I don't know where to start. I just need to vent and get this out I guess. I am a single mom, in my 30's. I have been diagnosed with "clinical MS" I had a bout of optic neuritis in early September and they are still running tests for MS. :unsure: I work for my parents and have for 10 years. My parents are very controlling and emotionally abusive under the guise of being "helpful" I am plotting to get away from them when I get my tax refund and can buy a car. My ex husband got the car in our divorce and then got it repossessed. :spaz: sorry for the life story This last weekend my kids and I went on a trip with my parents. It was hell. It was so bad that when I got home I was seriously considering suicide as an option to get out of this situation. We toured a place that was 95 - 100 degrees F and I went to walk back to the car and when I got to where the car was parked the car was not there. I finally found my parents and I pulled my father aside and calmly explained to him that I can't walk long distances in that heat any longer and can they please tell me before they move the car next time and I got screamed at. I am under Dr. orders not to get overheated. I have finger marks on my thigh above my knee from my father grabbing my leg because he thought it was funny how it made me jump and yell. It hurt very badly and left a bruise. I was told that if I raised my voice to my kids again telling them not to run in the restaurant that I was going to be beaten with a belt. There are many, many more things and this post is quite long. If you have made it this far bless you! Thank you for reading my rant.
