Do you ever feel all different emotions at once, like this? And you feel like doing this? And people say you’re just So you listen to some music: Then you feel like doing this to your boss: But I wouldn’t advise it, unless you want to get fired. But whatever you do, don’t ever do…
Difficult Weekend and Week with Our Daughter
I’ve had a very difficult weekend with our daughter. She had a temper tantrum because I wouldn’t give her any money. She did her usual behaviours, which she hasn’t for a while. Things were getting better – so I thought. My nerves were very raw all day. I cried my eyes out that afternoon, and…

I was explaining the incident with my parents’ neighbour to my mother-in-law this morning and she asked me if I should see my psychiatrist. I told her that that wouldn’t fix this. She told me that if something like that happens to her, she’s feel bad about it for a couple of days, but then…
My Parents’ Neighbour and Anxiety
My mom and dad’s neighbour is so nice. She took my sister to the hospital at 2 am a while ago when my dad had to go by ambulance. But something she did on Saturday really got to me BIG TIME. My daughter and I ran into her at the store and got talking to…
