Eight Everyday Experiences I Am SICK Of Having As A Female

What Females Are Sick Of-on www.bettysbattleground.com

This female had a garbage weekend.

If you have been following my blog at all, you know I’ve actually had a pretty terrible month.

I don’t want to go into ALL of it, but for those of you who have been following: My daughter was in the hospital for pneumonia. I had to take her there right after seeing The Ex in court to have my protection order renewed. The renewal was granted, but I still had to see and hear the idiot. Just because every time I see him in court he says or submits something which ultimately helps my case, does not mean the encounters aren’t triggering. And, after this annoying and triggering court encounter, I took my daughter to the doctor and she ended up being admitted to the hospital for three days with pneumonia. She is out and better now; every one is better now, except for coughs that bring up thick gobs of yellow phlegm, but I am exhausted. And I have a lot of annoyance built up in me.

I had a sorta humorous post planned for today, and although once upon a time humorous did mean phlegmatic, I just don’t have it in me. Sorry…next week…

What I do have in me are complaints. But I’m going to try to at least make my complaints useful.

Here is a list of everyday experiences I am just plain SICK of dealing with as a female; things you all just need to stop doing RIGHT NOW.

Before some guy out there in the vast wide web decides he needs to say, “Hey guys deal with stuff too…” yeah that’s true. But I’m not a guy, so you write that list. I am a female. This is my list.

If you’re the type to just skip ahead instead, I’ll give you a brief summary of what this is all about:

The “Rocking Motherhood Challenge” challenges mothers to write about ten ways in which they are winning at this whole crazy motherhood thing, and then to invite a couple more moms to join in. I was invited by Stephenie from Blended Life Happy Wife, and in my last post I not only accepted, but decided to take it up a notch by discussing the ways in which having PTSD has helped me ‘rock motherhood.’  My first five are in that Part One.  Last chance to read it first because here are the second set of five reasons why having PTSD makes me an awesome mama…Therapist-Assisted Edition!
