Sometimes, when you're brave enough to open up about some family problems you get feedback that doesn't fix what you're dealing with but makes you realize that you aren't alone. That feedback, I believe, gives more support sometimes than a counselor can. You can talk to people who have in the past or are in the present, very literally walking in your shoes and they all "get it".
So true and thank you for posting this. I came home from work today and I told my daughter that I posted this thread when I was taking a break from sorting through the piles at my parents house last night and all I wrote was “I’m overwhelmed” ... By this afternoon I felt better knowing I’m not alone in this situation.
