Today when I got home from work I realized I had not talked to my son all day and he of course was not home. I called him on his cell phone and it went straight to voicemail. I assumed that he had turned his phone off but prayed maybe it was just dead. You see when things are not good he will disappear and not respond to a text or calls. He doesn’t like to lie to me but will if he feels he has no other choice and getting caught is not something he would choose. I assumed the worse when he did not respond to my repeated attempts to get a hold of him. I actually thought I might have been having a heart attack, my heart was pounding, I was sweaty and nauseous all at the same time. I was only home with my six-year-old who kept asking If I was going to be ok? I tried pretending everything was fine but my poor little one wasn’t buying it. He finally decided to pretend too…it was sad. After about two hours my son responded, he said everything was fine he had turned off his phone when he went to his meeting this afternoon and then had left it there. He went back to get his phone and saw my 3000 messages and took pity on me and called me back. You would think when he heard the complete panic in my voice, maybe he would have been apologetic but he was just angry. He says I am driving him crazy! HIM CRAZY? Welcome to my world!
