    chare reacted to Tweety in I think I'm just about at the end of my rope...   
    I went to counseling a couple of years ago and I remember saying the same thing "I should be happy....but I'm not, I'm anxious and depressed".    I'm not saying you need counseling but that it brings back memories.

    I think the first step is doing what you're doing and just acknowledging and accepting these as they are.   You husband sounds depressed from his pain and illness but he has to be the one to take care of that.
    Start simple and just think of one thing you can change, or one thing you can add to make your life less stressful.   Just one simple thing like going for a walk, taking your kids to the movies.  Reaching out to your family and planning something.
    I know you're just venting and not looking for advice.  Good luck with everything.  I think we all come to a point in life where we stop and reflect and don't always like what we see.
    All the best.

    Oh NurseCard: I've enjoyed your posts over the years. We had a few good conversations. I remember realizing you weren't a St. Louis Cardinals fan when I wrongly assumed you were. 
    I don't know what to say except that I'm praying for you and your husband.

    Based on the spontaneous ranting of a stranger in the hospital?
    Yes, there are some like him.  I guess I don’t understand why you believe that person is more the norm over those like your friend.

    THANK YOU! I usually look at the text of a law or bill, but was lazy today. I remembered reading that women could be fired, not hired, or refused a rental and didn't verify it. The Associated Press, and many papers reported this error. Newsweek's retraction included:
    I was suspicious enough that I read the bill looking for the removal of protections preventing landlords and employers from asking women about their birth control. I could NOT find it. 
    Facts are IMPORTANT!

    Just a guess, but maybe it is not the role of the Federal government to insert themselves into a local level election of a school board. Of course, Fox news uses the pejorative "illegal immigrant" instead of the more accurate descriptor "undocumented immigrant".

    Also, I might add that there are plenty that find her naive and flat out don't believe in Social Democrats approach and want to stop it or come up with other alternatives.  They may be white men in power but that doesn't mean they are terrified.  They are defending their core beliefs in what they believe is the best approach to country.  They understand that they might lose.  Most politicians understand that when push comes to shove when they take a vote in congress there are winners and losers and they might lose.

    As has be posted here many times, tone and intent are sometimes difficult to determine from a written statement.  Just as my post came across as “combative and rude," which was not my intent, your post came across as I’ll informed and condescending.  Which after  reading your response to my post, I see was not your intent. 
    Strikes colors and withdraws from field of battle.

    Yes, I do have a specific disagreement.  And no, prior service in the military is not necessarily a requisite for having knowledge of the service.  If you are discussing equipment, the budget, operational matters, deployment, or many of the many similar categories, then no, prior service is not required.  
    However, you wrote very specific comment that ex military were “accustomed to living in communities completely controlled by someone else, where they are afforded very few choices in external appearances or conduct.”  This implies some knowledge of a military lifestyle, and I was curious as to what you based this opinion on.  Especially considering that it isn’t reflective of my 20 years in the Marine Corps.

    Do you know or interact with many kids in this age group?  My experience suggests that she wants to do this and her parents are facilitating and nurturing her interest. I doubt that they are making her do something she doesn't want to do, it can be difficult to get members of that developmental stage to comply when they aren't interested.

    As good parents would do.  I'm not a parent, but I would encourage them in their endeavors and dreams as long as they were legal.   They certainly aren't holding her back.  She's taking an ethical stance, maybe it aligns with their personal values and maybe they would stop her if she didn't, but maybe not.  A lot of parents probably wouldn't allow such public scrutiny fearing the backlash.  
    I'm as cynical as they get, but I'm not understanding you.  Are you thinking she's merely a puppet of her parents and really means none of it?

    Yes, Ms. Lysiak, publisher of the Orange Street News, is quite the investigative journalist, and I am not surprised that she didn't let the officer browbeat her.  I first read about her in 2016, as the first to report on a murder that had been committed in her community.
    If she continues as she has, she should have quite the career as a journalist.

    Wonderful story in today's Washington Post, of a 12-year-old journalist, who better understands the role of media, than some adults on this thread.
    She knew when a cop was lying to her, and she has a great post on objectively.
    Just beautiful.
