I wanted to thank all you ladies who responded. It's NOT easy for me to type this but I realize that my attitude towards ss 21 has been wrong-if he truly is mentally ill, and I'm not at ALL qualified to determine that, then I've been looking at his actions through the wrong lens.
If on the other hand I was right and he's being manipulative, me working myself up and being an asshole makes me worse.
Thank you for helping me see, ladies.

Turning your attention to your own children and dh would be a start. Just try to tune ss out as best you can. The bitter thoughts are robbing you of your joy. It's not worth that. Your bitterness can confuse your children. They can feel tension and think it has to do with them. Just let it go a little at a time.
