Now if I could kick the depression, things might be okay. I just still keep hearing about everything I've done wrong all my life, especially with my kids, without anyone having a single suggestion for anything that would actually be any better especially that would work globally in the context of our whole family. If you have a solution for surviving with 2 teenagers with serious mental illness, 1 teenager with developmental disability and behavioral problems, 1 preteen requiring continued monitoring for the life threatening GI disease that manifested the first 10 years of his life, a 5 year old who needs speech therapy, and a 3 year old who periodically the doctors worry about having a liver disease; and then getting all the regular stuff like orthodontist visits and house cleaning done, then pitch in and speak up and I'll be grateful. If you want to tell me everything I have done wrong raising my kids and how our religion and beliefs are the root of all the family's problems (apparently practicing Judaism affected our genetics, according to the thinking I get from some people), or how if we just changed the past would fix everything (good luck with that), or how other people I can't control I need to change (yeah, good luck with that too), or anything else along those lines, you know what you can do with your thoughts much less your comments. I can't cope.
