I have a friend who is gay (married) and one of her children has "issues". Honestly I dont know what his special needs would be called, you wouldnt know to look at him or talk to him but he has some learning difficulties and some processing issues.
She is a WONDERFUL person, and a WONDERFUL mother... but lately Im starting to avoid her.
She has had to deal with discrimination for YEARS being a gay woman, being married to a woman, being a gay mother, and for the past 5 yrs has gone head to head with the schools, drs, insurance companies, and the like fighting to get the help her son needs.
All this has made her VERY sensitive... and more and more she is too quick to react... and reads WAY TOO much into simple little comments and incidents. Im finding our conversations more like her venting over every little thing that is said to her, a look, a reaction. I think it has gotten to the point that she has a skewed view of reality... reacting first as if the world is against her.
Do I point it out? How would you point it out?
