^ I can totally understand were Meredith is coming from, I can relate so very well to the mother/daughter relationship they had. Her mother never had a kind word to say - even about her. Just to be called ordinary by your mother once when you want her to recognize you and be proud is enough to contemplate your own being.

It's off for 6 weeks.

I understand Meredith because I think she's a good example that sometimes, you can have the "perfect" life and the "perfect" guy but if you have 101 issues (and she has serious and debilitating abandonment issues), then just the fact you're with a McDreamy won't suddenly and miraculously fix all those other things. A lot of time women think that and it's never true. You have to be happy yourself first.

Six weeks?

I understand Meredith completely. She's not horrible, she's just trying to deal with some mammoth issues and herself at the same time. It's not an easy thing to do.

Absolutely, well said.

I don't think men understand how devastating that can be for a woman when your mother is like that, that hardly makes her a horrible person. It's not just women either, everyone has those parent issues-unless you have perfect parents or you're just in denial.

I can't believe it's off for 6 weeks, what will we do?

Devastating enough to let yourself die? For me, it has to be about moving on in life. Of course we want approval from those that love us, but you're not always going to get it. You HAVE to move on. Therapy can help.

I may have been a bit harsh in saying she is a horrible person, but her act of sucide was a horrible thing to do. It's selfish, and won't solve anything.

^ well she contimplated the thought of suicide. I can say from experience that her problems hit nail on the head for me. And it isn't easy to understand.

I too was abandoned by my biological father, never knew him never saw him. I too am sure I have half siblings like Meredith. When your own parent and the only one who has raised you doesn't think highly of you and makes you feel that with all you have accomplished the size of an ant. You fell hopeless. When you feel completely hopeless you want out. It took years and years of therapy for me to "learn to live with my mother and her serpent like mouth" plus an eating disorder thrown in there for good measure.

It wasn't until last night that I finally understood my husbands perspective of my relationship when they showed Derek yelling at Merediths mother. It wasn't easy for him either.

sorry to but I think it is important that people realize how this charachter ended up the way she was and how she will move on. When she looked at Derek and said she knew her mother was dead. It was a relief for her.

Glad you went to therapy. I've been there too (and still go), and I really think more people should. Too bad most people think that by going to a therapist there must be something really wrong with you. Not really. To me it's such a relief to just talk to someone who can listen, and give professional advice.

Anyway, I still think the show is lame : )

I have a neighbor who knows someone that works on the series.

she said Derek and Mer are going to have a huge fight.

and that Burke will console Mer and they will have a fling.

Burke and Mer? EW. That is all.

Looks like they're bringing the show back earlier than April! Next ep is March 15.
