    I Am 51! (not 15) Mom And Dad.

    I am a 51 yr. old gentleman with a very sad history of drug addiction, unemployment, and have been to prison twice for supporting my habit. The second time I was locked up, I made a deal with God. I promised to never touch a street drug or commit another crime in my life if only...

    Some women feel the need to be treated like a

    child especially in a disciplining mode. Some relate to when they were being disciplined as a child in their child hood. I do this but discipline as an adult because to me it takes more to discipline and adult than a child. However I do know women have much more emotional...

    I am 20 years old and my mom treats me like a

    child. Every time I go out with the guy I'm seeing she needs me to have my phone on ring and not silent, when she calls I HAVE to answer and I need to always leave on time. I'm so ******* tired of this **** like I'm 20 not 5.

    Looks Or Character?

    I always get told how sweet and cute I am and it kind of embarrasses me. I am nearly 27 and a lot of people still think I am about 17/18. I am only just 5'3 tall and am very slim, I have tiny hands and feet and I guess that gives off a childlike impression. I have a VERY young...

    Because of my disability.

    It's an ANGER TRIGGER for me to be bossed around by people younger than me! They figure they can't pimp me around because I'm "retarded".

    I Look and Sound Young.

    I look and sound younger then I am. I've tried to change my clothing style or wear make up more often (even though it just doesn't feel like me) or cut my hair. But once people meet me, they think I am younger then what I really am. It's not really bad, they are only off by a...

    I am nearly 25 and my parents treat me like I

    am 16. Every time I stay at my boyfriend's place she gives me serious dirty looks and ignores me. Which I feel is extremely childish itself. If I wasn't a student I would be living with him already.

    My Father And My Older Sister Help Me Out

    My father and older sister help me with my affairs. I always have been very quiet, and I may appear mentally retarded (in the true sense) to them. I live with my father and he handles the household affairs. I may not be good at living on my own or taking care of my affairs...

    I get undermined constantly by my family.

    They act as if im an idiot... literally. I find it frustrating, especially when they dont give me a chance to speak. For instance, my baby niece was having a bad day, and I tried telling her that even though the morning wasnt going well for her- she still had the rest of the...

    Let me set the scene: Born in 1960, the youngest of six children to parents who really didn't want six children. Parent who did what any good Catholic would do: be fruitful and multiply, and then send their kids off to Catholic school. To this day, my siblings treat me as if I...

    I Deserve It Though.

    This is true about me.

    Everyone thinks they are better than me from my little nieces, to my co-workers, to my boss- anyone at all in fact. I have absolutely no idea why. I just assume their egos are simply so blinding that they simply can't see straight- instead they interact with the sterotype or...

    Got Sick And Now I Am Being Treated Like I Am 3

    How Infuriating !

    At 51 to be talked down to and at as if I were five is an insult. As much as I've been through and experienced, I don't take kindly to it. It's frustrating. And it always turns into an argument and hurt feelings.......usually mine.
