Ive never read anything of someone being able to relate to my relationship with ny child & feelings until now. I cried through all our your posts. Ive spent 12 years as a single mom dealing with a beyond defiant child completely alone with no breaks or even anyone to help me for an hour. I was known as an optimistic individual by everyone I ever met except my mother, until these last few years. I decided to date & I had a baby. There are other struggles in my life on top of my 12 yr olds behavior that the combination of them all have had me in a deep depression yrs now. I felt aweful feeling the very feelings yall have described with your children. This is the 1st moment in life Ive actually thought maybe Im not alone thanks to yalls shares.
