In response to a confession. So this one was mine. One of the bullshit theories my son was spouting off to me is that covid is a hoax, or else someone we know would have had it by now. (We live in the middle of nowhere). Welp, his grandfather (my XFIL) was just diagnosed with it, with mild symptoms. He and DS work together in a family business and I just saw my son last weekend and gave him a hug. I can't believe this. I'm off to google early warning signs. My kid might not get sick from this virus, but I'm betting I would, and my DH too. Not to mention our elderly neighbor that we take care of and help out regularly. Jesus H. Christ in a sidecar.

I don't know where to post this confession. My kids are grown. I'm just depressed. I can't find joy in anything. I had a hysterectomy Oct 1st. My doctor put me off work until 11/12. I'm ok being at home and dread going back to work. My boyfriend thinks if I go back to work my mental health will be better. So many things on my mind. I don't know what to do. All I want to do is run away. I'm on antidepressants, but they don't seem to be working. My mom just found out she has breast cancer. I'm going through a divorce after 28 of marriage. We've been separated since 8/17. I live 30 minutes to an hour away from my loved ones. I'm just tired.

Family is still having their party. I'm not going, not just because of the pandemic but honestly-I hate going to these damn things. It's the same screaming over each other and awkwardness. Not to mention the damn White Elephant game that takes forever.

In response to a confession. I suspect that both of our kids are Trumpublicans (LOVE that word btw!). Our son posts right wing nut shit on facebook all the time. I'd also bet that neither of them are even registered to vote (they're in their 40's). Their bio mom was on the dole all her life then decided that Dems were crazy and started spouting anti-everyone crap. I once told our son that if he didn't vote he doesn't have the right to bitch and that shut him up.

My confession is that I think my son might have voted for the cheeto. He's been spending a lot of time hanging out with one of his friends who's a trumpublican, and this weekend he came over and ranted a few conspiracy theories to me. I was so upset, I actually told him I was tired and wanted to go to bed and maybe he should go. It was 7pm. I will never ever ask him who he voted for. I don't want to know. I haven't told a single soul about this, it's too upsetting.

In response to a confession. I'm actually more angry that my family is still having theirs and trying to guilt me into spending 12 HOURS in the same room with all 20 of them bc my mom can never just be reasonable.

In response to a confession. I know I am upset that my family xmas eve will not happen this year. Oh, I know I'm lucky that we have been able to gather in the past and we always have a great time, but I'm still sad that we won't be able to this year. I can be sad and grateful at the same time.

People are allowed to be upset that they can't enjoy the Holiday as they normally would.

Parents who are cranky that their kids can't go trick or treating this year are so obnoxious. Is your kid's health worth it so that you can show off your stupid homemade costume? So effing selfish. News flash--you can give your kids candy without them having to go out trick or treating.

So here's one for the record books. I just found out that my XMIL (my kids' grandma) who's son I've been divorced from for 20 years, as been telling a fabricated version of a story for the past .. 20 years I guess! When DS25 turned 3, she had a party for him at her house. At said party, she and I got into a fight (she is the world's most difficult person, she has histrionic personality disorder) and she picked up my son's Elmo cake and threw it at the wall. Of her own dining room. In front of her 3yo grandson who's birthday it was and who hadn't even had any of the cake yet. SO! After all these years of blissfully never seeing her, I just found out that she's been telling everyone, including my kids (and re-telling it over and over at every family gathering for the last 20 years ) that it was ME that threw the Elmo cake. Jesus. I just told my son not to argue with her about it, let her tell her story... just know.. I didn't do that. She did.
