Taking a break
I didn't just want to up and leave, b/c there are people here that mean something to me. A LOT of something.
The s**t has hit the fan in our lives. With my MIL's cancer..and my SO's sister nutting out to the point of a breakdown, his brother berating anyone within listening distance (he's afraid too)...the incredible demands being placed on both of us right now...
My oldest daughter's shenanigans with another man, and her husband being on the verge of a breakdown..and repeated pleadings for me to intervene daily...
My youngest daughter's mental illness out of control, b/c she went to one therapy session after her rape, and refuses her meds now...she's homeless in a shack (literally) and refuses to come home...
It goes on and on and on....I'm losing my ability to be empathetic..sympathetic...hell, I can't even carry on a decent conversation right now.
This has been my one haven, and I'm risking that as well. So I'm going to take a break. For my offenses, I sincerely apologize.
To those of you who are struggling, keep up the fight! Once I get my own house in order (if that ever happens, and right now I am doubting even that)..I'll be back. I hold sincere affection for many here.
