I found out today that my mom is going to be released to come home on Jan 25, instead of April 22. I’m really excited to have her home, but I’m afraid that I’m letting myself get overly excited.
My life completely changed when my mom got arrested. and I cant help but to think in the back of my mind that it will all go back to normal when she comes home. But I KNOW that’s not true. Things are forever changed, and just because she’ll be home doesn’t mean that things will go back to normal.
I miss my mom, and I can’t wait for her to be home, but I’m seriously struggling to keep my head wrapped around what it’s really going to be like rather than the fairy tale/ movie ending that I keep imagining.
Things have changed, and I need to stop fighting it, and learn to live with it.
