much sympathy for the son. He isn't a little boy. He can see that his mom is in a shitty situation and I think he's taking advantage of her. It sounds like she's been manipulated and has had enough. My sympathy lies with her.

I hope I can heal my mental state while still living with alcoholic dh. Do you think it's possible? I can't move out yet due to financial reasons.

I can't thank you guys enough for listening to me rant the last few weeks. Some of your opinions haven't been the greatest, but I don't mind, I appreciate the feed back. Some of you have really been kind and I appreciate that too. I wish I knew you guys in real life. I could use a good support group, and I'd love to hug each of and say thank you for your understanding. This has seriously been the hardest year I've ever faced in my 47 years on earth.

Teenagers can be infuriating little assholes. Not saying that it's okay to tell them to kill themselves, but I understand the anger. Especially since it's not a young teenager in the op's house; it's a legal adult, who's doing drugs and expecting her to financially support him. I'd get the hell out of there. Leave dh and son to their own devices. I sure as hell wouldn't be paying for his phone.

I'm the mom who told her son that I wish he'd kill himself. I couldn't take it anymore. I called my sis and best friend and they came over. My sis brought my mom. I made a phone call to my doctor and he referred me to a therapist. I go in Tuesday and I'll be getting intensive outpatient therapy. I apologized to my son and told him I'm angry and depressed and I hate myself. I told him it's not him at all. He's going to stay with my best friend for awhile. I know he won't be lazy and she'll help him hopefully get on track. This has been a long time coming. I have never dealt with issues from my childhood. I'm going to go out on disability and I don't think I'll go back to that job. I'm scared, but I'm ready to make some changes and I'm ready to love myself for once.

In response to a confession. My dh not only never goes to the dentist, but he doesn't floss ever, and eats gummy-type snacks nearly every night.. Gross, I know (I don't even kiss him any more). Well he finally went the other days after kids and I kept bugging him. He couldn't even get a regular cleaning, he has to go to a specialist for a deep clean, which I think is done for people with Gum disease. Supposedly it's painful and they only do a portion of your mouth in one sitting. I hate to admit that I don't even feel 1 iota of sympathy for him. I keep a bag of flossers in a console right where we watch TV, but he couldn't be bothered to floss even as he sat and watched TV. I find it repulsive. I've flossed and brushed since I've been a kid. No excuses at his age to not take care of his teeth!
