In six weeks my odd adhd difficult child leaves home to start (and hopefully complete) one year of community college. Am I wrong to be happy inside and looking foward to this? Should I plan a big celebration???? I am so tired of the temper tantrums, obstinate attitude and general stupidity, and I know that because of her short comings that being at home is the best for her. Am I selfish to think of myself? Thankfully I have a much easier time than many of you others on this site - she does not steal, she does not do drugs, many of you have such larger burdens. It came to me yesterday that if anyone else treated me the way she does there just would not be a relationship, so why do I put up with it and why do I feel so guilty about wanting it to end? Hope you all can find some small joy and happiness today.
