    I knew what you meant too OP, but also know how vulnerable some people are. Also dietary restrictions are painful, expensive and inconvenient, no laughing matter.

    I really think the OP intended this to be a light-hearted thread and did not intend to offend anyone. I definitely see this phenomenon around, a bit like when you're a kid and complain about going to school, and Grandpa says: "Well in MY day we had to walk TWENTY MILES through knee-deep snow to get to school!".

    Just a silly example, but I think it's this sort of exaggeration that the OP was referring to?

    I answered in Benji's thread about people saying how "lucky" others are. I'm "lucky" to have a 9yo, babies are so exhausting, I wouldn't know what it's like to have a baby. Yep, luck, I won her in a raffle lol. I didn't go through pregnancy, birth, baby, toddler and preschool years at all!

    I totally get where you are coming from

    I went to a wedding last weekend and it was my first night away from DS (15 months)

    I mentioned this to my cousin and she started going on about how her first night away from her daughter was when she was two months old and she was admitted to hospital. It was so hard for her because it was her first and only baby and she almost died in childbirth to get her.

    I shouldn't roll my eyes but she was SO melodramatic about it!

    Frankly, if you have been around here long enough to know me and how I work, you would know that I always speak generally and 99.999% of the time, I am asking things out of sheer curiosity. Your post to me seems like you think I regularly start threads to start fights and be mean to people...I would honestly like to see when and where I have done this in the past.
    It probably did come across as a personal attack and I apologise my wording was out of line.

    I think I get where you're coming from on this.

    I'm pretty happy in most areas of life. Some things are tough (like TTC #2), but for the most part I'm happy. I often feel like I can't say if things are good, as people will think I'm bragging. We have some friends who feel the same, and it's great to hang out with them as everyone can say positive stuff without feeling judged by anyone else!

    Sorry, just saw this.

    I'm willing to admit that perhaps I'm oversensitive on this issue lol.
