Things had been pretty quiet around here since my last blog. I'm pretty sure DH was listening in on my counseling appointment (which I have since addressed with him) around mid-February when I was discussing the issues with my therapist, I'm certain he was outside my office when I was talking about banning SS (which my therapist thinks should have already happened lol). He was acting weird and made arrangements to have lunch with SS right after, which is unusual. He doesn't really like spending time with his son, so he generally avoids him.

OT - Eff Off Friday

Aniki's picture

Yes, I'm late to the party. Unfortunately, it has NOT been a party. One word to describe this week:



Eff off to:

  • ZOOM *wacko*
  • King Pita, that effer yammers on and on and on and on and on.... *dash1*
  • Me for being an indispensible Jane-of-all-trades *unknw*


The "school bell" sounds in 12 minutes and I'll be signing off so fast, my keyboard will be smoking!

Wishing you a stress-free and enjoyable weekend!


Competing with each other for parent of the year or just guilt?

Or even grandparent of the year. So this last Valentine's Day, really brought it home. I've noticed this, and suspected this for oh about 4 years now but it really solidified since my year of disengagement. DH treats my grown children for the most part as well as his own. Of course we've had a few bumps here and there with my 18 year old still living with us high schooler but that's to be expected.


Karma - update - OT (kinda)

Hello Stalk friends :)  It's been ages, but I thought I'd post an update.

My ex has been blocked a while now, we don't entertain communication from him, only exception was 3 weeks ago for the 8 year old's birthday when she called me from her sister's phone.  Chatted with her for a bit, dropped off a gift, ignored my ex, worked out fine.

Sociopath signs and symptoms

I've scoured the internet and this site trying to figure my SD out. I think I'm ready to leave this situation I'm in or at the very least disengage completely from my SD. My mental health is so damaged. My anxiety I out of control, even with medication I can barely get through my day and I fear I am beginning to slip into depression. 

With that being said, I want real and honest thoughts, feelings, symptoms, signs, experiences... whatever you got regarding your young SD or SS that would help me come to terms that my own SD7 truly is a sociopath. 

Blog Hog - Update to SD

So our last phone call with SD was actually the best yet, she actually was not distracted by being at a fun place when we call or playing, but was back to being very talkative and responsive. Not sure if time of day has anything to do with it either, but we are calling SD today the same time as the last call and hoping for similar results.

Not sure where else to turn to.

Hello All,

I know that it has been a while since I posted. If you want the history of my family read past blogs.

Things have been super rough and tough with DS 12. Part-time virtual is not helping the situation but nothing we can do about it. Anyway, new baby is here and DS 5 months is doing great he is such a cute little stinker. Anyway, I need some advice or hear from people who have been through what I am going through now.

Update to pets

futurestepmomnowstepgf's picture

So I know there are a LOT of pet lovers on here so I figured I would share an update on the pets/moving cross country that I had posted about a month ago now. So we will be driving in the truck with both the cat and the dog. We got a car seat kennel that runs the length of the whole backseat, straps into the car buckles on either side and attaches around the head rest as well. It has mesh along the front so they can see and the actual end of a kennel with the metal doors on either end.
