My grandma tried to make me eat. She yell at me at the dinner table. I am a picky eater which means I am a super taster. I have more tastebuds than the average person.

She was a County Home Demonstration Agent and thought she knew all about nutrition. Bragged about eating a “variety of foods”.

I did not have Chinese food until I was about 22. My dad refused to go to a Chinese place under any circumstances. I did not have Japanese food until I was 35 and a date took me to Benihana.

Mom would stand around and eat raw bell peppers, raw onions and raw tomatoes like they were yummy. Well guess what? I have a deadly nightshade allergy, which includes tomatoes and bell peppers. And guess who I inherited that allergy from? Dad.

Yeah, I think a lot of us had crazy parents. My mom had some serious problems. Dad was a dry drunk, but he at least was much more sane and rational than mom. There were lots of things I got no advice about, and as a result, I made a lot of mistakes just from not knowing any better. We were your basic uptight white middle class family.

She was addicted to prescription tranks. Heavy ones, not just valium. Stuff that would knock a normal person on their ass for a couple https://www.drachen-spiele.de of days. Now, they track the prescribing of dangerous drugs. Back in the canada goose outlet sale toronto sixties, they gave housewives lots of drugs so they wouldn raise hell. She became a useless zombie. Grandma was the domineering battleaxe and mom was the good little girl. When I was growing up, you didn talk about your problems. Only “crazy people” went to a psychiatrist. Psychology and sociology weren real sciences. They were black arts. I graduated from high school in 1972.

I didn know what the problem was, just that they drove me crazy. canada goose uk online store Now I know it called “lack of boundaries” and “no privacy” and “overprotective parents”.. So I went to a counseling center. I got my parents to go to a sliding scale counseling center, but canada goose black friday new york it didn help. They canada goose repair uk continued their griping canada goose outlet store near me their whole lives and never resolved anything. They were married for 53 years until dad died in 2000.

I probably have PTSD from various things that canada goose outlet store winnipeg have happened in my past. There are a lot of goose outlet canada things that people in the thread have said they didn know at the time was abusive. That good that you stopped remembering it vividly.

cheap canada goose uk I think Patton and MacArthur were both assholes who give the military a bad name. MacArthur for being a publicity hound and disobeying Harry Truman. Patton for the famous incident where he was going through a hospital full of wounded soldiers and slapping the piss out of two injured soldiers, and telling them to “just get over it” when the guyshad what they called “Shell shock” and “Combat fatigue”.
