Good morning everyone.
We made it though great. Got V (the bf) to compromise on the time for dinner. He wanted to eat at 1ish and I prefer 6. My oldest had dinner at 1 with her bfs family (that was a hard one can' believe we are at the point) so we ate at 4 =). Dinner went great and he knows Christmas is at my house, LOL.
I am grateful for asthma meds because without them my oldest and myself could not breath. I am hoping the meds start working better for her and she can go back to running!!!
I am also grateful for peaceful holidays. I do not miss the years spent with my ex inlaws!!
I am also grateful the four deers that have crossed my path since I hit the one have done so far enough in front of me that I haven't them!!
I am also grateful that my son made it to counseling last week!!
I am also grateful that V and I are figuring things out and didn't give up
We survived fine. Thanksgiving day the kids went with their dad to his moms and had soup for thanksgiving meal...then Friday I cooked a real Thanksgiving meal which Mark actually paid for. It turned out ok and since Mark paid for the food I let him join us and let him take half of the leftovers home.
I am thankful Mark is behaving himself enough that the vendictive is still quiet and passive so I can ignore it...I rant about it internally later but I can manage to ignore it at the moment so he does not get any satisfaction.
April, how old is your shower head?...I just heard about a microbacterial that grows in the shower head and causes respitory problems....My asthma was getting worse and worse and when I heard about that I pulled my shower head and threw it away and got a new one....slowly my asthma is getting better.
Oh dear, Chipper, I am so sorry y'all had such a rough time.
Yikes, the very idea of your mother showing up at 5 in the morning is just ludicrous!
Chipper, how did your DH's doctor appointment go?
I may have read something wrong, if so I apologize. I think I saw that he had these episodes when he was a child (around his mom) He has not had these episodes when he was around you.....
He had an episode while arguing with his mom....
to me this sounds like she adds too much stress on him which causes the muscles to tighten up and spasm which causes the problem....since she is insensitive to you and your healing, I doubt she really cares that her behavior is deadly to her son....my prescription is little to no time with her and when you do have to be around her have a pact that when she starts pushing and adding the stresses to either of you it is time to say good-bye and go home..Even if you were there for dinner and dinner has not yet been served.
