My Life Is An Ongoing Soap

I am living proof that you can be living a life of a soap opera. Every since I can remember I have always been in some kind of drama. I had my first child young. Her father died while I was in my early 20's. I married a looser and had 2 more children. He left me. So I was raising 3 children alone and still in my 20's. I met a younger guy who was also a jerk and he was verbally and physically abusive so we broke up. I finally, married a wonderful guy(so I thought at the time) and we have been together for 23 years(no sex for 13 years) We have a daughter who is the apple of my eye. I love her dearly. She has never given me any problems. My other children are always begging for something. My Mother is in the beginnings of dementia. My sister lives with her and has a son who is a thief and is on drugs. She refuses to put him out and calls me complaining about everygthing. My Mother also calls me about 10 times a day if she thinks that I'm at home even if I doing my paperwork or not. Since my husband doesn't believe in sex anymore, I had an affair for 10 years and when I tried to leave him, he tried to kill me. I am on meds and therapy. I'm bouncing off the wall most of the time. I'm praying, meditating, exercising and now fasting for the spring. This is only the good part of my soap opera. I could go on and on and on.My life has so many twists and detours off the beaten path. I could write several books and still have many to go. Every day there is a challenge and some drama going on. Erika Kane has nothing on me.

Sorry if i sounds offensive, but it sounds like a lot of this was brought on... I mean, it's pretty much HORRIBLE to put your one daughter above the other children, did you ever stop to think that maybe the way the others act and ask for things is a way of trying to get some attention from you? Or maybe you just aren't actually there for them. Should you not have known these other men before you ended up with them, or having kids with them? You sister and mothers drama can be dealt with on their own accord, and you don't have to make that "drama" yours.

Some us are just magnets for it even if we may be responsible for it. I used to believe in Karma but now I have to wonder what the heck I did. I might have treated a few people badly as a young adult, but sometimes you gotta wonder, there are murderers running around who get shorter sentences.
