As an advocate and student studying health + human services this scenario is sad and I'm glad child welfare is involved.  WDYT?  Is there a break down of the system, according to her, here or is this just somebody placing the blame on others?

"I would think, actually, that having friends that are considerably older would only ADD to one's experiences ... not detract from them." ------ One of my very good friends is 82. I also have good friends who are in their 20s and 30s.

A decade ago would have meant before your kid was born.. No? You've shared not so nice things about your inlaws recently, It' not just washed up news from a decade ago, The irony is delicious and very funny, Lol! It's ok to rip your family apart but not me about my husband's family.  What mental illness does your MIL have? She shares that freely with you or are those records you gain access to too.....  Curious wannabe, thanks.

Some of my closest friends are old enough to be my mother, I've met a couple at school and I admire their tenacity.  Talk about wisdom...

"Some of my closest friends are old enough to be my mother, I've met a couple at school and I admire their tenacity. Talk about wisdom..." And yet, it's heinous of Queen to have friends who are younger than she. Oh my.

You are directing this to the wrong person.  Ar eyou on your phone again bord?  But wannabe has said that she's not friends with college girls, Is that not true?

She's not friends with college girls, but does befriend them after they leave college if they want. That's the same policy I have with college students, even the grad students who are sometimes my own age. And Jamblessed, I apologize for mischaracterizing your position! I haven't noticed you disagreeing with Thardy before on this matter, it's nice to know you're on Queen's side in the debate!

Your apology is accepted, I don't play sides here.  There's a lot I debate on face value not by who is writing it...  I wish I could observe the same things about what you write bord but that would be a fairy tale or whatever it is you call it.

Well, it is very nice of you to sit silently by and allow Thatdy to say such nasty things to Queen. And if you ever said something I agreed with, I'd agree with you. I think I've expressed agreement with Thardy's political positions from time to time.

Yeah, no. I know how old my kid is and he's definately older than 10. But thanks for pointing out how little you really do know about me and the fam. As for your other question--does my MIL share her bi-polar disorder freely with me? No. It isn't like a virus that I can catch. She can't share it. If you're asking if her family is aware of her diagnosis, yes, yes we are. As I stated previously, she's perfectly lovely when she takes her meds. When she doesn't, it isn't good. For any of us. I freely admit that.

Unlike your claims to the contrary, I have never claimed to have a perfect life. I don't think my life has to be perfect in every way to be perfect for me. Nor do I think perfection = happiness. Problems are a part of life. But I no longer let my MIL's illness affect my happiness. I can't control her. But I can control what I let affect me.  So things that once bothered me? No longer do. Because I've let them go. And when I let them go, they no longer have the power to affect me. Kind of like you and Hazel and Thardy. I know what I know and your insinuation and sniping don't actually affect the reality of my life. At all. It is just background noise, like a fly that is buzzing just out of reach of the swatter...
