New Member with Adult Steps.
I have been stalking this site for about a year now and thought it high time i created an account!
I am currently finding things very,very tough with being a SM,and decided that after SD causing a huge 'hoo ha',over christmas,and carrying out yet 'another' spiteful act towards me,for no good reason(other than i so happen to breathe), i thought i needed to an outlet of somekind.This long standing issue of SK's refusing to accept me and assuming a mob like mentality has almost resulted in me divorcing DH,because he is so scared of confronting them.
I will blog my story another time,and what i have come to learn,in the hope that i might even be able to other's who feel as isolated and as dismissed as i feel on my bad days.
I come from a very loving and gentle natured family,i have even had two step mothers with lots of step siblings who i adored and had a super relationship with,and so,even after 8 incredibly long years,i still find it very difficult to understand all the hate,resentment,and cruel tricks that SK's have played on BD and myself,i am tired of DH remaining fearful of his adult kids,and what they will do if he confronts them about thier abuseive attitudes(his daughter reduced him to tears the only time i ever saw him call her out on her rude behaviour).
After the incident involving SD over the festive period,i am now resigned to the fact that i cannot change her behaviour,neither can i control how DH deals with her,however,i now have to remove myself from 'their' harmful,and dysfunctional relationship,so that i am no longer affected by it,i am pregnant,and the stress SD has caused lately is just no longer going to be my problem.
Anyways........just wanted to say a quick 'hi' and keep it short.
