LOL@bathroom humor, not so sure how humorous you would have found it if you were the "plungee".
I really can't even explain my family situation, I am very close to my parents, but not my brother and sister, I do love them very much, but it's just not a "huxable" type of family. We all live relatively near each other, but it's just a very weird situation.
We have had family get togethers, no many anymore, me and my brother have very similar personalities as far as wit and humor, my sister has it too, but always thinks she is the target of our jokes, when in all reality my brother will say things to me but because I am so quick he can never win, so I am not fun to pick on. To this day it seems like every get together something is brought up about
something I did to them as a child, just silly things but I have to feel that they just hold it against me in some way.
I am the middle child, and I was the "bad" one, I would probably get more spankings in a week than my brother and sister got in a life time. I was the rebellious one, the one that get into drugs and alcohol, but I always needed my parents, I was the very "needy" child, the one that never got myself together.
My brother and sister are what I look at as perfect people, wonderful jobs and I am happy for their success, I could have been a success, but I obviously chose a different route in life, that got me no where quick. My sister accuses me of never liking her, but there was an age difference between us that i took it very hard when my mom had another baby(I was 4 years old)for some reason I wanted to go live with other people.
I know there is always that one kid in the family that you wonder what the heck happened to them, where did they come from, are they even mine? I am that child, and I always wanted to please my parents, but really had a hard time doing it.
So I guess this could be a story for my therapist, strangely enough I don't really remember my parents being over bearing about
things, but I always wanted to hear We are so proud of you. They do say it from time to time now because of my sobriety, and I know they love me, I just think maybe there was a genetic mishap with me
