I'm having one of those days. I'm tired and sick and fed up with my family so I decide to vent. Then I get told to quit whining because I should just be grateful my husband lets me stay home (huh?) and I shouldn't complain since I chose to have 5 kids.
My dad was big on that last one. He believes the kids driving me literally insane is punishment for being stupid enough to have kids in the first place and I don't deserve to have a break or to ever complain. No wonder my mom drank so much when I was a kid.

too much.... well that IS a matter of perception.
It IS a vague phrase "too much".
Perhaps spread your vents out instead of venting to one person, or find a person with a higher thresh hold for venting, or do it here where you are just one of millions and wont necessarily be singled out.
