My co worker approached me in tears today. She has taken excellent care of her boyfriend's teenage daughter for the last 4 years. Her mother lives about two hours from our city and hasn't had much to do with her. There was no court ordered custody agreement. My co worker had this girl on her insurance! She paid for her cell phone bill. She drove her everywhere or always let her use her car. She took her to appointments, school, you name it. She did A LOT. She is a doctor and she makes good money, but she still did not have to do all that she has! They had a good relationship.
I feel like everything is an argument between us. Is that normal? Things were never like that with my ex.
I am new here. I am so glad that I found a place where I can get to know others in my shoes.
