I didn't get a chance to post this last week, but thought you might get a kick out of it.

While Rob was in the hospital, I went out one night to a stamping party with some friends (I know, my wild side). Anyway, we are all sitting around chatting and some interesting topics come up. Some people were having issues they wanted to discuss. Are you ready?

1. 'my nanny just quit with no warning. I can't believe she would do this to me' (no, she doesn't work)

2. 'My nanny service is great would you like the number?'

3. 'I just am not happy with the job my housekeeper is doing. Anyone have someone they can recommend?'

4. 'We are going to the carribean and I am having the hardest time finding a limo service that will come get us early enough for the flight.'

Just for the record, I don't have a nanny, housekeeper, etc. We bought at the right time with 2 incomes...I stay home with the kids now.

So anyway, there was a part of me that so badly wanted to say. 'Wow, that is a really tough issue. I just checked rob into a psyche hospital cause he was suicidial. Also, has severe ptsd, did and has been disassocaiting like crazy.'

I dont' like to try and one up people, but, it took everything in my to not scream get a real problem!!!!!!

Thought you might get a kick out of that!

Lorie,

That must have been frustrating considering what the last few months have been like. The issue of having "problems" is so based on their point of view and the toughest thing they have to worry about is a friggin nanny or house keeper...well all i got to say is....

Must be friggin NICE!!

I HATE it when people elevate their trivial problems to a level that they will never be able to know of. They live their lives in pure blissfulness. Truth is though, I envy them.

can i ask how we can judge what is a "trivial problem"? there are times i think my stuff doesn't even qualify for "trivial", based on what some people here have been through.

maybe some people have had an easier life - that does not mean their problems are any less pressing or stressful to them than ours are to us.

we complain when people just can't seem to understand what we're going through. sounds to me like it's a universal problem that runs both ways.

Again its all based on your point of view...the reference point for each person on what is troublesome.

Now the one thing you can never minimalize is your CSA issues.

Lorie,

I admire your self control with that. I'm not sure I'd have managed as well,

John
