I haven’t been alone in years. Now that my oldest son has a job I will be alone all day,5 days a week. I’m feeling what I felt when I was in school & what I felt when I took my 2 sons to school & picked them up from there. Yes,feeling what I felt when I had to go to court,some odd years ago. I’m feeling what I felt when child services was bullying my sons & me. All those feelings have awakened. Its like standing nude outside my comfort zone. I’ve no choice but to face my fears & go through the darkness. I can’t expect to always have someone to hold my hand. I am now on my own,alone,in the dark. As terrified as I am,I am proud of my son. He’s working hard on his life & future.
