Stress-vent

So I'm halfway thru the 2WW exactly today. I dont know if I am having symptoms or if it's just stress. It's probably just stress. I have been crabby the last 3 days, a little crampy, and I came home from class on Tuesday layed down at 5:30pm and never got back up till the next morning.
My stress levels lately have been sky high so I figure that probably has a lot to do with things. I had a Physics test yesterday which I probably failed, not becuase of lack of studying but understanding. Our school has a levy on for Tuesday and if it doesnt pass, then I might loose my job. We don't know exactly who and how many teachers will be cut at this point. SO and I got into a heated discussion regarding his daughter last night. She makes almost 2000 a month and is asking to move in with him (she also has a 3 yr old little biy who she drops off to anyone so she doesnt have to watch him). She says she cant pay her bills, but literally she eats out at a restaurant everyday and goes out drinking any chance she can get. She only wears designer clothes and drinks grey goose and Patron. She's wasting all her money and then blaming everyone else for it instead of herself. I finally said something to her about it last week because with her wanting to move in it effects me as well and I'm not going to support her money spending habits and be a free babysitter so she can go out and party whenever she feels like it. I dont care if she is 22, she chose to get pregnant on purpose and have a kid. He keeps making excuses for her and I'm sick of it.

I'm just ready to give up on everything right now and I know I shouldnt say that but it gets to a point where a person really cant take much more and I'm to that point.

Thank you for letting me vent ladies....

I'm so sorry you're going through all this stress and frustration!! My SIL is the same as your DHs dd. She lived off her parents until she was almost 30 years old. Their enablement did no one any favors and it was frustrating and disgusting to watch!!

I really hope things work out. I know that feeling of beig fed up with everything. I hate that you're at that place!! I hope this is your month and you can get off this terrible ride!!

I feel for you.

I used to be a childless step-parent. Although you and SO are not married, close enough IMO.

Being a childless step-parent is the hardest thing I have ever done. Especially when dealing with fertility issues. I was blessed with my mircale thanks to clomid and I can tell you - parenting your own child is 100% easy than being a good step parent. I wish there were more support groups for step parents. THey are kind of the forgotten group.

I wish you all the luck in the world with your situation. I imagine it will be difficult. I hope the stress leaves you soon.

:bigarmhug: Hugs!
