stupid things people say...

People like the ones we are discussing just don't get it. I especially love how if you talk to any of my step mothers friends, they all think that she is sooo supportive of me. That's because she is a very good pretender. She also dramatizes anything negative in her or anyone else's lives. I do feel bad for her and seriously hope one day she gets what's coming. She actually had the nerve to say to me (on several occasions) that she feels so lucky to have me (I'm the only girl with 4 brothers) because daughters always take care of their mothers when they get old and sick. Lady.... don't count on it.

During my hysterectomy, the doc's nicked my bladder. I had to have a cath for a little over a week. When I went in for my bladder study (which they filled my bladder with contrast then took X-rays) I had to sign a paper saying I wasn't pregnant!

I havent spoken about my upcoming surgery to anyone except "very close" family members and one "very close girlfriend". I had infertility issues for about 10 years (after the birth of my first son) then I had a laparoscopy and found the endo and cleaned it up, I got pregnant right away. That was almost 4 years ago. FOR YEARS I have struggled with PMS (and my family has also struggled) and in the past year my cycle has changed-pain, heaving bleeding--blah, blah. But I havent broadcast my surgery because of a comment that my on dad has made to me on a couple occassions that my PMS symptoms were all in my head!! Oh how I wish he had ovaries!!! So from then on I keep feelings/symptoms to closer family members. My dad knows about the surgery, but I talk to my step-mom about it more. So, I can definately relate to what you are going through. Hang in there and just let it go in one ear and out the other.

To rephrase "her" words.... " I just can't cover your carpool days (2 afternoon pick ups for the last week and a half of school!) because I am just too stressed out myself".

Oh My Ladies some of those comments had me shaking my head in disbelief It gets me quite grrrrrrr when people are just so insensitive .... My M-I-L (love the monster in law title please can I borrow it) doesn't pass any comment as to her I'm a non-entity, she too is all self, self ,self . Thankfully we live miles away from her so we don't see too much of her .... It does however remind me when I had my ventro suspension & steralization she couldn't understand why I needed to go to bed after the surgery for a few hours and 'who was going to cook dinner'
This time a couple of comments have made me chuckle My friend when I told her of my op date said ' oh that was bad planning my holiday is 2 weeks after that ...... who is gonna dye my hair' ..... she also called me a ***** when I first told her of my intended op as she too has 'menstral problems' and she is in the menopause (1 period every 3 months sounds like heaven to me)
However on a lighter note..... I heard my son explain to his friend (he's 12) that I was going in the hospital for a Hysterical Rectum Operation ....
Onwards & Upwards Ladies at least we have each other
