Our expert says:
After the challenging series of events you have been through, NOT to feel confused and to have contradictory and upsetting feelings, is what would be abnormal. Your reactions are uncomfortable but normal. There are no absolute rules about how to handle this, but counselling is something you deserve, which would help you to adjust, and to work through these feelings constructively. I understand that you feel reluctant to talk about it, but DO see the SW and learn to talk to the right people --- it is strong to be able to seek and receive help when one needs it. And you have done absolutely nothing wrong --- talking this through with someone who will be understanding, and keep things confidential, will be reall helpful. If you have family and friends, talk also with those who you can trust. And I am certain that in time, your son will understand that you made a very difficult but very loving choice.
