How many owners has our house had? And why didn\'t any of them update the kitchen ;)

I can remember feeling so alone at that age while thinking "why don't I matter to anyone in this family?" How will I be able to stay mentally strong to find my own path in life. What will MY life be." I believe these are all normal. YOU are normal. I'm not sure I have the words that can convince you that you can get through this. Not only CAN you get through this, you can make the choices you need to thrive in life. You CAN have meaningful relationships with other people. There will be people who genuinely care about you. There will be women role models who come into your life that you can learn from. Please. Know this.

You used the word "betwixt." That's what you get from an English degree.

Although those are all good points, I don't believe all of those apply to my specific situation. In Illinois you can part time home school, so that is what I'm talking about. I can bring him home for 1 subject matter (and yes, that is a hassle I recognize) an then return him for all the social, physical, musical, other subject matters. I'm not going total granola here. Thank you for your thoughts.

That might work except a lot of places were underset corners where I could only get the tip. I needed a 1/4 inch consistant bead mostly. :)

For me, I had to put some space so I could maintain normality for my own family. To be successful in raising my own children, I had to push a lot of that dysfunction aside so I could see clearly and react within a parameter of my own normal state. Everyone has to do what works best for them and their family and this is what has worked for me. Take care.

I think your gut lead you to that and that is good. If someone had asked me why I had gained so much weight so fast (by a true friend,of course) maybe I would have stopped to think and would have been diagnosed sooner.

Sometimes I think people choose for that time in their lives. Not the wrong choice, just a different one than if it was being made in the now. Lives change, needs change. I feel like there may be less guilt associated with it that way. Hugs to you. I know it\'s hard even if it\'s the best of circumstances.

It\'s been an odd emotional ride for me. On one hand I am sad that what I thought were strong marriages, or at least as strong as my own, are now no more but on the other hand see my friends pick up the pieces, start new and grow.
