  • No one other than DH and he isn't a great listener. I have learned to embrace the fact that I do not have anyone to rely on and deal with everything on my own. I have been "crapped on" by so called friends so many times that it is better emotionally to not even attempt to have a close friendship, it is so not worth it , in my opinion anymore.

  • I have me.

    My husband does what he can, but his disability makes it difficult for him to do much.

    His family is useless. Mine is dead.

    I don't know many people in this area and those I do...well, I don't fit in since I'm an older mom with younger kids.
