I'm sorry your fish died Night. Fin rot is nigh on impossible to cure even with the medicine you bought him. Make sure you have Crab Apple in....it keeps for ever, doesn't spoil. It DOES work. It's also very good for things like cold and flu's and basically a detoxifier.

Here in the UK many moons ago our Elm trees were hit by Dutch Elm disease. Our famous Kew Gardens tree got it. The tree specialists there made up watering cans every day with Crab Apple drops in it. It was the only Elm tree to survive in the country. A tiny bottle, but powerful stuff.
Look up Dr Bach flower remedies....you might have heard of Rescue Remedy.

PS I forgot to mention, if it was fin rot, you need to clean and sterilize the tank and re-fill with fresh water, otherwise your other fish might get it too. Nasty stuff fin rot.

TRUE.............................thinking of you matey..........( )

Well... Its 10:43 in the morning now, and I am at work. I did get a reply to my email response, and the news is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

Basically my son has Aspergers, ADHD, ODD, and some nervous ticks. The questions the mother wanted to ask were, did I have any history of those conditions in my family, and given that the child is now ten years old, and given that the mother is beginning to explain to my son about my existence, how would I feel if his curiosity lead him to want to meet.

Well first of all, I am relieved that my son is not in any immediate danger of loosing his life, which was my initial concern given the tone of the mothers first communication with me.

As for meeting my son, you have to understand that I had believed, with some pretty clear cut and good reasons, that I would never be allowed to see my son, that his mothers family would be militant against any suggestion of my doing so. I can only assume that they are out of the picture, that my sons mother has somehow escaped out from under that particular cloud, and shaken off her own programming to a degree, otherwise I would never have been asked the question.

Of course, this could all be some nefarious plot to finally kill me, which would have been the fair thing to do back in the day when this all started really.

But as far as being given the chance to see my son? I am at once overjoyed and mortified by it. Overjoyed because I never thought I would get to meet him, and mortified because I have already missed so much of his life.

Good news on your son. A part of me says that he doesn't have all what you listed and is just being a normal 10 year old boy. But what do I know, I'm not a doctor. I do know that if I were a kid today acting like I did when I was young I would probably be medicated to the eyebrows. I was quite the wild child and always getting into trouble.

With luck you can be part of your kids life again. Take it slow and easy, be patient and everything should be OK. You and your ex have grown since you've last seen each other and matured. Good Luck!

But on that note: be careful as well that you are not being set up for something nefarious. Not paranoid, just cautious.

That can be annoying can't it? Breathe deep bud. One day at a time.

I have sent an email to answer the mothers questions, and outlined my feelings toward the possibility of meeting my son, if he should ask for that to happen, and as you say, for now, I must just breathe deeply.

Hi True,

I'm very happy to hear of this turn of events, considering where it could have gone and didn't. Blessings to you and your son, and to his mother.

I was adopted and met my birth father when I was in my twenties. We have a very good relationship, even though we are very different people. Kids, no matter their age, want to be accepted, loved and cherished for exactly who they are, with all the problems they have and messes they make, and especially if they have extra challenges. His mother may have come to the point where she needs your help with him, as a side thought... Anyway, I'm in your corner!

I know you are nervous about meeting your boy, but believe me, it will work out. What's his name?
Just be your charming self and he will love you and cherish you as his Father in time to come. I am very happy for you and excited as well. Now I'm sure he will have his moments as all boys do, especially ones with your son's diagnosis, but take it in stride. My niece has a friend with two boys who have the same or similar diagnosis. They can be awesome, sweet and fun at times and other times you'll want to pull your hair out. LOL But in general, they are great kids, they really are.

Do keep us posted in this new chapter of your life. HUGS!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and advising me on my fish.

I now have a few fancy guppies and an adorable and comical tiny African aquatic frog as new additions to my household. On Tuesday I will try to get a 5 gallon glass tank starter kit with a filter at the Pet Smart store nearby.

True

I hope you know me well enough to trust that I speak from the heart.

When I met my kids again I felt the same, should the opportunity arise to meet your son, and I truly hope it does, embrace it with your very being, I have no doubt you would but just wanted to say so.

If it helps ? Baby steps my brother.................You don't know what he's been told about you so assume the worst, but we KNOW you're a good hearted, solid, honest modern day knight in shining armour, and that my friend will shine through.

Read the line in my avatar under cody599 and stick to it, I can't imagine you any other way.

My very best hopes for your possible future my friend.

Cody

True. I can see how this new developement would cause trepidation, and maybe some palpitation for You! I can offer some simple advice here. You cannot do anything about the missing years of Your Son while He was growing up. But I think if He asks about it, tell Him the truth. You wanted to be there for Him, but could not, as circumstances did not allow for that.
But let Him know that for now on, You will be there in whatever fashion will allow for. There is the internet for messaging, a telephone for more personal conversations. Being there in person would be best obviously, but that can only happen if his Mother will let You be there whenever it is good for Her, to decide on the dates and times for meetings.
Maybe now She will hopefully let You have some personal contact in Person on many occasions!

I Truly Hope for that to happen for You My Friend!!!!!!
