    I just need a place to vent.

    I can't share with my husband. My stepdaughter reacts to everything I say or do. I'm walking on egg shells around her. They never include me in their discussions. It's always papa papa papa, even when I'm right there. She is on the aspergers spectrum. She doesn't know...

    My husband has a child with a woman

    who still has deep feelings for him. It's been over two years and she knew about me when they had this child. ( which is a long story in itself ) basically I've only seen this child twice because she is "uncomfortable" around me and keeps making excuses. Today was the first day...

    I really need to vent,

    especially because I don't have any friends to vent to. They all spread rumors about me and stabbed me in the back 2 years ago. Recently I got married in December, ever since seems like nothing has gone right. I have Fibromyalgia and so i'm constantly in pain. Also my husband...

    Its not easy being the stepmom.

    Especially of a teen. Its difficult enough but when they play the your not my real mom card all the time and dont respect you what can you really do. Seems like I am giving up but its very stressful.
