Annie, it’s stories like yours and Dennett (and others I could tag but won’t) that make me hesitate to complain about my parents (mostly my father) who, on their worst days (prior to dementia onset) were better than the shit y’all had to go through. Y’all are amazing for making it in the world as functional humans, and you have my admiration and respect.
