    [–] Yeah ZERO is pretty shocking. stimulants_and_yoga 46 points ago in antiMLM

    Most of these people would be considered 1099 independent sales reps (NOT BUSINESS OWNERS). So their revenue would still get filtered to the company, and their compensation plan would determine their annual income.

    I’m a sales rep who’s bought a car and a house. Neither of them have ever cared about the gross revenue I bring into my company, because it doesn’t mean shit. They care about how much I bring home. Once again, determined by a commission plan.

    LMAOOOO I SAW THAT!!!! I’m not going to lie, I was waiting for some mean DMs from some Huns because my username was visible, but none came.

    I think it’s admirable that you are able to identify and admit where you need to make a change. Once I quit drinking alcohol, the rest of the changes were easy. I wish you the best ❤️

    They talk about becoming millionaires and being able to retire all the time.... lucky for me, I have an employer-matched 401k!! So I too, will be able to retire someday!

    I don’t want to get banned from this subreddit, but if you look at my post history, she’s the one who posted the black box rant on her insta story.

    I think I captioned it something about Huns losing their minds.

    But it stands for modern natural, so it should be “mo nat”

    As a former military wife myself (still married, my husband got out)... that is where my hatred for MLMs really took way.

    Doesn’t help from I’m also from the Midwest where there’s a lot of STAH moms and I used to be in a sorority.... basically MLM shit has ruined my social media experience. It’s nonstop.

    YES!!!!!!! Haha, small world. She’s a literal train wreck.

    Can we please talk about how she’s constantly talking about how much money she makes, but then asks people to Venmo her money constantly, so she can get her nails done?!

    [–] To what extent can you call a BPD person abusive and manipulative? stimulants_and_yoga 2 points ago in BPDlovedones

    Wow. Thank you for sharing your heart with me. Those words really helped me a lot.

    I recently learned that my mom is BPD when I had a huge mental breakdown at my therapists office because of my mom calling and saying that everyone in my family is dying (not factual), my therapist told me that’s her personality disorder.

    I recently started reading “walking on eggshells” about loving someone with BPD. It’s making it easier to realize that I can’t fix her, no matter how hard I try.

    I plan to continue to go to therapy, and I like the concept of changing my expectations of her. She’s no longer “mother”, but a sad, traumatized person.

    I’m also actively trying to relearn and reparent myself from all the fucked up beliefs that she taught me as a kid.

    Even still, I love her, because at least she was around. My dad was off doing meth and fucking other women. They’ve both caused me a lot of pain, which is why I want to do the work to heal the damage so I don’t pass it on to my kids.

    Thanks again. Have a great day! ❤️

    [–] To what extent can you call a BPD person abusive and manipulative? stimulants_and_yoga 2 points ago in BPDlovedones

    I had 2 febrile seizures as a kid, and no doctor has ever told me that I have epilepsy.

    I’m really struggling with the guilt of not being able to help her. It’s been my job my whole life and I’ve recently established boundaries and I feel so damn guilty. How did you get over that?

    Maybe it’s different cause it was a romantic relationship versus mom/daughter...?

    [–] To what extent can you call a BPD person abusive and manipulative? stimulants_and_yoga 3 points ago in BPDlovedones

    My mom is BPD and her life experiences are almost the exact same... - Epileptic seizures cause damage = yes - Narcissistic, abusive mother = yes - Kidnapped and raped as a child = yes

    I’ve heard BPD is usually a trauma response.

    [–] I got sober because I wanted to start a family.... stimulants_and_yoga 5 points ago in TryingForABaby

    It’s all good. You’re right, I’ve had a lot of fun while drinking... especially outside, it’s a fuckin blast.

    I’ve just realized that the negative consequences almost always outweigh those momentary highs.

    [–] I got sober because I wanted to start a family.... stimulants_and_yoga 6 points ago in TryingForABaby

    big sigh I will not drink with you today.... even though I really want too 😅

    [–] I got sober because I wanted to start a family.... stimulants_and_yoga 23 points ago in TryingForABaby

    You’re right... It’s a 50/50 shot of me being able to moderate with 1 glass of wine then getting back to sobriety OR a month long ordeal where I throw all rules out the window and drink however much I want.

    Either way, I wake up the next morning hating myself and feeling like shit. My mental health thanks you for reminding me of that. ❤️

    You hit the nail on the head when you said it’s “re-learning how to deal with stresses”....

    I’m obviously terrible at dealing with uncomfortable emotions cue BFN and what I need to do is find healthy outlets. Being outside always helps me tremendously. I’ll make sure to prioritize those types of activities this weekend.

    Thanks for your support!

    [–] I got sober because I wanted to start a family.... stimulants_and_yoga 8 points ago in TryingForABaby

    Thank you so much for offering to be a support! And yes, R/stopdrinking has helped keep my sanity during this process. Just knowing other people are out there fighting the same fight is really encouraging.

    I think the hardest part is that people say “drink till it’s pink” and “enjoy your life before you have kids”.... I know what I’m doing is what’s best for me and my family, but then I get a BFN and start to second guess if this even worth it right now.

    What I’m realizing is that your mind will convince you of anything when you’re trying to escape uncomfortable emotions....

    My husband sent me an Instagram caption this morning, it said:

    “It was the right thing to do. It was going to be hard. I did not want to do it. I did it anyway. I’m better now because of it.”

    This can be applicable to both of our situations. It’s hard, it’s uncomfortable. I’m probably going to cry during the process, but it’s going to be worth it. Wishing you the best in your journey ❤️

    Negative test this morning, but it’s not over until the red lady sings 😅

    [–] BBT question stimulants_and_yoga 1 points ago in TryingForABaby

    That makes sense! I wish you the best in your journey ❤️
