I am already exhausted and weary and I found out today that my 13-year old nephew lit a fire on his schoolbus yesterday afternoon. He was taken into police custody today. We are very close and the thing that makes it so bad is that his parents (my brother and sister-in-law) are crazy, which is why he is acting out. He cannot deal with them. I cannot blame him; I cannot deal with them either. I feel badly. I don't know how to help. They are very secretive; I don't know when he will be released and I don't think they will be forthcoming about what is going to happen to him next. This past summer he spent every free weekend he had at my house to get a break from his oppressive household. I did my best to entertain him with my disease. It was a struggle and my housekeeping is still suffering as a result. And the whole thing only reinforces how alone I am in my own troubles.
