I know it isn't smart to imagine(plan on) smooth sailing and perfection when anticipating reintegration. But even when things seemed on the right track, what happens when things go downward rather quickly?
Where there was once good nature and even temper, what do you do when faced with threats and ultimatums? Absolutely not threats of physical violence, let that be clearly stated. But how do you respond when the patience and understanding you remember has been replaced by a much shorter and volatile fuse you don't know how to respond to?
In advance of the upcoming appointments, I was hoping for some comments about anyone else who might find themselves having faced similar issues. Or might just have something to make the whole thing gain a helpful perspective.
