Sick kids and my own private terrorist
« on: February 20, 2021, 09:45:52 PM »

Hi guys. I visit every so often and like to read how you all are. Stay strong

Iíve moved gradually through the different message boards from intro to choosing to be with the PD to separating to celebrating and working on me and now Iím in the coparenting phase


So Iím typing as Iím sitting in hospital with a sick child

This situation sums up my coparenting experience

Ex does have a cold so letís give him that. Our child is sick and I need to take to the doc. I ask if I can drop off the adhd impacted child as Iím unsure wait time.

This would mean the youngest plays on PS4 so I can deal with older.

ĎNo Iím sickí the end.

So we go doc who wonít let us in due to covid symptoms. So we have to go hospital.

I said we better tell dad. Son worried to tell dad in case he makes him mad

Iím worried to tell his dad as I know he will blame me that heís so sick

Presumptuous? Well past behaviour predicts future behaviour

And it has been a 12 year study of this person and 3.5 years free yay however with kids they never really let you be free

The trick is to have strong boundaries

Very challenging but I thank god every day for my freedom

So frustrating! I hope your child feels better very soon.

I hope things go well if you do decide to tell dad. Those situations are always tricky. If he finds out you didnít tell him he may get upset and if you tell him he may blame you for something. I am sorry you are going through this. I hope your child gets well soon.
