Hugs. I've been there. I think your experience its part of the reason we've dropped out of HS groups for the most part. J is to an age where he is able to take 'classes' and programs and the need for a homeschool group has died a slow painful death.

I'm going to be honest, even 'gifted' teachers don't get it. Psychologists don't get it. Unless you are forced to deal with a child who is that 1%,(or 1/10%) you can not understand what 'life' is like.

We all know there is a huge difference between HG and PG, but explaining that to the average person is darn near impossible. *but if I explain its similar to putting kids with an IQ of 75 and 45 in the same room THEN they get it.

Nothing is smooth sailing but I hope your day and week gets better. HUGS!!
