...Always feel compelled to help difficult child grow up? ...Want to open the door of communication even though I'll just get slimed by him? ...miss him so? ...want the best for him even though he could care less? ...keep remembering that little glimmer I would get of what difficult child could really be like if he could get his GFGness under control? It's been a month since difficult child last called to dump on us. The only communication any of us have had, was a call to his sister a couple of days ago...saying how he will NEVER have anything to do with us (husband & I) again. It's sad, it hurts and yet, I still want to reach out to him. Don't worry, I won't. It's just frustrating that this feeling never goes away.
