Lee, thank you for taking care of yourself enough to walk away from my story when you needed to...but for also responding here. But I'll tack on a trigger warning at the top just in case.
I knew that this story might be familiar to so many...and so I hesitated sharing it. But I wanted people to know that there are parents who will protect their kids, who understand the harm that is done by ignoring the problem and who will actively support treatment, growth and healing. But it's a rough road for us...and hard to imagine how we will ever feel whole again.
