My 16 year old went back to his dad's on Monday, and since he left I have not had the added stress of worring 24/7 about where he is, who he is with, and what he is doing, or what his temperment might be (he is diagnosed bi-polar, manic depressive, and scares me with his temper). Don't get me wrong I love him, and srill worry about him, but it is a great stress fqctor in my life that is lifted now that he is gone, and a lot of the pain has gone also. I still have have pain, and a the other symptoms seem to stand out more. But for the time being the pain fqactor is a little more easy to handle. It just seems to go hand in hand with the stress level. Has anyone else discovered this to be true?
