Re: Oh boy! Dad is taking us to dinner. (vent)

I was agreeing with someone else who posted on SRS's posting. I just find it strange that unless I am responding the way someone wants me to then I am not allowing her to vent. I added my own struggles in regards to someone else's response.

Not too long ago I saw a post from I believe a newbie where they were venting about their struggles and SRS responded with something to the effect, "Well that's the pot calling the kettle black". I think that there is certain group that plays favorites or has a double standard- I find that unfortunate.

As for downplaying my struggles as you described me as a "married high income stepmom" as compared to you others' who do it on one "paycheck alone with no child support, not married, and your ex f-ing with your children and you every chance he gets". I appreciate the kudos, but it doesn't take away the rest.

Let me just add a FTR--- we are not a high income household because the cash fairy dropped a bag of cash in our laps. I make 3x's what I did ten years ago as H makes several times what he did because we WORKED for it. Just as probably most all of you have. We struggled with one income for a couple years because my then 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with a disease that left her unable to open her eyelids. Yes, a voluntary movement such as opening her eyelids was impossible for her. I spent weeks in the hospital with her to get her diagnosed and treated. Left was a medication that cost $150/month on a small income was tough. When other parents speak about their preemies or rough life in regards to their child's health...I don't bring up my child and downplay their preemie or sick child because mine has an illness that is very rare for children to be diagnosed with in our country. Their struggle is still important, I'm just adding on that I have been there. Maybe not the same exact situation, but I have been there too.

I guess its perspective. Just as you enjoy SRS truth/human feelings, I enjoy others' on the opposite of the spectrum. Doesn't make hers wrong or right- I'm just sayin'.
