    My grandma is pissed at me because I don't want to take the covid vaccine? ?

    First of all, I'm 23 and female. I was on the phone with my grandma and told her I don't plan on taking the covid vaccine. She started yelling at me for being stupid and threatened to never let me in her house again. Once she had calmed down I explained why I don't want the vaccine. 2 reasons. First, I don't trust it because I don't know how it will affect my body. And I read somewhere that it can cause infertility which is probably not true but I'm not taking any chances since having a baby is the only thing I want in life and I might as well just kill myself if I can't have children. I can't adopt because I'm not allowed to foster or adopt if I have daily contact with someone who has a record. My mom does, she lost custody of me for child abuse and child neglect when I was about 10 but did change her ways and got me back less than two years later. I completely trust her but that doesn't matter. I looked into it, I wouldn't be allowed to foster because I have contact with my mom. Grandma just started yelling at me again about being stupid and believing garbage. It's not that I believe it, I'm just not taking any chances. I told her that once I start hearing about people getting pregnant and carrying to full term and delivering a healthy baby after taking the vaccine, then I'll be more than happy to take it. She's so mad at me. It's my body so it's my choice. I'm fine doing video calls if she doesn't feel comfortable having me over.

    My boyfriend doesn’t want me visiting my family?

    First I want to start off by saying I’m homesick and I miss my mom and siblings more than a lot. Right now I’m currently pregnant and my boyfriend keeps saying it’s not a good idea to visit my family. He keeps coming up with excuses saying my mom will stress me out which can affect our baby but I know my mom more than him. We both live together and his family is involved in our lives BUT every time I try to involve my mom or younger siblings he becomes upset as if I ruined the mood. My family lives in the next state which really isn’t far from me. I just don’t know what to do at this moment. I don’t want to upset him for visiting my family but I also I want to see them so bad. Advice please?

    Do you think its sexist of parents to treat their son better than their daughter just because he temporary moved out?

    They have three children. The youngest is excused because he is 13. Their daughter is 24. Never moved out and never went to school after high school. Her parents yell at her a lot that she needs to get a job. She does not get an allowance. Her older brother is 26. Had to move back home because he lost his job last year. They never yell at him, and they are even willing to give him spending money until het gets a new job. They claim this is because he actually acts like an adult, but do this sound sexist to you

    How can I cope with my nana's passing.?

    My nana passed away sometime last night at the age of 73. Just 10 days ago she was still texting us every night, sounded like her normal self on phone calls. Let me tell you and I can't even explain in words, she is the nicest, most caring, loving, selfless, person I have ever seen and I will ever see in my entire life. I'm 16 years old and she has been by my side treating me like gold for every single bit of those 16 years. She is the nicest nana you could ever imagine. She did not want to be a burden on us ever and has not been a burden at all to ANYONE in my family. No chemo was done and we now think she did not want to do it since she couldn't on her own and did not want to be a burden. My mom and I have been over there helping her a lot taking care of her, spending the night. She says "honey you don't have to help nana, you don't have to do this" because she is so considerate and doesn't want to cause any discomfort. Again I can't even explain in words how much she has impacted my whole life. Again I'm 16, my little sister is 12 and my brother is 7. Recently I have been spending a lot more time with her and it was not because I knew this was going to happen. It was so sudden, but luckily my mom and I were still there for her final night. Even though this was the first time in a week we didn't stay overnight. I have cried my eyes out today and I'm falling apart because everything reminds me of her. Is there anything at all I can do to help the pain. She loved us so much.

    Can Social services take my children away ?

    I live with my 3 children 11, 9 and 1 years old. My Grandma who is 89 also lives with us. I have had problems with my mental health and have had some episodes of psychosis, which is being managed with medication and mental health services. 

    My grandmas health is deteriorating and she now uses a frame to help with walking and a commode to stop her having toilet accidents. I live in a 2 bedroom flat. My grandma, 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter state a room and I share with the baby. My older two children didn’t want to share the room with grandma anymore due to lack of space and the smell from the commode and I also felt that grandma needed her dignity and privacy, so my older two are now sharing the sofa. 

