How do I raise a non-verbal autistic grandchild alone? 41 years of trust has been blown away in seconds. Trust has been shattered. All I have is a heart full of love. I didn't deserve this. I've suffered through my son's and my daughter's addictions. My son in prison. But I thought I would always have his love because "we had something special". If you think the love of your life is different from the rest, think again. Never put them on a pedestal because they are human and not god. I guess what I had to offer him wasn't enough anymore and I can't compete with what he desires. I was a head turner only a few years ago. But all the stress and burdens of the addicts and raising a baby at my age who is autistic has aged me. I'm sure I'm at least 3 inches shorter than I was 5 days ago. His betrayal has been the heaviest burden of all. 41 years wiped away because of a lustful eye. Every sin starts with a single thought. He should have been thinking of me. I am only a shell of a person right now and feel I COULD DIE FROM MY BROKEN HEART.
