I don't use my real name or that of any other individuals I write about. Despite what my daughter and her husband have done to me I have no wish to publicly embarrass them. My granddaughters are little girls. I have no idea what they have been told, probably that I abandoned them. I'm no longer interested in resolving this issue. I tired any and everything I, or anyone in my family thought might possibly help to do so. We were rebuffed at every suggestion.

I'm not sure how much longer I'll be around, my health is somewhat questionable. For whatever time I have left, my daughter will not rule it. I literally no longer care.

I left an almost 40 year unhappy marriage. One daughter cut me out of her life, and that of her children due to my actions. I write about that hurt and more.
