Sorry you're still dealing with this, KL. If it's a cognitive decline and not physical, she's likely got a lot of time left for you to visit. There's no rush unless the staff tell you so. My ex-MIL babysat once at 4 months, and said the baby was "a going concern" and "too much work&q...

self care always first! Yes, I am only just learning that in my 50s! :) When I was young, my mother's needs and wants always came first. I always had to tiptoe round her and hope I wouldn't set her off in a tantrum. Of course whatever I did was wrong so she was always having tantrums and 'getting r...

Not only what I said before either. I pieced more together today. It all makes sense now. I'm really fcking angry about all of this. I mean I knew that my upbringing was sh*t to say the least but this is just off the fcking scale. I always felt like there was some kind of conspiracy surrounding me ...

Why not just close the toilet, if somebody wants it to be closed? It's not that hard to do.


Yep.

Yes, Mr K, I think the 'reality' shows are also to blame, because everyone on them looks like models. I mean shows like Love Island, not the Bake Off. Kids think people 'should' look like models now. And anyone who doesn't is 'ugly.' And also the amount of make up women wear now sets an unrealistic ...

I think it's also hygienic for people to put the toilet seat down. Things can fall in the toilet if the lid is up and you shouldn't flush the chain with the lid up as germs can fly upwards. Luckily in our household we have two women and one man so he knows to leave the seat and lid down :lol: So he...

Porn is merely a caricature which depicts sex. ^^this. But lads start watching it at a very young age because it's easily available and it distorts their view of women and sex, IMO. I overheard my 15 year old neighbour complaining because his neighbour (me) was an ugly old woman and not a beautiful...

Hmm, I see I wasn't entirely clear. Although my friends have almost never been people who lived in my immediate neighborhood, most of them DID live in the New York City metro area, and I did see them in-person at least occasionally. Others were long-distance friendships. But, back before the era of...

alot of men seem to believe that beautiful women dont fart or something They need to get a brain then. All humans fart. I think porn has a lot to answer for: many men watch a lot of porn and it leads them to believe that the ideal woman doesn't have bodily functions and is always available for sex.

.... or, at least, 21st century humans have the illusion of being very independent. Not all of us are so independent, and all of us risk losing our independence, in one way or another, sooner or later. Those of us who have adult children -- and who have good relationships with said children -- may ...

Yes, I'm quite private in real life, I don't tell people much about myself because I think it's too weird e.g. I am a book editor of mostly erotic or M/M romance, I also write fanfiction which is often sexy. I don't think people in real life would like that at all! Or, at least, the people in your ...

As people get closer to the end they sometimes start to see through some of their sh#t. Start to realise where they made mistakes. It may happen in a big way or a little way. I would try to take her word for it while not getting too excited that she has changed. Change is hard work. haha no don't w...

Just to say, I think it's fine to discuss politics *if you are sure the other people want to discuss politics* If you are at a social event e.g. a wedding, a birthday, a formal works dinner, a Christmas party, it's better not to discuss politics (or religion or anything else that could cause an argu...

question is is it unsexy to have ibs :oops: ? It is neither unsexy or sexy. It is a problem you have and if people don't like it, they can go elsewhere. Everyone has problems and we have to deal with our own and other people's in a sympathetic and caring way. Human bodies and minds have problems, i...

I phoned my mother today and she sounded perfectly normal. I expect the social worker was overreacting. The only thing that worried me was that my mother was saying 'I miss you so much. I really love hearing from you. I really love you.' WTAF. She never says things like that!! I think she's regretti...

Thanks for the info, Magz. I hope the Ukrainians who have been trained in the West will know enough to operate the tanks.

I'm surprised how open Britain has been about training Ukrainian soldiers. I'd keep my mouth shut if I was them. But hey, this is how stupid Britain is these days.
