[ - ] Some people are disgusted by heavy smokers. I'm completely disgusted by drug addicts and alcoholics. I just don't want to have those 2 types around at all. This is a hard read because of that, I don't relate to her tolerance towards living with an alcoholic. http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/27/surviving-an-alcoholic/ 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

"Alcoholism is a disease that keeps challenging loved ones after the alcoholic is gone. Surviving spouses don’t hesitate to talk of heart attacks, cancer deaths, car accidents. But other than suicide — and some might argue that alcoholism is a slow suicide — it’s a death laden with shame." Here's the thing, drinking more than what one should drink is just bad judgement. Not a "disease" like cancer or pneumonia. People who call it a "disease" don't seem to realize that by doing so, they are enabling the alcoholic. They pretend that the alcoholic is not exercising bad judgement. It's very bizarre behavior on the part of those who surround the alcoholic. [ Reply | More ]

"The Jekyll-and-Hyde personae were happily married college professor by day, passed-out drunk at night." Uf, I know a ton that fit this description. College professors seem so depressed, many have alcohol in their offices on a regular basis. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Do you think that people who struggle dislike people who have had a much easier life than they have? Not only with $, but with IQ, experiences, relationships and the like aspects of life. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes. That's the entire basis of class warfare. [ Reply | More ]

But I'm not talking only about $. I see plenty of envy coming from those who inherited a lot more than others, either because they have more free time, or much more solid relationships, a better life than they themselves have. Not a "class" warfare, but what I notice is a ton of "quality of life" envy. [ Reply | More ]

It is all a basis for class warfare because IQ is what basically determines all those things as well as income. People ascribe it to "luck," but in fact it's just differences in intelligence (and partly looks, but mostly intelligence). They say, "Oh, look at them. They are going to an ivy league. It's because they were legacy," when it fact, their scores were good. Or they'll say, "Oh, look at them. They're working in medicine because their parents paid for the SAT/MCAT tutoring," when in fact their intelligence is just higher and their diligence, too. It's all the same leading to the same road.

OP again. It's obviously bad for their sleep, which is bad for cognitive development- but I've never seen any abuse. Usually either the adults talk and the kids play, or it's one adult with a crying little one, walking back and forth presumably to get him/her to sleep. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. I've thought about 311 but I don't know... I don't live in an expensive neighborhood. They're immigrants and probably have it harder than I do. I just feel kind of bad, you know? The guys who blast their car radios I'll 311, but... [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Mc mom here again. Dh just suggested I find a new OB. She has been nothing but wonderful through the entire thing, as she was with my first pregnancy, delivery. She doesn't take insurance, dh is suddenly bothered by this and wants me to find someone new. Really? Today of all days? Because "all the ultrasounds are adding up" & since we don't get a baby at the end, it's not worth it? He just called me a whack job for crying after asking him to please shelf the conversation for another time, he pressed forward, I cried, now I'm a whack job 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I agree but how clueless can you be? After the day I've had, complaining about how much it costs? I even met with another OB, in our network, we discussed and dh said no, everything's good with her, we have a great rapport, everything with dd was great, don't switch. Now, another year into fertility treatments and mcs I should switch. [ Reply | More ]

Eastside, westside. Slightly more traditional, slightly more progressive. Slightly better college matriculation's, slightly more creative. Tough to get into either. I'm more West Side so I vote Ethical, but that's just my personal feelings. [ Reply | More ]
