I've written this post countless times over the last few days and deleted it an equal amount. I've posted some information, then removed it, which has probably confused some who have caught snatches of it. To sum up,
My son has been bullied at school for a while now, and it has taken a very heavy emotional toll on him. He has a large amount of people surrounding him to help him through this, ranging from family to professionals. Steps are being taken to make things right.
My son is different in many of the same ways that I am, and many of the ways that I think anyone who sits down and writes a blog abut role playing is different. Differences get pointed out in painful ways. It hurts down deep to see my boy have to go through this.
Things are now getting better, but it has been very rough.
I'd like to thank Johnathan Bingham, ze bulette, Telecanter, Mike, Spawn of Endra and Chris Hogan for your support, and I am sorry that your posts were deleted when I deleted the blog entry. I have them in email and I am keeping them, having reread them many times already. They mean a lot.
I'd also like to thank Harald over at The Book of Worlds for a very succinct reality check . The flat of your Viking battle axe upside my temple has cleared my head. Seriously. Thanks.
