Actually, I would say that orthodox scientists and medical professionals are generally not the best people to know about life since their training has ensured they use a fairly rigid way of viewing the world. Unfortunately, the world does not fit into this view as can be seen by the many cases which are reported by many all over the world. There are wise people on here just as much as there are 'outside' the forum and you find truth in all walks of life. Excluding one source of truth is denying the possibility that some of the truth we are all seeking exists there. Of course, thats your choice.
A place full of believers of aliens and conspiratists is not the place to seek counseling for this type of family problem. Go and see some people who can actually help you, guide you and who are physical people, not anonymous ATS unknowns.

We have never been the bossy types or pesky or nosey as to our kids lives...we mind our own business and don't nag or lecture or call on phones...we don't like phones much. We don't interfere in their affairs. Yet, we have always helped them with money problems, given emotional support when needed, bought them their first flat screen tvs and given them furniture and tools when we had to down size from big home/property to smaller arrangements because we could no longer up keep because of health issues. They aren't the type that would help with the lawn once in a while or take us to the store or whatnot. We didn't give them things to expect heavy strings attached but just a small amount of help and kindness simply because they are family would have been nice. Yet, zilch.
