    Fight or flight - anyone else feel like you're constantly in it?

    It is exhausting, especially where my kids are concerned, I'm constantly ready to fight off a kidnapper always on the look out.

    Advice needed on communication with my son

    I agree with you and feel there is a misunderstanding. I have changed dramatically in the past 5yrs, and it wasn't for the better, I raised him on my own for 11yrs.

    Advice needed on communication with my son

    He doesn't want counseling and I dont think forcing it at his age will be helpful. I did talk to him a little franker let him know I'm still here and trying, he did agree to stop with the name calling, so that's something, now I guess I'll just back off let him be him. I've known moms who...

    I'm well, was able to advocate for myself with the propane company and after two years of struggling I am now on an affordable payment plan and will have heat consistently this winter. This morning is the first in a while I woke up not thinking suicide.

    Sufferer Recently discovered childhood abuse in my lifetime it's been rough.

    Thanks everyone for the support, it does help to know I'm not really alone. My anxiety makes it hard for me to post for some reason being online doesn't help in this, and I often struggle in knowing what to say or how to reply. Typically I would just avoid something like this.
