I have a son who will be 12 in about 3 weeks. My ex took custody of him and my son who will 17 in about a week by trickery and deceit. I am trying very hard not hate them by praying for them when I get angry. The problem is, I asked my son to not call me for awhile that I would call him when I was able to handle it all. I know he is young and that he needs his mother but sometimes I am overwhelmed and all I can do is to cry. My ex ignored this and made him call me anyway. Now the crazy thing is, he has let the 17 come down here on an "extendid visitation" to attend highschool here, although he tells my 12 year old that it would be "immoral" to send him down here becasue I am a bad mother.
I had never been seperated from either boy more that two weeks up until the time he took them when they were 10 and 15. Ok this is getting too long, but I have a 18 month old, and 7 year old, plus my grandkids to take care of and sometimes when I hear his voice, I can't barely cope with the fact he's not here and I "lose" it. I try not to, but I cry for hours. This isn't good for them or my mental health. Do you think that it's wrong for me to ask my son to wait to talk to me until I can "handle" it. I sometimes start crying when I'm talking to him and he starts crying. It's a mess. We are moving closer but we can't until we have the money which will take us about a year and a half to save?
