Support Group Circle are a few of the lessons I learned this week:

Support groups have MUCH value.
Faces are important.  So much is said in the eyes.
I don't have it as bad as some.
Those who have it really bad...need support and understanding.
Those who don't have it as bad.... need support and understanding.
There but for the grace of God go I.
Unholy judgement has no place in a RAD support circle.
There but for the grace of God go I.
The problem is large...bigger and broader...very large.
In systems suck.

In general....advice from books least in the long run.
(this and that/tidbits here and there might work...switch it up when advice is obviously getting you and your kid/family other not get your mind stuck in one theory/method.)

In general.....expect backlash.
In general....expect judgement.
Acknowledgement is necessary.
Shame is destructive.
There but for the grace of God go I.
Find one or two trustworthy intimates and ask for/accept help.
Attend as many support groups as possible.
You are not alone.
Your advancements encourage share them.
We all have failures.
Never give up.
For those who general....they have VERY good reasons and DO NOT judge them.
