Real Life Fundie Encounters: Part 5


Coconut Flan

Recommended Posts

Another thread reminded me to post here.  A few weeks ago we saw dhs fundie lite friends.  They may not be fundie anymore, but at one point they were.  No birth control, gifted all new parents To Train Up a Child and an Above Rubies subscription, homeschooled, did blanket training and the husband was very controlling.  When we saw them a few weeks ago they were pleasant to talk to, we chatted about secular books and tv shows with the teenage daughter and she wasn’t asked once to take care of the younger kids.

What a lovely surprise! How many kids did they end up having or are they still having kids?

Did you notice if the husband still seemed controlling in a patriarchal way or did he seem to have shed that identity?

I think 10.  Im assuming they are done, but probably not by choice more because of age.  The husband seemed less controlling and knew quite a bit about the daughters interests so he does seem to be involved.

My girlfriend and I were out shopping about a month ago and ran into what I can only assume was a fundie/group of fundie lite girls. All had skirts on, one or two had head coverings, and at least one was wearing a very plain dress under her hoodie.

We got pretty annoyed at them. Not because of any sort of interaction, but because the place was packed and they were walking about the same pace as the sloth from Zootopia, and at one point stopped in the middle of the path to take a group selfie.

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      When it's a mix of religion and violent crime, I post the thread in the Quiverfull of True Crime section.

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.
