I’ve been a ‘lurker’ on here for a while now but felt the need to share this.
My DH and me have recently been estranged from our AS for the second time. The first time was almost four years ago and after a few months, we all of us worked really hard to get things back on track and I thought it had worked.
However, it’s seems the problems haven’t gone away in my son’s mind and we are now back to square one. I feel utterly shattered and heartbroken. I’m not sure now that there is any way back for us. I don’t want to go into the reasons for all this because I feel it would be disloyal but the reason for my post is this.
I had been reading through all the other posts in this forum and I came across a book written by another GN. This addresses the whole estrangement situation and it has now become ‘my bible’ The book is called ‘ Beyond All Belief - ALiving Bereavement’ and is written by Diana Dunk. Every chapter resonates what I am feeling but there is also hope there that you can come through this and be a stronger person because of it. There are lots of quotes and little sayings on every other page that are both touchingly and meaningful.
I would just like to recommend this book to anyone who is going through this living nightmare and to say thank you to Diana if she is still on here. I hope your own situation has got better for you.
