NOT awful- I live my life this way. I am a widow and am raising a 15 year old son who not only has ADHD but Reactive Attachment Disorder due to the abuse and neglect that occurred prior to his adoption. As a former tag team player and going it alone now the only way to get through some days is to remove myself emotionally. I was at the end of my rope Friday night. I don’t know why it took me so many years to not just read posts but engage. Oh wait! Yes I DO! It’s because you hit the nail on the head and made ME feel like I am not the only one. Thank you for your bravery.
