Hmmm, green with jealousy, or green with envy, or just plain green around the gills? I jest, of course, but jealousy is no joke!!! I suffered with that for many years because my now EX-wife cheated on me. Later on, much later, I was also cheated on by a girlfriend. But wait, just how far back does this underlying jealousy go? If my memory serves me right, and that is a big IF, I believe it goes back to junior high?
This one girl, who was very popular, asked me, lil ole me, out? I was excited to the max! She told me where to meet her for a movie. We went out for almost three weeks when I was told she had a boyfriend from another school, and had been this guys girlfriend for two years. At first, I didn't believe them. But when one of my best, most loyal buds told me, I knew it had to be true! So, one saturday when she told me she would be busy at home with mom, so we couldn't go out, I just had to see for myself. I knew she had a pool, she had invited me to swim in it at least twice I can remember. Well, as I neared her house, sure enough there she was, all wrapped up in this guys arms. When she called me that night, I told her we were through. Of course, when I told her why she denied it. She told me he was only her cousin. Well, later, I asked this guy point blank, and he told me he was her boyfriend. So, my jealousy started back then. I can remember wanting to punch this guy out, but he was the Captain of his football team, and looked like an ox. I told her we were through, and why, and she tried her level best to keep me, too? NO WAY!
So, as far as I can tell for sure, I have been cheated on three times. Does it get better with time? Does your jealousy ever go away? I think it can, if that is what you want?
No, as of today, I have always left before any meaningful dialog started. So, I cannot speak from experience on this, but I do know this, if you want it bad enough, you can overcome anything! What the mind can concieve, can be achieved!!! I also know this, if you truly love someone, you will do anything for that love! Jealousy can be overcome by love, I really believe that!!! CONVERSATION IS THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP!!!
Sorry Dr. Leslie, not what you wanted, but something I thought might help someone else, maybe?
I know this to be a fact; the key to our happiness, lies within ourselves! But, there has to be someone to unlock the key box.
WOW!!! Long time no see?!!! How are you? You sure sound different, as FCL said? You sound waaaay more upbeat than last we heard?
No thanks are necessary, glad to have helped!!! I miss you, too!!! Why were you gone so long? This is your home too, why not come more often? Oh, wait, I think I remember? Yes, its okay that you were gone so long, how did things turn out??? For the better, I hope?
Wow, it sure is good to hear from you again! Please don't stay away for so long. You had some of us worried. Not me, tho. LOL!!! Yessir, I sure have missed you!!!
I'm sorry to hear that, you didn't deserve it!!! So what, so you were 20 minutes late? It is not the end of the world! That your brother treated you this way, says vollumes about his character!!! You know what, if he treated me that way, I would have turned around and walked out?! He is so lucky to have you as a sister!!!
Yes, you go to bed, you are up till early morn., something I cannot do anymore.
Thank you, yes, I have had three fusion surgeries on my neck. It is getting better now, doesn't hurt so bad. It is going to take time getting used to my head sitting on metal. It is a strange feeling. Thank you again!
As for the pain in your neck, (the dilwad) I hope it is over faster than you think! One day, you are going to wake up, and not even think of ole Dilwad from hell. That will be the morning you dance the happy dance!!! LOL!!!
You take care, and make the old man quit working so hard already!!! You two should be enjoying this time together somewhere else! You know, like on vacation? Get one of those Winnebagos (not sure of the spelling?) and go see this great country of ours! Especially now, while gas prices are so low!!!
I want to wish your family a speedy recovery from the Dil from aich e double ell, if that is possible!?
P.S. Please keep us informed on the progress, okay?View Thread
Well, first of all, if you are still living in your family home, you have to live by their rules. Secondly, it sounds like your parents are a little overprotective? Thirdly, if you want to travel with friends, just say its just us girls, mom, or dad? Just don't let your folks see any guys in the car.
Now, as to your wanting them to see you as an adult? First thing you shoud do, and this is only if you have acted responsibly, sit them down and talk to them, tell them what you think they should know, or want them to know? Let them know you would like to be treated as an adult now, you are no longer a child.
Or, better yet, why not move out, into your own apartment? Maybe you could rent one with a friend? Share expenses, you know?
Well, that's it, I hope something in there will help? Good luck to you now, and into your future!!!
Oh Deb, you really have been put through the ringer, haven't you??? I am sorry you had to go through all that, alone!!! Yes, you are right, your siblings could, and should do a lot more! Sorry to hear about your son, and your brother! I hope his knee will be alright, and your son's surgery turns out right?! You could use a lot less stress in your life!!! Wow, this should be about a month for your brother's surgery? I've been out two weeks now, so that should be a month for him? I hope both your son, and your brother are better? I am starting to feel better, now.
If you are tired of listening to your family ride you on something long ago, just tell them it is your life, screw off!!! If they don't screw off, tell em to go to aich e double ell. Oh, you could also tell them that; if they want to live in the past, go ahead, just leave me in the here and now, okay!? That should shut them up for good?
I know, I know, you just wanted to vent. But when you say these people are giving you greif, it makes me want to help, ya know??? I can't help wanting to help, does that make sense???
Well, I do declare, there is a thing called Karma?!!! I hope it bites her on the booty!!! Even today, I still find it hard to believe any woman could be so evil, so vindictive? You had the un-luck to find one. I feel so sorry for you, and your family, but most of all, I feel sorry for her?! She probably has no friends? And now, even her own mother has had it with her? Yes, I do feel sorry for her, but you get what you give! Karma.
I hope your son gets past this divorce, and finds that special someone for him?! As for her, I could care less!!! You, and your family have put up with her for a long time, it will take a long time to get her out of your lives! I hope your son is doing all the filing? And, I hope he has protected himself from her? You know, closed out the bank account? Things like that? I hope he sues her for costody, and for the house? He should get them both? He has plenty of witnesses to her charactor. Even her own mother.
I am so very happy for all of you!!! While I am sad for her, I also hope she finds the help she so desperately needs? Maybe your son, and even your grandson could use some counselling? Might help them get through this divorce?
Well, I hope this wonderful news doesn't keep you away from here??? We sure would like you to stay around!
Good luck to your son and grandson, you take care, and love that grandson till you spoil him!!! LOL!!!

Well, I hope you and the Spouse are all fine, and getting along famously?! Wish I could say the same? Then I would have help, right? Wow, I can't even stand to have a t-shirt on, let alone anything else. That wound extends down below the collar so I'm screwed! C'mon Friday!!! Friday is when the stitches come out.
