Re: My mom vent

Snafu, I've always been conditioned to take on guilt. We were very co-dependant. Just before my marriage broke down I came into self awareness. One realisation was that as adults we are only...

Re: What is a "false sense of well being"???

I got a "honeymoon" period for a couple of weeks taking Levythroxine. I was overjoyed that my symptoms were subsiding. After that things returned to my hypothyroid "normal".

Re: What is a "false sense of well being"???

I'd agree with PeeWee.

I guess it could be like taking pain relief for a bad back. The pain goes and therefore you do physical things, forgetting that the cause of the pain is still there...

Re: When do you stop supporting "the dream."

Providing you aren't financially supporting him I'd say just let him get on with it. He's an adult and maybe he needs to fail big time for him to come to the realisation that he needs to give up the...

Re: How can I help my boyfriend without doing everything for him all the time?

If he presents you with a problem I'd respond along the lines of "I'm sorry to hear that, what are you going to do about it?"

You can be a source of support and encourage him to find his own way...

He absolutely needs to be out of your house and life.
