For those who left steplife
Are you happier now? Please tell me how it was/how you felt and feel leaving. Was it the right decision? Asking because I'm close to moving out. My sk has severe autism in which she needs care with daily living, is aggressive and kicks and screams all day (part of her asd). She wakes the home at 5 and 6 a.m. due to sleep problems. She is 11.and we have her half the time. Her mom is hugh conflict and SO always fights with her. The stress of living in this home with the kid even half the time has done me in. Unlike most stepkids, she will never leave home since she cant function without a caregiver who needs to keep eyes on her at all time. And my SO says he will never lut her in a home thiugh I feel she will need ur when he cant deal anynore. Every day is a battle. We cant have liquid soap or shampoo out, candles burning, she pours then out. I dont drive in the car w her because she almost kicked my windows out. She wont get better like my SO thinks and with each passing year, her behaviors are more pronounced. She has no sense of danger, eloped, and requires so much care we have a 1 yr old together and I'm terrified she will do something to harm him and my SO thinks shes totally fine and wont. We cant leave them alone together. I'm so done. Tell me it will be ok.
