Please do not simply give up, kids or no kids!
Talk with a professional. This can be worked through if he really puts forth the effort and you participate. The right counseling can truly make your marriage even better than it was before, if BOTH parties are willing to be honest. Give it a try. Nothing to lose at this point and everything to gain!
I've always wondered about numerology. My birthday is on the 19th, my mom's birthday is on th
19th, my dad's birthday is on the 19th, and my great-grandmother's birthday is on the 19th.  All of different months, but I've always wondered if there was something significant about the number 19 that I'm missing. 
When you kids want money, don't give it to them and say, 'I thought you said
Nothing would have made me happier than to give my kids a car. SM

The money just was not there for cars AND their hobbies, which were expensive ones. DD's horse cost more than any car I ever had (till my recent new Explorer). DS had a sprint car that was expensive too. They loved their hobbies enough to go without a car to get to race/horse show.

But yes, if I'd been rich, they'd have each had a new car.

Give your kids an extra hug Bonnie
You had to be half frantic!  I saw the news and it was a very sad situation. 
hey...it's my birthday too! Happy Birthday! Enjoy! nm
Relax and enjoy every bite!
Agree! What about your hubs, kids, sex life, groceries? Something's gotta give if you're doing
Heck, I did not say not to wish her a happy birthday! She deserves a happy birthday.
I was just saying her birthday was on Sunday!! :) Why does everyone always want to read something negative into everything on this board. I certainly did not mean anything negative by it! I was just makin' it known WHEN her birthday was!!
TMJ treatment
I have had TMJ for years. I had an appliance that I wore for years, and it helped, but was nothing permanent. I don't remember everything I did, but quite a few things. This year we started going to a chiropractor, and one of the things he has worked on is the TMJ issue. He uses some kind of a little tool on the jaw, gives it a click or two, which pushes on the bone at the joint, and this has helped more than anything I have done over the years. My daughter also has TMJ, and this very simple treatment has helped her, too. I don't know if all chiropractors do this or not. He isn't a go-in-and-have-your-back-adjusted-because-it-hurts kind of guy. We started out seeing him three times a week, and are now down to twice a week. He has helped all of us (hubby, daughter, grandson, too), and we consider him a big part of our health care. Knowing what I know now, I'd certainly opt for this very simple treatment before I did surgery, braces, appliances, etc.
QA Treatment
Well said MTheaded.
aggressive treatment sm
You are correct. I hope I never get that QA person!
I wish you the best of luck with your treatment.
I worked with a lady who underwent treatment for a lung mass and she worked up until she got too tired, but bounced back really well once the treatment was over.  She came back really strong.  There are so many new modalities to treat it.  As far as your work, I am wondering if you could try to do as much as possible and find someone in your area to assist when needed.  The reason I say this is because this will keep you sort of balanced.  You don't want to give up your clients because they will be support as well.  You may just want to mention it to someone you trust at the practice, and I think you'll be surprised at how supportive some offices can really be when you are dealing with these types of issues as an independent.   Take care and God Bless! 
Who is dishing out the bad treatment?
Sometimes I have to remind myself that those persons at these companies who treat/treated me badly are not the owners.  The recruiters, QA, trainers, account reps, supervisors, unpleasant person who answers the phone, etc., are usually employees as well.  Whenever I have experienced foul treatment at a company, it has come from these other employees.  Whenever I have actually had contact with an owner, they have generally been very nice and respectful.  Of course, I'm not referring here to pay rates and benefits, just attitude and respect. 
I hope you're OK and are looking into treatment.
I had a bit of a cancer scare myself about a month ago on top of losing my job the month before that. The doctor said I'll probably still need surgery but the condition isn't malignant. I'm getting rid of things left and right and trying to figure out what to do with my life now. I even gave up on two of my hobbies because I never have time for them. Well, you take care of yourself. {{{{hugs}}}}
she was in Mexico for treatment for cancer, BUT...
From what I heard on GMA a few days ago, the clinic she was in was deplorable. There was even an article about it on the Watchdog website, AND the man running the clinic was NOT a doctor. So, what does that say about the person or persons who took this woman there for treatment?
Just Finished Treatment for Sciatica

I was diagnosed with sciatica/piriformis syndrome about a month ago. My physiatrist sent me to physical therapy for Graston therapy and iontophoresis. I was to the point where I had to sleep in my recliner with a heating pad on my hip. Of course, this is the result of sitting for too long......a battle wound common to the medical transcriptionist.

