Your concerns are not insane, because their true concerns regarding your son and grandchildren. I am the grandmother of fraternal twin boys. There parents got a divorce when they only 3 years old. I maintained a long distance relationship with my grandsons. My daughter-in-law was very angry with my son and really did not want any thing to do with me. I kept praying and pressing on. I wanted to have a relationship with grandsons, just as I had with my grandmother as a child. It is important to support our children and grandchildren. Yes this is a very difficult time for everyone. I pray you are able to make it with turning to comfort foods. In our case the families are very different also.
My daughter-in-law would communicate with me no matter how angry she became with my son or me. I even made a couple trips to see them by myself. The boys lived in another state and started coming for the summer when they were 5 years old. They have gotten to know my family and friends. It has such a blessing having them in my life.
I pray that something I have shared will encourage you.
