Is it Possible?
Any steppers out there who have managed to rarely, maybe once every six months or so, see their skids? Or who may see them every month, but for no longer than a couple of hours?
I’m a mess of anxiety tonight because I have to be around SD13 for the third weekend in a row this weekend. I feel so uncomfortable around her. I am considering being “away” til she leaves. I also wonder if I should just ignore my anxiety and do what i always do when she is here...Just be myself. Normally her visits are EOW and I have acclimated quite well to the rhythm of that visit schedule.
My DH’s oldest son and him visit weekly, but I never see SS18. It is wonderful. I will try to not be close enough to speak to SS18 for the rest of my life. Christmases, special events, funerals. There will be no need for me to interact with him during any of these times. So I will simply stay happily away.
What is really getting to me is that i feel like i can ot be myself around her. Three weekends in a row of not feeling like you can “be yourself” in your own home, well, it sucks!!!