The Graston therapy is pretty painful and you really wonder how it could possibly help. The iontophoresis consisted of a patch with two large circular pads connected by an electrode. The pads are soaked with dexamethasone. The patch is then stuck to the butt for 24 hours. It's painless, except I pulled off a couple of layers of skin when I removed them. I had this done about 5-6 different times over a three-week period. I was also taught some gentle stretches to stretch these muscles, which I haven't been too diligent about doing.

Bottom line is that I completed my PT about two weeks ago and I haven't had any pain since then. I hope you get some relief for your condition. I know how very painful it can be.


or "more agressively treatment"....
that hurts my ears!  LOL
Why I deserve more money and better treatment as an MT...

I do NOT transcribe "medial sonoscopy."  

Good Lord.   

Symptomatic treatment is the only thing you can do, and watch for
It's Laetrile and it was supposedly used for cancer treatment
Sounds like you are giving them star treatment!
Good job!
But be sure to drink lots of fluid after a treatment and...
you might get on a good calcium with magnesium supplement to aid in good healthy of your bones. My chiropractic treatments have decreased tremendously since I got on the drinkable kind! Good luck......there's enough pain in the MT world these days without pain in one's body, too!
i have telangiectasia on face. laser treatment - very painful...but works
what could be more unsightly that broken veins on the face? well, lucky me, i have them. eveyr few years go in for treatment. electrical zaps to destroy broken blood vessel. Hurts like the dickens though. Can't use pain relievers because it causes constriction of blood vessels, they told me.
Meant to say normal treatment for woman in Amish comnmunity. nm
Do little kids like caramel? My big kids won't even eat it! We make the basic Baker's chocolat
I never said you shouldn't have kids! Feeling guilty? I asked WHY you had kids.
You clearly stated in your post that you ship the kids off to camp all day, and they're TIRED AT NIGHT!!  You know exactly what you said.  You said it as a PERK - AS IN GREAT! They're gone all day, it wears them out, and so I shovel dinner in their mouths and off to bed!  You can try to paint it any way you want, but YOU SAID IT.  Again, I only hope your kids never hear you speak that way or write that way. Shame on you.  Why have kids at all?  Just another parent who has them, gets rid of them for day AND night, BRAGS ABOUT IT, and then calls ME wicked!  Give me a break!  Camp is fine - its WHAT YOU SAID AND YOU KNOW IT.  Your own words showed your heart. Period.
Kids are demanding and so is MT work. My question is how CAN you do this with kids, rather than how
When you have two young kids, 11 months apart, (like I stated they are now 4 and 5) and have been doing this since they were born with no help from their father and no family around, YES, the kids get neglected. Part time might work but living on one salary, part time, is not an option. How can you possible tell me that anyone with two young kids can stay at home and work a full-time, 8-hour shift, and still give their kids the attention they NEED. I dont care how good you are at multitasking and how great your organizational skills are. It is a very difficult thing to do. And I am offended by your post making it sound as if it is easy to do.

I do agree that it can depend on how well your kids behave and how well they are able to play on their own. But my kids were not able to play well on their own. They needed constant attention.

So please take the time to realize that there are people out there in different situations than your own.

Reading our posts should help you to understand that everyone has a different situation. I believe everyone should have the right to shares their experiences as it might benefit the original poster in her questions and concerns.

