    Lots happening in the past few weeks. I went to visit easy child daughter in Chicago...ended up bringing her home with me. Long story, but she's gained 100 pounds in the last year, and her boyfriend was arrested on domestic violence charges against her. She is in denial on all issues, so thought it was best to bring her home. On the plus side, I'm really enjoying my time with her.

    J seems to be doing well. We'll attempt another trip in a few weeks to see him.

    My medications seem to work for me; no significant side affects. That's a plus. I go see the doctor tomorrow for a follow up.

    I'm so glad the medications seem to be working, Abbey. phew/whew!!! I expect they probably helped stop you from ripping the limbs off easy child's EXbf :grrr: and allowed you to take her home instead.

    Good news about J- fingers crossed that he can maintain. Every day living a good lifestyle is a very big deal.

    oooooh I bet it took everything you had in you not to break off his arms and beat him with the bloody ends. Well, I am in Chicago, so if I see him, I will do it for ya.

    Good thoughts and prayers that things continue to improve. Many good wishes for your easy child; I've been there. She is so fortunate that you arrived when you did.

    Abbey, I'm so glad to hear that you were able to find medications that are helping without the bad side affects. Sorry to hear that easy child is not doing well. It's good that you are doing well enough to help her.

    Hopefully while daughter is staying with you she'll come to see the boyfriend in a different light. I'm glad to hear J is doing well.

    I'm glad she's home safely. Enjoy your time together and hopefully she will stay far away from him.
