Trauma and Tin Foil Dinners

Re-integration of M1

It has been a long couple of days at chez ANYM. I am sometimes ready to kick M1 out again but then realize all she is really doing is showing me how unable she is to care for anyone or anything, so I must be patient. She came home Sunday and the understanding she agreed... Continue Reading →

Continued Drama
