Re: Dear ladies, I need a sympathetic ear.......

Fingers crossed, carsam. Prayers said. Confidence fully in place.

You know, carsam, I have discovered something. Now, I don't know much. Not much at all about this horrible disease. I go hour by hour like the rest of you. But I got 40 kinds of fed up with dad's kibitzing about MY family about a year ago. He hated my 12 yr old son - for absolutely no reason, had no use for my husband....yadda yadda yadda. I listened until i finally just got plain ole' mad.

And mid rant, I said to him, quietly but firmly, "That's quite enough." He stopped and looked at me. I looked back, steadily. Unwaveringly. He said, "What?" I said, "I said, that will be quite enough."


Carsam, he shut up. And has not mentioned it again.

Worth a try.
