  • I would stay away from them as well, all that negativity isn't good for you and will kill your self-esteem.

  • That's my problem I have had this crap all my life and now I deal with very low self - esteem and depression, on top of my Meneire's Disease and losing almost all of my hearing to the point when my son calls from Iraq I have to have him repeat stuff and I also have to ask my husband to do the same and then he gets mad cause I ask him to repeat something or he hollers. He has no patience for anything other then what he wants in life. My family is all scattered out in three states and I can't even stand to be around them for to long, right away they have to statr putting me down for something or other. I feel like I can never say or do anything right anymore.
