This is Matilda’s commentary on a my post of frustration yesterday regarding Pickle’s medical problems and I’ll be the first to admit that my post yesterday was a bummer, but those of you who have actually been a part of my life for the last year or so, know I could’ve said a lot more and been justified. I “suck it up” all the time, put on my strong face and push forward BUT occasionally, because I am human, to my friends, my family and my
husband, in my own time and space, I confide.
Matilda is obviously ^ not a friend.
I could only wish that any of that and what is going on was imagined. I guess when you haven’t had to stand by watching your kid have a grand maul seizure and there being absolutely nothing you can do you couldn’t possibly comprehend it. It must be nice to take your children’s health for granted. That’s a luxury I would know NOTHING about.
Oh and is our “middle class” lifestyle supposed to secure us from all that? What the hell does that even mean? What was that about? Jealousy? I mean how ridiculous can you get?
husband and I aren’t middle class anyways. I am a stay-at-home Mom and my husband makes a mere $32k a year. That’s for 5 of us to live off of and pretty much just covers our monthly expenses. Anything else we want/need is paid for with side work. We have worked hard to climb out of our financial crap and buy a house and car and everything else we have. We’ve both worked hard, made sacrafices and nobody did us any favors. So don’t expect me to feel bad or apologize for it anytime soon.
And as far as trying to gain attention away from my children…..well Miss Matilda would be an expert on the subject. Nuff said.
God, there is soooooooooo much more I could write about her “character” or lack thereof. But I’ve just stuck to responding to the issue at hand. Matilda can’t really handle taking what she dishes out. I could return the insults but I really don’t want to give her any more attention or any more excuses, as I’m sure that’s what this is all about anyways.
However, I will say this…….
I think I’ve earned the right to be a little whiny or GOD FORBID shed a tear when I need to. It’s a more healthy way of dealing than grabbing a bottle if you ask me. I’m thinking maybe Matilda should “suck it up”, grow a heart, learn what being a friend means or just learn to be a little more consistent in not caring and minding her own damn business.
