I hope this helps someone in the same difficult situation. If you are estranged from an abusive elderly parent and maybe you have tried to help them make wise decisions as they age, you do not have to take on the burden of caring for them. My mom has never wanted contact, advice, help or input. But I can see the writing on the wall that if she needs major help (including financial) as she ages, she expects me to do it. No siblings. I am not taking my life that I worked hard for and upending it at any time for her. No one knows you exact situation. Caring for someone who never cared for me and parentified me as a child? Nope. No amount of guilt will make that happen. The state will look after her and that is the result of her decisions. I found a helpful forum with hundreds of people in same situation who were very empowering. I hope this helps someone else too.

An abused wife isn't necessarily a battered wife because all abusive men don't hit or shoot their wives. Abuse takes many forms. It is all bad.

Idiot boyfriend was "playing" and said I had a big butt. I have gained weight in the last couple of months. He knows I have body issues already. I looked better when I met him 6 and a half months ago. I was 12 pounds lighter. My ex did a number on me with making me feel bad about myself. He kept apologizing but I don't want to hear it. I'm hurt and pissed off. I told him I could talk about his body, but I don't! He feels bad that his penis is small. Wonder how he'd feel if I made fun of it! Freaking jerk!!!!!

In response to a confession. Hmmmm. I had to reread this post several times. Sounds like this guy is restating previous posts about wives complaining about their husbands or significant others not pulling their weight and just being a lump on the log plus expecting / demanding loving as well. ‘If the DH would just help out, then maybe they would feel better about being more appreciative and intimate. But if they (DH) don’t do anything why bother.’ Almost sounds like he feels he is pulling more weight and just being taken advantage of. Dear wife /kids maybe the lumps on the log.

In response to a confession. Sorry but he sounds like a total idiot. It's not that hard to figure out how grocery store sales work. Especially if he still doesn't get it after multiple explanations--unless he has brain damage or a mental problem.

DH and I were chilling on the couch and watching tv. It was after 10, and when he got up to go to the bathroom, I ended up falling asleep. When he came back, he bellowed, "WHAT, ARE YOU SLEEPING?" and startled me awake. I said, "Well, I WAS..." Now I'm up, sipping tea and watching tv while he's laying down and watching videos on YouTube with the volume so loud I can barely hear the tv. He did this to me yesterday. I was napping on the couch after a hard day at work, and he startled me awake by loudly Facetiming with his friends right next to me. So fucking inconsiderate.

I don't think my DH understands how sales work at grocery stores. When a certain brand of soup is on sale, it doesn't mean all the soup in the store is on sale. So he gets all crabby when it rings up full price and looks like a dumbass complaining to the managers. I've tried explaining it to him multiple times but I still think he's just really really clueless.

They say help with the kids, dishes, laundry or other household choirs and it will help the DW feel more appreciated, stress less and loved because you have gone the extra mile. In return she might even feel more amorous towards you. Yeah right, I work all day, sometimes nights and weekends plus do all that and what do I get.... The feeling all I am is an ATM for this family.

In response to a confession. I think this is true in some cases. Some women intentionally marry weak, lazy pos men thinking they can change them or control then, of make them into what they think they want. They bitch and whine about him, but I really think they just like the attention.
