How Do I Make My Mom Believe That I Need Reading Glasses? Hi 🙂
I’m a 13 year old girl. Both my parents are eye doctors. Last year my mom gave me an eye exam, and I had a small prescription in both eyes. I’m also home-schooled, so I have to go to work with my parents everyday (they own a small business together) so I get to see all the cool new glasses come in. I’m afraid that if I tell my mom I can’t see the letters on my papers or on my computer, she’ll think I’m lying because I just want to have a pair of glasses. Plus my best friend just got a pair of reading glasses because she couldn’t see the white board in her class room. How do I make her believe me? I’ve asked her for an eye exam but we’re always too busy. My dad won’t give me one either. I don’t think I could make him believe me. He always agrees with my mom. My little brother has reading glasses and sometimes I sneak them because they make my vision slightly better. Both my parents need glasses so I know it runs in the family. I know it’s not because of money because I could probably get the glasses for free, I don’t know what her problem is! I’ve tried telling her once and couple weeks ago but she laughed and said “yeah right! I bet you just want those cute new glasses that just came in” I hate it! I seriously can’t see! I had to have my little brother type this for me because I couldn’t see the letters on the keyboard!
Thanks in advance! 😀
Am I Being Too Mean In This Situation? About a year ago I had an older friend (he was 45 at the time I was 25) move in to my apartment to help me out with the rent and get him out of the place he was living now that he didn’t like. We agreed to him paying $300 a month to stay with me and that would include his rent, water, gas, electric, and internet. The overall rent for the apartment is $525 a month with no utilities included so what I was asking from him was a little more than half of his rent alone if we split everything evenly. It was a nightmare from the get go. A couple days after he moved in we found out he brought bed bugs from his old place to my apartment. He was able to get an exterminator in a few days later so I didn’t hold that against him but I lost my comforter, some clothes, and a suitcase due to that fiasco. He also had trouble with the $300 a month because he worked a flooring/construction job that is touch and go. By December 2012 he owed me $340 in back rent. I lost my job that December and he wasn’t working either but we scraped by going to the food kitchen and I got unemployment so my landlord worked with me. During my unemployment he would get mad at me because I liked to play with a racquetball in my room and he said I messed with his concentration while he worked on his computer business (he tries to fix computers for people on the side for $50 a pop) and I got really mad because by then he owed me almost $900 in rent. I told him its my house and if I want to bounce my ball in my room I can do it. He said he doesn’t care what I do in my room as long as I keep the door closed. This infuriated me because I let him set up his tv and desktop computer in the living room because his bedroom is small. Earlier in his stay he had complained about me hanging out in the living room and distracting him and now he’s complaining about me being in my room and its my house (he’s not on the lease)! I really soured on him staying with me then but I knew he had no where to go so I just put up with it. Plus I got a job two weeks after that incident so we were out of each other way for a bit. Months drag on into May 2013 and he owes me $600 in back rent, actually he owed a little over $1,000 but I said $600 since he just started working flooring full time. Well in mid May he gets a $2500 paycheck and I ask him to just go ahead and pay the $600 he owes me so he can be finally caught up. He balks and says he needed to get a bike to ride around in but has plans to pay me off with his next check. At that point I was sick of giving him rides so I said fine and he bought a $1,300 motorcylce instead of paying the $600 in back rent he owes me or the $250 it would cost to fix his motor in his car. At that point I want him gone and kept dropping hints its time for him to move on but he never took it. So I decided to allow my friend and her son to stay for a couple weeks thinking he’ll get the idea I want him gone. I didn’t tell him she was coming because I thought its my house and I’ll have who I want visiting. In hindsight probably would have been better to tell him, anyway he comes in drunk and yells at them for being there. Ask her 9 year old son if he can go get another beer and get drunker and tells her to go live with the state. At that point I’d had enough and told him he needs to leave. He got mad and threatened to beat me up (put me in a ditch was his exact words) and called me the n word, I’m black and he is white. I told him that confirms he needs to go and the next day he got an apartment lined up for September 2nd. Lo and behold the man goes riding on his bike drunk this last Sunday the 1st and winds up getting in an accident which causes him to get a DUI, reckless driving charge, no insurance charge, and he lost his job because his leg is broken. He is supposed to be gone but comes in yesterday and I tell him he’s got to go. He says he will leave the next morning and when he woke me up an hour ago with the washer I came out and said he needs to go by noon. He called me an ahole and said everyone he has talked too said I’m a huge jerk for treating him this way. I’m fed up. I’m sick of supporting him. He says I’m unbearable because I don’t clean up the kitchen and I keep the house too hot. Am I being a jerk here, or am I right to not want to live with him anymore? Sorry for the long read.
Is It A Trend In Psychology To Call(for Counselors, Psychologist Other Prof. In Mental Health? Is it a trend in psychology for psyhcologist/psychiarist to call their patients “losers” or to secretly claissfy some of them as such?
I asked because I took on a temp job at a small business where the owner is going to college to be a psychiatist. He did ask a lot of personal questions (non job related) of myself an another aplicant. He let her work a day and called her a “loser”.
I also remember a girl at a career development class where we took the Myers-Briggs test. She pointed out this one guys results and said her dad told her that type are the losers. (Her dad was also either a psychologist or psychiatrist. I can’t remember which.)
Is this a trend? or are there certain types of people who are losers?
Is it possible the dr/psychologist just have a strong dislike for people with certain problems and say this? I am thinking not. He said it to face before he let her go.
