I have been a stay at home mom of a special needs son. He is now 30. A few months ago my world turned upside down. He fell just short of a plan to kill me in my sleep. I found out he also had an undiagnosed mental illness masked by his other health issues. I had to do the one thing I never thought I would...place him in a home. Now I am starting over again, without him. My heart is broken and I am trying to find myself. My identity was his mom and protector. Feeling a bit lost and very hurt.
