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.

Shit

  On the Today show this morning, the topic of driving while texting came up and the story covered how people who text and/or use cell phones while driving are 8 times more likely to cause a crash.  You know what I say? These people are selfish horrible human beings.  Nothing is on that damn…

Anxiety/Panic and Making A Fool Out of Myself

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…

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…

Alimony and Wage Garnishment

My divorce was final in September 2017. Although it was stated in the divorce decree that I am to receive alimony each week, I have yet to receive one red cent. Here it is going on February 2018. I knew this would happen. That is why I refused to accept any settlement unless wage garnishment…

Wishing Your Ex-Husband Dead

When I laughed again this morning at an article and its comments (mostly the comments) my daughter said she had thought I was just tired last night when I couldn’t breathe from laughing so long and hard over the same comments. Honestly, I hadn’t had that good of a laugh in a long time. The…

Breadwinners and Power, Control, and Entitlement

As a divorcing woman, I can honestly say I am in no position to think about men, –not dating them, not having sex with them, nothing. I’m quite sure it’s projection, but when I see men in public, I roll my eyes when I believe that they think that I’m interested in talking to them….

Rage Day

What the hell does he have to be so angry about?  He cheated.  He knew the rules from day one.  We went to pre-martial counseling.  We took the personality tests and did the harmonious relationship comparisons and everything they had at the time to determine if we would be a successful marriage.  If he feigned…
