I feel myself starting to check out.
(Context) I'm in ultrasound school, graduating in December. We are at the hard part, prerequisites over. 2 tests a week, studying for hours a day. I'm also studying for my first licensing exam (there are 2 we need in order to work and be "certified ").
my fiancé has a terrible co parenting relationship. Right now, the mother is keeping the children (9 & 6) out of school because 1.) she doesn't have any gas to take them there 2.) they actually are registered to ride the bus from her mothers home but she no longer wants the children in her house so simply riding the bus is not an option apparently 3.) she hasn't "allowed" my fiancé to see the kids in about 2 or 3 weeks now, & will not let up even to get them to school. She has him blocked still . The sister communicated this school issue to my fiancé. At 10 a.m after the kids have already missed school today.
As he's telling me about it, it's not that I don't care, but it's like I'm feeling distant from the situation. I feel like I'm checking out. I'm trying to keep my sanity & not have my world rocked by the ups & downs of their coparenting relationship. But I don't know if I'm going about this the right way. I don't even know what to say to him about it. I have no control over the situation. It's almost like I feel like "yeah ok, so how's the weather. " I have a lot I'm trying to stay grounded & focused on (school like I said above). I also have a toddler
