MCK, you have so incredibly much going for you. You should be with a man who appreciates and shares your talents, curiosity, interests and determination. I hate it that the man you ended up with is trying to squash all those qualities and make you feel worthless.
I'm glad Guard asked this question -- I've wondered, too, how you chose your screen name.View Thread
No, she actually posted with her real username in one thread and it wasn't one I'd ever seen before. Unless I'm getting her confused with someone else, it was something like efficient01, I think. I can't rely on my memory for any of this, though, so I could be totally wrong.View Thread
Guard didn't call you a troll -- he just said that he thinks anon posters lose their street cred. Nobody has called you a troll. I have thought your posts up until now were very good. Then you did what you've accused others of doing, and more. Calling people names and attacking and mocking someone for their problems is pretty low.
I don't have a problem with Anon posters except that it's hard to keep them straight. Instead of recognizing a name, we're supposed to remember every anon poster's six digits. I don't know about you, but I have enough stuff to try to remember without having to recall the 6-digit numbers of a couple dozen anonymous users.
I can understand why someone we all know might sometimes want to post anonymously, but I don't understand why someone new would post anonymously since we don't know who you are or anything about you anyway. When you post anonymously, it's like you want to stay on the edges. It hardly seems fair to complain when that's what happens.View Thread
I think the ex would be crazy to sign a Quit Claim Deed while his name is still on the mortgage -- it would mean that he's still liable for the mortgage but he's given up all rights to the house. The bank could still come after him for the money they're owed for a house that isn't even his any more.
This whole situation would scare me to death without a lawyer!View Thread
It seems like you're being sort of dismissive of the effects of his depression and migraines and the medications he takes for them.
You said he wasn't always like this. He's obviously having a real struggle with his emotional and physical health right now, so this probably isn't the real him -- this is him suffering from depression, migraines and the effects of his medications.
If his meds have caused him to lose so much weight, and if he's still completely unmotivated to do anything, it sounds like he may need to have the medications evaluated and adjusted. He should be able to get to the point where he's on a pretty even keel.
In the meantime, I don't think it's a bad thing to have him help your daughter, but are you going to pay him for it? It's her job, and I presume you pay her for it. It's not his job, so if he helps her, it seems like he should get paid. In any case, I do think helping her would be good for him.View Thread
I think it would be risky of her to even have him sign a Quit Claim Deed without the advice of an attorney, although it may be the right thing to do at some point. You just don't know what the consequences might be of having someone sign a legal document without the legal knowledge to back it up.View Thread
I can understand why you're defensive, but you've heard the same things from a few people besides me. Isn't it possible that you keep getting that reaction because there's something to it? That maybe you're expressing anger without realizing how it sounds or where it comes from?View Thread
