    [–] How to break up with disabled bf? GlitterberrySoup 2 points ago in Advice

    As weird as it is, I am in a very similar situation right now. My husband is legally blind and hasn't worked for almost ten years. I do practically everything around the house and work a full time job. I pay for a cleaning service because I can't keep up with everything that needs to be done. We also have 5 kids between us.

    I thought I could be everything he and the kids needed me to be. I thought I could go to work, be the driver, do the shopping, do the chores, be the good wife. I was so wrong. I'm a mess. I'm resentful and exhausted. And I finally got up the nerve to tell him that I want a divorce.

    Yes, of course I know there will be those who will look down on me as the woman who left the disabled man. I don't care. This is for my sanity. OP, your sanity and well-being matters too.

    [–] It’s been one of those days.... GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in pharmacy

    I wish I could upvote this twice. And maybe add on something about their ability to use escripting, like if they screw it up a certain number of times it just blocks them. That's my dream.

    [–] What is one word you have a hard time spelling? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in RandomThoughts

    Embarrassed.

    Is that even right? I just let the phone do it for me to be honest.

    [–] Doctors of Reddit, what was your dumbest r/Iamverysmart patient experience? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pharmacy tech here - a patient like this is the exact reason we had to change our standard sig for suppositories to "unwrap and insert". You wouldn't think you'd have to point that out.

    [–] How did you find out your S.O. was cheating on you? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in AskReddit

    As the serial cheater, I have no idea. It's probably the paralyzing fear of being alone combined with being raised to believe that being single is somehow "less than". So we rush into relationships that aren't what we want but they're easy. Then when they inevitably crumble, we cheat to fill the hole that's created.

    Rinse, repeat. Forever.

    [–] Shoutout to my boyfriend. You’re probably reading this actually :) GlitterberrySoup 4 points ago in proED

    Hey OP's boyfriend: if you want to know something, the best way to get your answer is to ask the question. Sneaking around and violating privacy is never the way. Trust, once broken, can be restored but will never be the same as it was before.

    [–] Dear Conner, GlitterberrySoup 6 points ago in UnsentLetters

    OP, I'm sorry for your loss.

    I have three sons, one of whom is a lot like Conner. He has had some good teachers and some not so good. You sound like one of the good ones. Please don't think you failed him in any way. Just the fact that you noticed his struggles and responded to his emails no doubt meant a lot and helped him.

    Thank you for doing the job you do.

    This is the right answer. I also like to do a sideways shuffle if it's really icy.

    [–] It's dipping your pizza in ranch common nation wide? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    I don't know how I missed that! TIL... Sounds kinda good actually.

    [–] It's dipping your pizza in ranch common nation wide? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    Oh I'm not saying I've never heard of it, I just don't care for it myself. I've lived here my whole life.

    [–] I don't understand... GlitterberrySoup 11 points ago in Dogfree

    I can't agree with you more. There are more and more restaurants around me that are becoming dog-friendly, and I don't mean on the patios and beer gardens. I mean in the dining rooms. This is not okay for me, I don't want to eat with your dog laying on my feet. My yoga studio is now dog-friendly, so now I have to deal with dogs licking my ears while I'm trying to focus. I could have stayed home for that.

    I have dogs. They belong to my husband and kids, but I tolerate them. When I go into a public place, I don't need this. Sorry for the rant.

    Wait what? I have spent a fair amount of time in Central Illinois and have never heard of this.

    [–] Seroquel is ruining my life GlitterberrySoup 6 points ago in BipolarReddit

    Honestly, I felt like it ruined my life too :( . I gained a ton of weight because all I could do was sleep and eat - I was so strangely hungry. I lost my job because I couldn't get out of bed no matter how early I went to sleep. Sure, it stopped the mania, but the depression it caused lasted almost a year.

    I would say that everyone's chemistry is different. Every drug is not meant for everyone. I know people who sing the praises of Seroquel. You and I just don't happen to be among that number, so let your doctor know right away that it doesn't work for you and move along. There will be one that works.

    [–] Fellow adults of Reddit, what's the hardest part of being an adult to you? GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in AskReddit

    This is so perfect that it choked me up. I have three boys of my own and a stepson and stepdaughter. They're teenagers now and they can read on my face when I walk in the door when my day at work has been rough. My parents are both in ill health and they probably talk to them and check on them more than I do, just to make sure I know they're ok. It makes me so proud to know that I've raised them to be these people. They're not perfect, of course, but they're pretty awesome. Knowing that I have them, even though I'm not a perfect person either, is what gets me out of bed every day.

    [–] Please teach your kids about menstruations and get them prepared. GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Wait why would she not buy you pads? I have kids and I could not imagine doing this. That's like not giving them clothes or a lunch. I'm so sorry this happened to you.

    [–] This Speed Hump sign says "WHOA" GlitterberrySoup 13 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    This is my favorite part. Came in here looking for this!

    [–] Guys - What are the hottest ways a girl could initiate sex? GlitterberrySoup 5 points ago in sex

    Omg yes this so much. I'll admit I was confused and weirded out at first but then I just started to roll with it. It's incredibly hot for both people.

    [–] Eye opener. GlitterberrySoup 2 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    This is me, too! I have one 20/20 eye and one 20/200 eye. I don't turn on red unless the way is totally clear, and my turn signal is on way too far in advance. Strangely, I find it much harder to park to the "bad" side (the right) so I always look for parking spots on the left.
