Anger

Who the fuck do you think you are?  Do you think you are the only one experiencing pain and suffering?  Do you think only your story is worth being told and listened to? Not too long ago, I dipped back into Chump Lady months after I threw a bitch-fit and decided not to ever go…

Shit Situation

“I don’t want to be viewed as a victim,” she says, “because I don’t think I am. I am a woman in a shit situation, but it’s not unique.” ……………”I’m a woman in a shit situation, but it’s not unique.” Tell me about it.

I Did Divorce Better Than You Did (or doing) Divorce.

In a series of recent experiments, we found that people who endured challenges in the past (like divorce or being skipped over for a promotion) were less likely to show compassion for someone facing the same struggle, compared with people with no experience in that particular situation.

Doctor Foster

If you have been cheated on, you should watch Doctor Foster.   The first season was a bit triggering.  The second series is now available on Netflix, and it is two years later.  So far in the first episode, the ex-husband is as much as a cheating prick as before.  He comes back from being away…

According to this website, I probably had an anxiety attack instead of a panic attack, although my physical symptoms at that moment were more aligned with those of a panic attack.  Both have been foreign to me, even though I am familiar with anxiety somewhat.  Actually, I believe it is in my DNA to be…

Although I still do not have my alimony (It looks like he is not going to pay a…

Age Discrimination

Apartment Living

Now that we (the children and I) are out of the house that my ex-husband chose and bought (without any of my input), we are living in an apartment.  An apartment miles and miles and miles away from him, his whore, and his toxic family.  According to Realtor.com and Zillow, that house is 3500 square…
