There is a LOT of chaos in my life right now.
Theres's just so much shit pushing at me from all sides.
I'm sitting here in tears.
I'll get through this, like I always do...one step at a time.

The first step I must take is to enable comment moderation on this blog. I really hate to do this, as I enjoy the discussions that occur in my comments even when I'm not here. Comment moderation tends to take the spontanaety out of discussions. I'm hoping this won't be a permanent condition.

I feel it's necessary to moderate my comments to prevent a certain bullying troll from destroying our fun and friendship. I know first-hand how bullying can erode a person's psyche. I WILL NOT TOLERATE BULLYING IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM!!

That is fine with me. I understand. I saw he was getting mean with some of your friends and I really just wanted to take and do something to his anatomy but wont mention that right now. Take it easy and hopefully this bully will leave you alone sooner or later. Wish there was some way of internet harrassement that he seems to be doing to you all. There should be a law against that. But lets hope he gets the point and see what happens. N.

Thanks Tweets. I don't care what he says to me, but it pisses me off when he abuses my friends. I LOATHE bullies!

Yes me too. Ever since school ended in May of 1996 for me. I wont tolerate it. Leave the comment moderation as long as need be. Like I said maybe he will get the message and leave you or the rest of the girls alone.

Tweets, he's already throwing a tantrum. I've already received 2 comments, that I rejected.

Tshsmom, I hope you feel better soon. I am all for monitoring your own comments. I don't think any one should be bullied. Though it's a bummer that one kid had to take a dump in the pool and ruin it for the rest of us. Hang in there!

No problemo, TSHSMOM. We understand. I am completely fried myself.

I'm sorry you're down right now but you are right - you will get through it (because what other choice do you have when you're a Mom and people depend on you?)
I'm sorry about the troll. I assume it's an anonymous one or you could just ask us all to inundate their site with stupidity. When you unmoderate again, I would recommend ignoring this person completely and request that everyone else do the same (with a permanent suggestion somewhere - not acknowledging any particular post). I have found these people do things to attract attention and manipulate others. If you react in the way they want, they win. If they have said something nasty, it doesn't mean it's true, it just shows what a horrible person they are.
Hugs.

I'm so sorry it's come to this. I apologize for anything I might have done to contribute to the problem. I hope HE isn't he main reason why you're down right now. I hope all the shit that's pushing you every which way resolves itself soon.

Angelique, LMAO at your analogy! Thanks, you brightened my day!

Monica, I knew you'd understand!

Jeannie, EXACTLY! We give our all for our families, but there are times when we wish someone would grab the reins for awhile.
You've profiled our troll quite accurately. He isn't anonymous anymore since I outed him and disabled anonymous comments.
He'd LOVE to have us all commenting on his blog. He thrives on insults and asinine arguments.
We've all tried to ignore him, but he just gets nastier. I won't let him demean my friends anymore!

WC, NONE of this is your fault!! You just happened to be his "victim du jour".
Vest isn't ANY part of the shit that's hitting me. However, his shit was a problem I could do something about with immediate results. I wish everything had such an easy solution. Too bad we don't all have a moderator button in our brains. ;)

Oh, I'd definitely love a comment moderation button in my brain! I hope you are feeling better soon.

Copycat! ;-) Seriously though, sorry about all the shit right now. What helps me get through my own personal hell is to look at the quality of person I am in comparison to those causing so much trouble. I'd much rather be me, than them. That makes me feel a little better. Then as for the other stuff, I have 2 options. First, I either look at other people who have way worse lives than me, and I feel a little better; or second, I dump all the clutter in boxes, cram them in out of the way places and pretend at least my home is picked up so it can't be that bad. I'll tackle the messes when I can. In 10 years, the messes won't be remembered so why worry about them now.

VV, you were first on the chaos stuff this time, weren't you?
I'm the same way. I've always told my kids that none of us would ever be rich because we lack the "ruthless factor" that's required. We'd rather be able to live with ourselves than do what it takes to be monetarily rich. We ARE rich in quality of life!

You're also right about looking around at the trials others have. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't see other people with problems that make me feel guilty for pitying myself.
