    I'll leave it there for now but there are a ton more.
    That is awful

My mum actually thought I deserved to be assaulted by my dad at the age of 17
    aww so sorry to hear that! Huge hugs for you.

    So my MIL says to me the day after I have my last session of chemo "Now you can really make an effort to look after yourself and look nice"
    OMG, that's really nasty of her. I hope you said something back to her!! Jeez, you would think some people would just ''think'' before they speak!

    Ana Gram & Lemonhead - I am speechless. I can't believe how heartless people can be. I truly hope the people in question look back & regret their horrid words.

    I haven't had anything terrible happen but one thing recently that I thought was quite rude is when we gave birth to our bubba my Dad announced it to everyone via text msg. He said when I mentioned we would have liked to announce her arrival "Well you wouldn't expect me NOT to tell people would you?!". Ah yep Dad, that's exactly what I'd expect.

    You'd think hey?

    I don't think intention was to be nasty.....she just speaks what literally comes into her head.

    But it just floored me because I felt like I really kept it together on so many levels during my treatment: I looked after my ch'n, I kept working part time, and I worked hard to look nice - despite the spots, baldness, bloating and greenish tinge

    But hey, maybe she just didn't think I was making the effort

    I joined Jenny craig about 2 yrs ago about 6 months before our wedding.... I only wanted to lose about 5 kg ... After my second visit the lady I was seeing told me when I craved " junk" I needed to sing to myself

    " here comes the bride, big fat and wide"

    I was only a size 12, that really upset me and I refused to go back... Lost all the weight I needed ( and more) on my own :-)

    My awful sil came to visit in hospital just after id had our 1st child. He was the first grandson on my husbands side. (My sil has 3 adult girls, she and her hubby are much older than my hubby and i) anyway, id just had ds1 and was very excited with our gorgeous newborn. Crazy awful sil walks into my hospital room. Looks at ds1 and says "i knew you would have a f*cking boy". And then sits there with the sulks. I tell u what, it killed the excitement that's for sure.

    When pregnant with my unplanned baby I announced to family and friends. As it happened an old school 'friend' was pregnant at the time but wasnt telling anyone just in case, she announced and told friends that I had stolen her thunder because I told people we were expecting (I didnt even know she was as we didnt talk often!). But that wasnt the issue, sadly she lost her bub and told my best friend that it should have been my baby that had died, I hoped it was the grief talking and then later when I left my partner she told the same friend that I got everything that I deserved. We no longer speak at all!!
