I want to say thank you for all the support from everyone. I really do appreciate it. It's really nice to know to that I'm not alone in this & I have others to talk to. I mean I do have John, but it's really not fair to always have to unload on him all the time.
I have 2 children - my son is 25 & my daughter is 22. She really has been great & has done quite well with her life. Sometimes I think she has a old soul in her young body for she is quite intelligent beyond her young years. Now my son does have a big heart, but he has made some foolish mistakes in his life. By those mistakes, he sets my heart on a roller coaster ride. This makes life hard for all of our family. As for now he's sober and does attend meetings daily with his sponsor. I am proud of this but what upset me is sometimes he has relapsed & won't admit it-probably due to the embarrassment of the slip up.
Please just pray for my family as we deal with this issue as there are so many families that are dealing with this. It does get to be so tiring & you want to just give up but you know you can't because this is your flesh & blood. Your child. I can't give up on him because he is my son and this is why it's so difficult for me to even talk about because it's been going on since he was about 12. He was in a rehab in July 2011 & so things were great for 1 year but after that yr-he did relapse. So the roller coaster had started.
Please just keep us in your prayers-thank you 8)
