Okay, I am so sad. I have a wonderful 21 year old son who is starting law school and has an amazing girlfriend. He has always been great. He has now got an apartment near his school so he doesn't have to travel far. He has been coming home for an internship and brings his laundry, etc. I don't mind at all. Well, myself and his dad asked him for a key to his apartment just in case of an emergency. He knows us and knows we wouldn't just show up but he refuses. It really has hurt us both. I feel like he has now taken us for granted and I need it to stop. This morning I told him that he no longer should bring his laundry home and that he should go to a laundromat and that I wasn't going to keep doing things for him since he has been showing signs of disrespect lately. He walks with a walker and drives a car. He is a brain cancer survivor of 8 years and I have been overprotective as anyone would. Now I am feeling like an awful mother but my husband feels I did the right think. We have been by his side always and now I just feel so disrespected. Am I doing the right thing? I love him so much....
