I consider myself a very strong and stable person. I have been through a lot in my life and have always had broad shoulders and weathered the stomas life has brought me. Dealing with my Difficult Child AS has triggered severe depression and PTSD in me. I am trying to focus on keeping me well and staying out of the Rabbit Hole but man this is tough, tough, tough. Is it because we are dealing with our children and living their pain vicariously through our own hearts? Battle Weary is right. This is tough stuff.
