mental illness is so so VERY ugly. I've watched my mother, 2 sisters and my own daughter go through bipolar disorder. personally I think it's harder on those close to the one w it. I understand the guilt, but her mother was very sick. none of this was her fault. she couldn't stop it. no matter how hard she tried.

The story about ruining the wedding night, that happened at my cousin's wedding. it was his cousin's and friends who got into the room and did all that crap. bride and groom were pissed. here's the kicker.

You have a wife that you shared hundreds of memories together. You laughed with your family from bottom of your heart. Although I know there were difficulties sometimes. It is inevitable. But you lived every second that you could. Its quite different of living but wish to die e

wrong "too" on the title of this episode. For anyone that can't handle the sound of someone sniffing maybe skip this episode

"Next logical move" ... sends nude pictures in attempt to split up a couple because they are kind of annoying. Wow. And this gal is still acting like she is in the right.

I kept YOWLING, this is bananas and absolutely hilarious. I can't condemn her actions. I just can't. What a train wreck.

202. I think that she needs to really think about the reasoning as to why she won't tell her grandma. the knowledge after the fact of abuse from Patrick to grandma has nothing to do why she's not willing to tell her she lied once upon a time. she knew she was lieing then an was able to justify it for th want of attention. that's all she needs to say. the two incidents are separate. I think she's grabbing on to that and using it to soften the blow amd make it look selfless vs Being a kid and needing attention so badly she went the route that she went. but I agree no good will come from saying anything now.

Poor woman. Her husband was an abuser, her grandchild is a manipulator and a liar.
