Re: advice about marrying

I've heard it said "Don't go to bed angry," but if I followed that I could go days without sleep! What we do instead is say to each other "You know what, you are REALLY pissing me off right now,...

Re: Need advice on my brother

You're right, Snafu. I'm going to be strong but it's not easy. He didn't end up going, which is a BIG relief. I definitely needed a break from the drama.

Re: Need advice on my brother

I'll be honest, I'm not for certain. I know at one time when he was younger we were told Bipolar but it seems like there's more to it than that. He doesn't have extreme highs but he seems to have the...
