Hi all. Do any of you struggle with guilt? I have two difficult kids - one my son w the autism like traits and maybe "perseverative" is the word for his obsession w growing marijuana. On his terms. My daughter has autism and extreme social anxiety. Both are high average iq. I feel guilty because during their pregnancies I was frantic about my ex's poor behavior. We fought a lot. He was a good earner, had his own business, was controlling and emotionally abusive, also drank and used cocaine. He was out a lot. Now I wonder why I cared so much about that idiot. I worry that my reaction to his behavior caused my kids to be damaged in utero. On the other hand, my ex's family is a hotbed of mental health problems and dysfunction. I have a sister w autism.
