This is the hall of mirrors. Where you will face yourself. Buckle up.
I have a dear SI friend that needs encouragement and support. She is stalked thus the reason I'm posting.
My friend has been mother and father to her children for several years. Her ex-douche didn't want anything to do with them. He's blown off visitation for the past 3-4 years. Now, he's magically re-appeared and wants to play Disney Dad. He gets the kids for the next couple weeks.
The kids have never been away from my friend, let alone that length of time. Ex-douche is super excited to play "family" and show off his awesome parenting skills of "abandon till convenient for me" to his new fling.
If you have any ways for my friend to cope and handle the next little while, please post as she will read them.
Thank you so much in advance for any help.