    There have been a few incidents of grandmas memory deteriorating slightly, sometimes she is ok and other times a bit vacant. She has had some outbursts where she has said hurtful things to me and I cried. There was also an incident where I was in the shower and both grandma and the children were watching over the baby and grandma hit my eldest son. I did not see it but when my daughter told me what happened the following day. I spoke to grandma to explain this was not how I wanted to discipline my children and that I didn’t appreciate her doing that. It has not happened since. 

    Today my mental health services contacted me to explain that concerns were raised by a family member and also the children’s school and they mentioned social services involvement.

    Family members/in-laws won't listen? Please help me! ?

    Hello,

    I had issues with sister in-law & her kids. 

    The rest of my brother in-laws and another sister in-law, I didn't have much of a problem with. I wanted to confide in them, because of the deep depression their sister and their niece's did to me and think that it is ok to treat people like that. 

    But when I tried to confide in my other  Sister in-law, she said she didn't want to get involved. 

    I tried to confide in in my brother in-law, but again I was shut down & told "I dont want to get involved, it's not my business". 

    ALL I wanted was a listening ear or some family support or "Are you OK?" and I did not get nothing. I didn't ask them to get involved, just to listen to me vent. 

    My husband is disappointed/gutted, because he thought that the one only brother who he expected to be more supportive, wasn't.

    I got on well with my Father in-law and rang him when I felt down alot, he always listened but sadly he died from an illness.

    So I feel alone when it comes to not having anybody to turn to. My Husband is always there, but he does alot for me & understands me. But he is upset that his own family don't support us emotionally, even when I mentioned feeling suicidal in the past. 

    We want to cut them out of our life. His sister disrespected him too in a text and called me a "stupid bi**h" just because I retaliated to her child who is older than me & is 30, who sent me a message first that I am a "stupid dumbf**k!". 

    5 stars for best answer! What's is your advice?

    If my son ever asks why I was never there for him, I was going to show him my Level 7 Y!A account. What do I do now?

    I quit my job, I drove my wife away, I neglected my son, and I lost at least 7 homes in the past 15 years. All of these sacrifices I made in order to be a Level 7 Yahoo! Answers user. I never made it beyond Level 2, but if I had been given more time, I know I would  have gotten to the top. With Y!A shutting down, it feels like I've wasted my entire life for nothing. I have no legacy to leave to my grandkids. I have nothing to show for all these years of absence. I have no justification for walking away from a lucrative career or from a loving wife and kid. How do I face my family at this point, whom have long since forgotten me? I always imagined that I would return to them, and that I would quell their justified anger with my incredible and immaculate Yahoo! Answers statistics. I thought I could leave a legacy for generations to aspire towards. I'm just a big fat nothing at this point

    I don’t know what to do?

    Hi! I’m 19 years old and I have a boyfriend. Yes, that’s how I plan to start this off. I have a boyfriend whom my parents hate for multiple reasons, some good reasons and some not so good reasons. The word hate is actually not a great way to explain it. My mom actually messages me once a week expressing how much she’s hates himZ my dad on the other hand doesn’t care because “it’s your life, I can’t tell you , an adult, what to do.” I’m currently in college and I have to sneak around to see him. I’m getting tired of it and I don’t want to spend my entire summer sneaking around to hang out with him. I also want to go on trips out of state with him, but I’m scared my mom will disown me and stop paying for my college. She has done this before, and I don’t really want to go through her emotional abuse... which is why I sneak around to hang out with him. 

    As young adults I do understand that there are rough patches in relationships. Sadly, I only told my mom the rough patches and never the good things because she always told me that he never loved me, so I would agree with her and cry to her about anything wrong he’s done to me. So yes she hates him and I just don’t know what to do anymore. I enjoy my time with him, and I want to have a easy and fun summer... possibly even few years without lying to my mom about me not being with him.

    Scared I'm going to go wild when I leave my parents home at 21 ?

    21 year old male. My parents restrictive behaviour such as giving me unfair curfew (8-9pm) and not letting me go out often, and it's got worse because of lockdown.

    I'm paranoid im going to go crazy if I move out and get into risky situations where I stay out all night by myself and get mugged, or do wild behaviour just to defy their standards, or just go out every night and let my money and studies suffer. I'm so paranoid about losing my way, and I also get negative thoughts such as me being out alone at midnight all alone.

    And then worrying that I'll be bored out of my mind. All I keep doing is ruminating about what I'd do each day and each evening and dreaming of what schedule id like etc.

