    One would think that if you had a jury trial scheduled and were facing up to seven years in the pen that you'd try really hard to be on time. Especially if the judge was already irritated with you for jerking around the court a couple times before.

    But noooooo.

    I commend parents, especially ones raising a child with isssues (autism and the like)

    I'm a pretty detached guy, and coming from an abusive household, I am so petrified of the cycle repeating that I'm better off just spoiling my nieces and nephews

    Pretty similar situation here, but the wife wants babies. It's pretty hard with the abuse stuff, because your survival instinct makes you want to kill everything when your sleep deprivation turns you into a psychopath. But then you take a breath and remember that it's not the child's fault, and there's nothing you can do, so you just try to comfort him. And as long as you're aware of what you are thinking & feeling, you can modify your behavior.

    Yeah, five years of therapy has really helped.

    I think I went the opposite way of that...Im just emotionally numb, I don't really care about anything too much for fear of losing it...the times I have had serious relationships, they haven't ended well, except for one a couple years ago and I just have no desire to start a family when I know I can't give them better than what I had growing up

    The best thing I ever realized was that I am entirely too selfish to ever procreate.

    Yeah. I don't even do that. I'll dog sit for anyone, though.
