I detached last year. My difficult child has applied for soc. sec. disability. Last I heard he is supposed to take a language evaluation? His only physical problems are back trouble and he hurt his ankle during a fall. He is trying to say he is too disabled to work. His girlfriend has been supporting him for many years. Last I heard she was down to nearly skin and bones. Probably from stress. She told her mother that "I have made my bed and I have to lie in it." If you read my posts last year, I found that they were drinking and using pot/spice. I saw two movies recently about raising young boys. I felt like my son was calling for me last night. No one in the family has heard from him recently, so I don't know much. Last I knew he was staying home with his fish tank, dog, and cat. His girlfriend is willing to support him and his pets. It is hard to believe. I was just wondering if many of you imagine that your child is calling, "Mama." How do you get your mind off of the pain of it all?
