Motivating my almost 24 year old to move on his own; while not moving out of my life has been a major stressor for me and would appreciate some help. Mind you, I love my son with all my heart and have always been there for him and my girls. The problem is, my kids are young adults and living with them has not been a picnic. I often wonder if they forgot that I'm their Mom instead of their maid, ATM machine, and someone to scream at when things don't go their way.
While I am getting older and would like to enjoy my post parenthood days before I'm blessed with potential grandchildren and/or the signs of aging lands me in a wheelchair, perhaps muscle aches, or just simply slowing down.
All of my kids and I suffer from ADHD. Mine is undercontrol with the medical help I have, however, my kids refuse this help nor can I force them because of their age. For me, I am stressed out and envy those Moms who have. Can I walk away?
