O/T I Need to go to HR About my Boss, but am Really Scared

Evil3's picture

I have a psychotic boss. He has yelled at me and then when people called him on it, he gave a stupid apology and said, "well, I don't know how sensitive you are, so I'm sorry." OK, way to go saying over and over about not knowing how sensitive I am. A$$hole!

What do I do?!

In my past 2 blogs, I've explain most of the crap I deal with with my DH, SDs and their BM. A few people have told me to leave because the situation I'm in is toxic for me and my son (my bio son with DH). I know I'll feel guilt for leaving SDs and I'll be heartbroken from all the love and effort I've put into raising them as my own. And I love my DH very much.

DH doesn't want to work but wants to spend money

I've seen the warning signs for a while but I'm kicking myself for being so stupid. When DH and I were dating he lied about his work history. Not huge lies, but small enough that I didn't realize he jumped from job to job every few months. He said things like, "I've worked at such and such a place for three years," when in reality he had technically worked there for three years, just not consecutively. As far as I can tell he's never held the same job for more than a year at a time. 

Tsunami of Emotions

Everyday is a whirlwind of different emotions. One day everything is perfect and the next is a disaster. I've been with my DH for 4 years now and I've acted as a full time mother to his 2 daughters from his previous marriage. BM sees the girls when it's convenient for her and not when she's supposed to by court order. I've looked up requirements to adopt your stepchildren in my state and we have the upper hand on all grounds.

Stressed out, stepkids hate me

My boyfreind and I have a son together and another baby on the way. I love him and my son. They mean the world to me. When my boyfriend and I started dating, I found out he took in 4 kids from a sibling about 3 years prior to us dating. I thought he had such a big heart for doing that and thought I could handle the kids. I ended up moving in with him after finding out I was pragnant. At first things where good. The kids who were 13, 12, 11, 10, at the time got along pretty well for about the first 6 months. Its probably cause I didnt interfere with their lives for the first few months.

Facepalm

My brother just found out his gf is pregnant. I brought up making sure he goes to court to get parental rights (in my state, with unmarried couples, only the mom has rights). He went off on this tangent about how she's such a wonderful person (they've been together all of 5 months) and how she would never keep his child from him. 
 

I think he was a little offended when I laughed (like really hard). This is going to be interesting

Kids are mostly grown and we survived. Or did we? Need advice about future after blended kids are grown.

My husband and I met 13 years ago and instantly fell very much in love. He was outgoing and fun, a hard worker and good to my kids. Instantly fixing broken bikes and giving piggy back rides, I was thrilled to death to have found someone to complete me and my kid’s lives. Both divorced  a few years prior, I had 4 boys ages 4-10 and he had 3 girls 8-13. Our kids knew each other from attending school together and from living in a small town. They seemed to get along great. We thought together, we could make anything work and married within a year of meeting.
