[ - ] MIL is notorious for saying very rude, condescending remarks (in a very nice way) to me in the past that I have become hypersensitive to everything she says. Yesterday she asks dh on the phone how I was feeling (I am 38 weeks pg). DH says I am fine. THen she continues to ask "Is she having any swelling?" He says no. I know I am overly sensitive because I am pg, but it would give her great satisfaction is I looked horrible. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] anyone else feel like this? i think my parents did the best they can but sometimes i wonder what they were doing all the time i was growing up? i posted about having that experience with my foster sister...anyway, b/c there were so many kids i don't recall much one on one with them. i never learned basics of how to do things right like brush my teeth, wash up, clean up etc. only when i got older and people made comments did i learn to do it right. makes me so mad that they would take so many kids in their home and then just let us watch TV for hours and yell and scream at us most of the time. don't get me wrong we had BBQs and went to the beach at times but I remember just watching TV all day long and pretty much fending for myself..lots of babysitters etc. sorry just venting - i can't imagine being this way with dcs... 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think you are really dwelling on things you cannot change and it sounds like you are trying to blame others for how you are now. Not to be a total bitch, but you can process these things yourself; square your shoulders and basically thank them for showing you how NOT to parent - - in other words, build a better life on their "mistakes". You have no idea how horrible their childhoods may have been - so for all you know, they were a vast improvement on their parents... now you will be a vast improvement on their parenting skills. Move forward and stop looking back so much! [ Reply | More ]
