<span style='font-family: Arial Black'> </span> Well, it's been interesting since difficult child and I started e-mailing each other. At first he was very friendly and happy to hear from me, wanted to "reestablish a relationship" with me, missed me, yadda yadda yadda. Now I barely hear from him and when I do it's usually a sentence or two, one of them was one word. I'm not sure what he expected from me as far as a relationship. He had let me know he was still using, at least alcohol that I know of, and still making bad choices. I didn't really respond to that, he's an adult and I'm trying to keep this on a level I can handle. Sometimes I honestly don't know what to say to him. I'v been keeping my e-mails pretty general, asking about his job, what he enjoys doing, etc. Is he expecting me to get into the old stuff? Even though I should be used to this I'm just really confused right now. I don't want to get sucked back into the old way of trying to figure him out, that's pointless and painful. I'm happy to be hearing from him at any rate.
