Everyone is different. Some people get better as they develop coping strategies. Some get worse as they become neurologically depleted. I am of the group that has gotten much worse.

Sorry guys, don't understand what happened with the format on that last post. I tried twice. Here is just my response. Not contacting them is not synonymous with giving up on him nor does it have to be. The bond you made is real and even if you never see him or speak to him again, the energy between...

I'm sorry you're going through all of this and I agree what most others have said. However, I'd like you to think of the mother's situation from a different perspective. To do that I need to explain a little of my last few years. I moved home abruptly when my mom became deathly ill. We spent about ...
