I appreciate all of the care and concern. I'll be alright -- I've been to counseling before many moon ago and was on medications once, so I know the drill. I think I am just fed up, but will seek someone out to talk to because of the issues with my difficult child (I hate that term, by the way!!) and the emancipation issue. I saw another lawyer today; but I can't afford his fee ($225/hr). He suggested I get letters from any place my son has gone for intake review that he is NOT self-sufficient and should not be emancipated, so I will start there. I may just let the emancipation happen because I can't afford a lawyer and if I represent myself, I don't know what I'm doing. I'm ticked off because I called the NAMI representative that my husband and I have been seeing and she WILL NOT write a statement that my husband and I have been seeing her regarding issues with my son. Then why should I continue to go there? *UGH* In any case, thanks again for everything.
