It's a hard thing to live with for sure... you just do what you must and try and get through. My sons psyc dr tried to talk me into meds, couldn't understand my issue with it. Unless you've been there you don't have a clue, regardless of hte number of books you read and ppl you meet you just need a moment to walk the wire to know the fear of it all.