I dont think anyone should be bashed for taking the time out to write about their experiences. I dont usually come on here to argue but you really ticked me off with your post. And try reading the post correctly. I said next time around I would have put them in day care. What I DID do with them was set them up to an activity like art or put on a movie for them. Geez.
Stayed "because of the kids?" I say "leave because of the kids"
You're in no position to buy right now. Keep saving, keep paying down your bills, and for heaven's sake get rid of that dead weight of a BF you're living with. You can do better.
So, should I return the $75 (x2 kids) in music cards I got the kids for x-mas...sm
My son has been telling me about free music sites and I was very leary.  How do they skirt the law Radguy?
I don't have kids, but my Mom was from the "old school," and still had everyone, kids inclu

call her by her first name.  The little neighbor girl next door from the time she could speak called her Aggie (my mom's first name), and they were great buddies until the day my mom pased away. 

I don't think there really is much in a name, but more in the respect you are given and the way you are treated.   Personally, I kind of cringe inside when someone calls me Ms. Anything or God forbid, "maam" (makes me feel like Methuselah!) ... I'm always just plain Merrie.  :-)

But, as someone pointed out, to each his own.  If you want to be addressed a certain way, you have that right, and people should respect that.  I'm glad you corrected the child ... hope it "sticks."

you don't put your family at risk by taking in strangers. That's just plain foolish. There were over 3300 registered sex offenders in NO. Where are they now. In your community? Perhaps in your house? Good luck.
oh our lovely government does give illegals medicaid, foodstamps, and housing so in term we give tha
i have been through some rough times lately and had to apply for some help. there are signs, big signs, all over our offices saying "YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE LEGAL TO GET HELP". so we and our government do give them our benefits whether they are legal here or not. now that is messed up. i am helping to support them so they can take away my jobs and i can't even support my kids and yes i get benefits, wow $75 a month in food stamps which lasts not even a week in a household of 6. don't get me wrong, i am thankful for any help at the moment, but i get penalized for trying to work my tail off and still can't survive.

there was recently an article in our local newspaper where one of our local school districts tried to charge $1000 a year for each illegal student enrolled. it was bulked and the illegals got a lawyer to sue for discrimination. the school district merely stated that they had to HIRE extra teachers that could speak the foreign language just to teach these children and were trying to offset some of the expenses. ridicilous!! so again our taxpayers money is paying to educate illegals as well.
4th is my birthday.
Can't believe how old I am. Where have all the flowers gone? Long time passing.....

Happy Birthday to You

Today's my Mom's birthday. What do you get for someone
who has everything and needs nothing?  I'm never sure which books she has read or not.  She likes to pick out her own clothing.  She has plenty of flowers and plants.  She already has tons of stinky candles and bath stuff.  I can't think of anything original.  Any ideas?  Thank you.
Her birthday was Sunday. :)
It's been up there at the top since Sunday. lol
so why can't someone wish a Happy birthday
without someone else having to correct them?  So what if it was Sunday. I love BD wishes early, ontime, or late. 
Happy birthday!!!!

Tell him a very happy birthday! :)
Happy Birthday 2U!
LOVE that song....
I'm glad it's your birthday
happy birthday to you.

Let's sing along!
My Birthday today, too (12/08) nm
I remember that day well. It's the birthday sm
of a very dear, longtime friend. John Lennon was my friend's hero of all time and his hero was killed on his birthday. Just now I got an email from this friend, thanking me for the gift I sent him for his birthday--a reproduction of Lennon's report card in 1955-56. The headmaster's comment (in red) on the report card was: He has too many of the wrong ambitions and his energy is too often misplaced." His French teacher said: "A disappointing result. He is so fond of obtaining a cheap laugh in class that he has little time left for serious concentration."

Hope they lived to see John's success.

Happy Birthday!!nm
50th Birthday
I turned 50 last year. Don't know if you have access to co-worker's family, but if you do and can get some pictures, a little scrapbook is something I got that I just treasure. Mine had the internet stuff about the day in history, then prices on various things on that date, and then pictures of me and family from early years to present. Just a suggestion. Also, some of the Red Hat Society stuff is kind of fun.
50th Birthday
We did a party last year for my brother-in-law - just the regular "over-the-hill" stuff, but on the cake we had them write Happy half a century Birthday instead of using the 50 - it made it sound so much older. - I shouldn't gest - i'm almost there myself.
It's my birthday, DH says I get to pick where I want to eat.
Ohhhh, the possibilities!!!
