Counting On: Season 4, Part 1: Back to Planet Duggarville


Recommended Posts


I'm going to get real here for a second. I was given a dry-eye diagnosis earlier this year, and thank the lord, I am now in complete recovery/remission. No more Xiidra eye drops, no more rewetting drops, no more punctal plugs in my tear ducts, no more blinking exercises, no more hot compresses and lid massages at night. However, I've had to give up my contacts and use my glasses permanently. I don't like putting on makeup anymore because I really don't like having too much stuff around my eyes.

Honestly, after the period of depression I was in because my life was a cycle of constant pain, I'm just happy that now when I get up every morning, I feel normal and happy again. I can get through a day without wanting to die because of my eyes. It got THAT bad. Seriously, I am currently on a short-term anti-depressant because my dry eye specialist believed the neurons in my brain needed to stop sending pain triggers to the nerves in my eyes. Or whatever medical stuff he said to me in his office.

And you know what? Even though I'm in glasses and go makeup-less 90 percent of the time, I'm still pretty damn cute. My husband still finds me unbelievably sexy. Seriously, I was out with him and his best friend a few weeks ago, and they couldn't stop talking about how sexy girls who wore glasses were. Something about a sexy, smart librarian/businesswoman look. A woman who is intelligent and in charge. They weren't even trying to make me feel better, they just kept talking about hot girls in glasses. For a loooooong time.

Now, when I see a woman with an au naturale look, I admire it. She's got the confidence to present herself to the world as she is. And, if you love makeup, that's great. If you don't, that's great, too. You do you.

As for me, sometimes life throws you a curveball, and you learn to adapt and prosper with it.

Wow. They blurred Jessa's knees on the plane.   And then two seconds later another shot of her tending to Spurge and no knees blur.   If you're going to be ridiculous at least be consistent.  

So we just saw Joken get married and now TLC is going to force Joy's wedding down our throats again, who is already pregnant, but instead of her baby, we will see the birth of Samuel, and M5 will just

Perhaps you will appreciate this old joke: A snobbish English teacher was sitting in an Atlanta airport coffee shop waiting for her flight back to Connecticut, when a friendly southern belle sat

Can we not use the word 'Retard?'

This was missed when it was first posted, but thank you for pointing out that the R-word is not allowed here.
From the Guidelines:


No hate speech

Hate speech is not allowed on Free Jinger. While we value free speech, this is a privately owned site and this matter is not up for debate. FJ will NOT be considered a hate site because some people can't control themselves.

Hate speech is defined as speech that offends, threatens, or insults groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other traits.

This means we do NOT tolerate the use of words like nigger, faggot (or fag unless you are from a country that uses that term for cigarettes and are using it in that manner), retard or retarded, gay as an insult (ie: that is so gay), etc.

The fact that I had to make this an actual rule disappoints me greatly. There will be ONE warning given for violation of this rule. If that warning is ignored, the member will be placed on an indefinite Journey To The Heart until they realize they are not the special snowflakes they think they are.


(I know this thread was locked already, but I don't want people reading it later to think this is ok).

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
