    Breastfeeding Is For Babies

    I find relationships frustrating when the mom is too involved. My ex had an issue with his mom acting as if she was the girlfriend. Constantly texting and calling him asking what he was doing that night, who he was going to be with, when he would be back, would he like to go to a...

    Relationships Are the Hardest Thing In Life

    Where to start?  I find relationships, just not with your loved ones, but even with family very difficult. I've had a very strange life.  I had a estranged relationship with my father; he was both physically and verbally abusive.  At the age of 17 it climaxed...
