Oh no, I didn't take it that way at all. I'm grateful that you took the time to reach out. DD had the worst melt down of her entire life last night and I thought she was losing her mind (I know I lost mine some time ago). The last few days have been really impossible so just knowing that I'm not alone and other parents have survived raising children like DD gives me a hope that maybe one day, I'll be able to hold it together.

I think it's time for DD to go to school away from me. I'll miss her and it might backfire but something has to change and maybe she needs more than what I'm giving her at home. Until then, I'm going to try to add more structure to our life.
