Does that thing have air holes?

I had an extreme case of depression in my early 20s brought on by multiple negative events, including the deaths of my best friend and her mother from long illnesses, the collapse of my lifelong career dreams, the messy divorce of my parents and the effects of a lifetime of untreated and severe ADD (in addition to other things). I realize everyone reacts differently, but at no time during this period did I treat my loved ones poorly. Another close friend was living with me at the time - literally staying in my dining room for 8 months - and at no time did I lash out at her. I also was not verbally abusive towards my romantic partners during that time. I knew I was in a bad place, and i wasn't blaming it on anyone else. It's one thing to lash out and RECOGNIZE that there is a problem. It's another thing entirely to lash out and continue as if this is acceptable behavior. I don't believe there was any indication in the LW's letter that her husband was recognizing the existence of a problem. And that's why I don't think she should stick around, even if it IS simply depression.

If she moves out, she's still on the lease. This guy doesn't seem like someone I'd trust to pay the rent, so she could be on the hook for that. I don't know the legality of it, but maybe it would be better to move his stuff out and change the locks the next time he leaves the house.

And um, what's a squart?

I'm sorry, but if I was with a guy and he didn't fall apart laughing when something like that happened, I would have to dump him.

What. The. Fuck. I feel like I just touched the void by clicking on that.

Jesus. Just burn them. There is no reason to have them. I mean, really, are you going to sit around whacking off to a video of your 15-year-old self doing it with another 15-year-old? It's not like it's stuff you can show at family get-togethers or reunions. Keeping them (let alone COPYING and DISTRIBUTING them) is just not worth the risks. Honestly, it just seems like a particularly self-destructive streak of narcissism to insist on hanging on to them - no matter how awesome you think it was, what you did wasn't all that special. Destroy the films so you don't have to worry about it ever again.

Is it just me or does it seem like the town's residents are working really hard to hasten its obvious downward spiral?

A new business, multiple young children and a sex life that I, at least, see as utterly exhausting and far too much work. Ease off the business, ease off the social/sex life, focus on your kids and each other. Get some counseling. DIAL IT THE FUCK DOWN. Take a week off if you can - spend the first half of the week reconnecting with each other and then the second half of it spending some quality time with your children who are probably feeling pretty damn adrift and insecure right now.

I know when I am under deadline at work, my stress can lead to unpredictability. Sometimes want to have sex like a damn bonobo and sometimes I just want to find a quiet place to lie down and turn off my brain. The description of the lifestyle in this letter practically made my severely ADD brain explode. It struck me as two people losing interest in each other because of too many distractions and stressors.

SIS's intentions are good, but I kind of wonder about the wisdom of hooking up a guy with fairly severe mental health issues with a sex worker. As someone with mild OCD, I know that addressing the "immediate" concern or obstacle often just ends up opening up a whole bunch of other concerns. I feel like this is where a sex-positive therapist would be HUGELY helpful to guide the process or something (but how likely is it they'll be able to find one of those?). This guy's problems are clearly NOT because of his virginity, so I'm thinking the aftermath could be kind of messy.

In any case, the popular vote shouldn't matter. It's a civil right and civil rights actually should not be put to a popular vote. They are fundamental. This really is a decision for those dang "activist" judges. But it's going to happen either way.

I wonder when Rush is going to collapse and die under the weight of his bile and moral corruption...
