    Newest upset

    Hello. My bipolar daughter has been away from home, on and off (she lives with mil) for several months. Not talking much to any of us. When she quit her job she liked several months ago, I knew it meant trouble. A few days ago, she msg'd me wanting all her meds sent since she "lost" her passport. 2 days later, she found it, but still not back home. She called last night, really in the dumps...

Hell fell off the face of the earth and I didn’t hear from him until a few days ago. He wrote me an email all cherry and sweet, wishing me well, and saying sorry about how he has been distant and then thanking me for all the things I have taught him. He said...

I am still very...

    Same sh** different year

    My husband and I have been separated for a very long time, but always have been working towards getting back together, or at least I was. Our 9 yr anniversary was last week, but he had been on a crazy rampage of verbally abusive texts, seemingly out of nowhere, so I didn't even see him. (Yes he uses drugs, yes he is bipolar) Today, he is sending me pics of him and his "angel", another woman. Oh,...
