    I would love to participate in any upcoming events that you may have Sherri.
    Your books had helped me put a name to what I had experienced from my son and daughter in their teens. I has no idea this craziness is so wide spread.
    I am on the upswing now, just like your little ficus when you got rid of the root netting!

    I am 5 months into my second sons estrangement! I will definitely suggest Reading Sheri’s books and after using the workbook, do what I’m doing reread them. They are better the first time but MUCH better the second time!
    I am interested in upcoming events and articles and anything I can do to help all of us who are estranged!
    I would also like to discuss my estrangements.

      I would very much like to participate in upcoming events. I’m reading Sherri’s book now and working slowly through the questions and exercises. It’s helping already and I’ve just begun. It’s hard to find others to talk to about my partial estrangement from my 40 year old only child. This website is a lifeline for me, as it eases the isolation that accompanies the problem.

    I struggle with harsh words and expletives from my two sons although my daughter has changed somewhat. She experienced the same problems as I do. My oldest son told me he never liked me 5 months ago. He’s been in and mostly out of my life for 27 years. The youngest son , I believe, was born without a conscience. Very much like his father who I divorced when he was 16 and my oldest son 23. They never saw us argue often although my husband had flings early in our marriage and finally found his true love . She was in the marriage for 14+ years and one day I got up and could not live a lie one day longer. He said he would leave me when the youngest turned 18… no child support! My entire family turned on ME. As long as I was available to help them through a divorce, take care of grandchildren and work to pay college tuition when scholarships passed over, I was just ok. Their father zoomed through this horrific activity with no consequences and even bringing new woman around them within a month. Don’t ask why I stayed. I had hope given to me like bread crumbs.
    I was told by oldest son with great vulgarity…women don’t leave…you needed to wait for Dad to leave. That’s about the story from my view. It has affected my health and well-being. Yes, I remarried and it took me thousands of miles away but the ruthless behavior never ceases. It’s a tragedy. I can’t fix anything. Today I say “sink or swim. Not my problem. I’m tired, 77 years old, and cannot, will not tolerate. I know I’m right and I will love them from a distance. Liberating and sad. Never planned for ugly behaviors. I wear a scar that says you destroyed a family by leaving. Agree! II never shared bad deeds from their father. It was right for me and wrong from their viewpoint. I live a good life but it feels empty. I need this group badly.

      Dearest Donna, we’re here for you…and for each other…Keep reading & working Beautiful Sheri’s book, “Done With Crying.” Thank You for sharing your experiences…It’s healing for all of us…May You and Each One Be Blessed In Body, Mind, & Spirit…
      p.s. Your saying “sink or swim, not my problem” reminds me of a funny cat photo where a sitting cat has his eyes closed and has both paws across his chest with the caption “THE PATH TO INNER PEACE BEGINS WITH THREE LITTLE WORDS, “NOT MY PROBLEM.”
