when u need sympathy who do you turn to?

I would love to be able to turn to my mom, but the truth is, that I know that she isn't able to give me sympathy at all. She just has shown me over and over again that I can not get any kind of a sympathetic reaction from her if I am sick, wounded, tired, or feeling less than perky.
I go to my husband or friends. that's really all I have..who do u guys go to??

  • normally hubby and my friends, i do go to my mom but not as often as my hubby adn friends. I dont like to worry her but when i am in full meltdown mode i call her, it just depends what the situation is, sometimes only mom can help.

  • Rarely my hubby he is a fixer not a sympathizer but he tries, my mom is over the top, and my friends are rude about stuff so I just learn to deal, and my hubby does his best.

  • your ex husband love it anon138 that is truly great you're very lucky!!!!

    i come to cm and church, my grown kids one son and two daughters. My mother and husband should be married to each other. There's both egomaniacs suited very well for one another. I'm blessed to have the kids I have and great church service hours.
    Church is just calming for me and keeps me focused on what's most important to me -peace and rest if I have that I can deal with anything. Church brings those more often for me. And cm is great for sympathy and sometimes a kick in the &$%.
