Octomom Nadya Suleman 'Hates' Her Kids

Octomom Nadya Suleman 'Hates' Her Kids for Good Reason

Posted by Julie Ryan Evans

Nadya SulemanNadya Suleman, better known as "Octomom," has seemingly gone over the edge. While she's cracked a bit before, she's usually maintained a smile and peace-and-light presence when it comes to her enormous brood. Some recent comments she has made, however, are downright disturbing.

She told In Touch, she "hates" her babies, they "disgust" her, and that her older children are "animals." It gets worse.

I have no money to pay for the children's school, food, or the mortgage. The only way I can cope is to lock myself in the bathroom and cry. Sometimes I sit there for hours and even eat my lunch sitting on the toilet floor-anything to get peace and quiet. Some days I have thoughts about killing myself. I cannot cope.

She did add, "Obviously I love them, but I absolutely wish I had not had them." Still my heart breaks for those children who will inevitably read those words someday. For all the tough cards they were dealt being born into the lives they were, this may be the most damaging of all.

But as horrific and shocking as her words about her own children are, and as much as I believe she uttered them at least in part for more publicity, I also have a certain amount of sympathy for Nadya. I would never say I hate my children, because even at their most rotten, I still love them, but I certainly have a strong amount of dislike for them and their actions at times. And I only have two.

No, she shouldn't have had all the children she did, but she has them now, and I just can't imagine how anyone could cope in her situation. The woman has 14 children. Sure the Duggars can handle more than that, but there are two of them, and they didn't have EIGHT TODDLERS to raise simultaneously.

Just typing those words makes my brain spin. My daughter was born around the same time as her eight babies -- January 2009 -- and she alone is enough to make me want to eat my lunch off the toilet floor some days. How anyone could deal with the temper tantrums times eight, and the nightmare of potty training times eight, and hearing "MOMMY!" times eight plus six more doesn't seem humanly possible.

So while I'm sure the world will use her recent comments to once again say "told you so" and slap her for what she's done, what she really needs is help -- some serious help. Anyone in her situation would.

 

Do you have any sympathy for Nadya Suleman?

i think those people who want to help her can send her money...which is what she wants anyway...and stop blaming it on society...we pay taxes too...what is SHE doing??? to support the kids she claimed to want?? How much MORE help can she get from taxpayers??

I blame the doctor, and the medical association that licensed him (and hasn't pulled it yet). This is an ethical issue that reads more or less: willing to do absolutely anything for the money.

Quoting aneela:

she had them as a publicity stunt...thats how I see it...not that she was married and couldnt have babies and this happened when they went to a doctor...her story really is sad and should never be allowed to happen again...

Quoting LuLu5J:

I am sympathetic because I know how hard it is to raise kids but it's her own fault.  I don't understand why she wanted to have more when she already had 6!!  Even one more was one too many.

i would agree with you linda to a certain extent...course all those involved should not have done this...but its not like they came and knocked on HER door and say "hey wanna have 8 kids at once and who cares how they get raised after??"

This doesn't surprise me. She only had those kids because she thought she would get fame and fortune like Kate. I feel awful for her kids. She does not deserve them.

True... but a doctor who knows what's involved in having babies should have some responsibility in the decision to implant 8 zygotes at once. 

Twits off the street can go in and ask for any medical procedure they want: whether or not a professional complies is the professional's choice.

I thought it was actually 12, but only the 8 took.

Either way, I agree with you.