    I got my vaccine and I’m getting invited places? ?

    I got my vaccine and grandma wants my daughter to have a sleepover but I still don’t feel comfortable. We’ve been telling her we want to wait a bit, we literally got our second dose last week. Grandma got her vaccine too but I still want to keep her and my family safe and stick to out door activities. I’m just trying to play it safe but family members are calling me ridiculous and over protective but I am because my family means a lot to me and I don’t want to risk it over a bbq or a sleepover. What do I do? And how do I tell grandma to stop asking?

    I hate my mother in law holding my 6m baby ?

    When my mother in law holds my baby and talks to her, etc she acts like she is her mother. She’s really dominating. Every time she holds her I get a really horrible feeling of resentment, cringe and nearly disgust. 

    It’s an “uncontrollable” feeling that just comes no matter how hard I try. Now my husband wants her to babysit once a week while I’m at work... she’s HIS baby too so I can’t say no and try to put a wedge between him and his family.. he has a right to share his daughter with his family, etc as I like to do with my family too. But no one in my family babysits....

    Is this just something I will get over with time and should I just be reasonable and let her babysit once a week? Maybe she’ll see how hard it is and  get over it quickly

    I just need to vent. Advice will be greatly appreciated, Or even just talk **** with me lol?

    My baby's father is such an asshole. He is verbally abusive, I mean dude went off calling me fat (which I admit, I really let myself go. I still fall into these depressive mood swings, idk) but I kid you not, I was just sitting there and he was talking his *** off calling me fat even like a child making jokes about me causing earthquakes and the crazy part, as soon as I snapped back and laughed at him mentioning the size of his dick, he shut up. 5 minutes later he was practically sobbing at me that what I had said was far worse than what he said. "I'd rather be called fat than told I have a small dick" lmao thinking about it now, what the **** was that? That's not even the worse part, he's quick to accuse me of being a shitty mother, even though I do nothing but take care of my baby, and if dare and bring up the crap he has pulled, another sob story. Or even "you wouldn't have had him if it wasn't for me, so that makes me more of a parent than you"....like am I being crazy to be bothered over all this? And the insults only got worse when I filed for child support. It took me nearly a year to really talk myself into filing, to really think "**** him" go forth. Wanna know what finally convinced me to do it? I had save $12,000 for my son. I saved that all on my own, all with the goal of adding more so that my son can do as he wanted with it. Preferably for a better education. He stole it all and refused to give it back.just can't handle his **** sometimes.  lol I AM LOOSING IT.

    Boyfriend tried to steal my expensive perfume for himself?

    I (23) cooked dinner for my boyfriend (37) and afterwards he went in my room and took a $300 perfume from my dresser. This perfume is a gift for my mom’s birthday that she’s always wanted. I realized it was gone and asked him if he’s seen it. Then I realized he smelled just like the scent. I asked him why he took it and he didn’t say anything. I begged him for it back and he wouldn’t budge saying jokingly that I would have to fight him for it. Finally after repeatedly begging, he went back to my room and slammed it on my dresser. He said that he liked the scent and he wanted to have it. In the past he has taken my body sprays and I found it odd. But this situation made me angry. After he gave it back, he yelled at me saying that I don’t deserve my business and car and I don’t buy him anything anymore. Due to the pandemic, I have to cutback so that I can continue to give my employees raises they deserve despite our slip in profits. W

    e’ve been together for less than a year and I bought him a smart watch, shoes, clothes and other gifts, meanwhile he hasn’t gifted me anything. I explained the gift was for my mom. He got even angrier saying that I was a selfish b*tch and I only care about myself and

     progressing my life. He said my refusal to marry him so that he can get a green card is ruining his life and that one day I’ll regret this. He is failing graduate school and will possibly have to return to his home country yet he still gets parties constantly instead of working hard.

    Why won't she let us buy the house?

    My brother in law is planning to buy my husbands parents house. I know my husband has always secretly wanted it. His brother still lives at home in his 30s and says that's why hes not moving out because this is gonna be his house. His mom told us today it wouldn't be for years from now or until she decides to seel or if she passes away both him and my husband would each own half therefore he would have to buy us out. Idk should I ask her if she would sell to us or just get our own house? It just makes us mad that we are financially on our own and her spoiled living with mommy son gets that house one day. Doesn't have to work for it just falls in his lap.
