    I meant it more in terms of attitude, not necessarily going down or any specific act. I feel like men should understand that we women are GIVING ourselves, so the least they can do is take their time...

    Lol, good advice. Actually he's not too bad in other areas of life. He's not much of a communicator, but he will do things for me without me even having to ask (de-icing my car windows, getting me...

    Older, Mediterranean (old school) man. And according to my mother he sounds a lot like my husband in this respect. lol.

    Yes, I DID say he has his good qualities. Otherwise I wouldn't have married him, you're right. But I still felt like it was a mistake then and I still do now. Again, MY fault. I never said my...

    I would just go to my husband and tell him I want out. Simple. There's no need to go into the details of the affair, IMO.

    ((Hugs)) Yes, therapy is going to be a priority for me this year. It really helps to hear from people who have been there. Sometimes I feel like the only one who's unhappy and isolated in their...

    If it makes you feel better, just being in a relationship doesn't guarantee a good New Year's. You can be with someone and feel alone. Ask me how I know. :-/

    Thank you. I'm afraid I've really gotten myself into a pickle. That's what happens when you let one thing pile on top of another, emotionally speaking, and don't learn how to take care of yourself....
  9. In light of all the relationship-oriented threads...

    I know there are many older, wiser women than I on this board. So I have a question for you. I have only had two serious relationships in life, and the guys were in some ways opposite ends of the...

    Just in general: I didn't mean to imply in my comments that women who put their kids in childcare and/or don't breastfeed are somehow lesser mothers. Those are just my choices (especially the...

    Thank you for the thoughts on seeing a dr. and about childcare. Interesting that you brought up the TBI issue. I did have a bad fall when I was about 15 that resulted in a mild concussion. I was not...

    Thanks, sketcher. I have noticed that going gluten-free helps me somewhat, more my moods than the fatigue. There was actually a study done with Schizophrenic patients. One group cut out gluten from...

    Thank you. We have been talking about it and he has been clear from the beginning that he feels it's MY decision, and he supports me whatever I choose. I could not ask for a more supportive partner,...

    Thank you. I was slightly offended by her post, being so flippant about abortion, a subject which I happen to take VERY seriously. And bringing up the "world is overpopulated" dogma..actually what...

    Exercise usually helps, when I'm not too tired to do it. I am considering taking Restorative Yoga classes. I remember taking one intro class (general yoga) at the local YMCA a few years back, and...

    It's not a matter of nutrition or rest. I have a very clean diet--no fast food or junk, even eat as much organic as possible. I also sleep a solid 8-9 hours. And I wake up exhausted. Been like this...

    Thanks for the support, guys. As for daycare, I was never fond of the idea of putting my child under a stranger's watch. I grew up as a "latch key" kid so I know the pain of not having parents...

    Pregnant and not sure what to do. :(

    First of all, I apologize in advance for posting something not technically horse-related (but it is, in a way, as you'll see in a couple of lines.) I debated whether or not to post this, but finally...
