Emotionally Exhausted

Being a parent is so rewarding, so heartbreaking, so joyous, so painful, and requires so much of your energy and focus.  Just about every parent has had one or two or many of those times when you've had to stand up for your child.  Stand up for what is right.  I have been going through one of those times for the past few months.  The intensity of the experience ebbs and flows, and over the past week it has been overwhelming.  I am emotionally exhausted.  We've made some progress.  I guess that's all you can ask for.  I need a hug.
