Hey Jay, I used to have my son full time, but wanted to move, needed to move so his dad got the lawyers involved. Now i have shared care, 50/50.... which i do believe is fair as my boy needs his dad in his life.

when I was first getting used to not having him around all the time.. it killed me. I felt lost, and desperately wanted to see him all the time. But it gets better,and the times together are just great.

I found other things to fill my evenings, yoga, work a little, friends, a jewellery course.....it is what you hvae to do. Fill your time with rewarding hobbies, and friends from AA.... too much time alone leads down a really dark path. It did for me for a time until i got help........

Sounds like you are being a great Dad, putting your son first and trying to build a good life for the two of you. Keep it up Jay!

see you in chat... with my fave smiley!! I crack myself up!
