He has not been home, called or texted me for over two weeks now. I know he is not taking his medication. It is hard to feel hopeful right now. I have not even discussed this with my husband. He just pretends everything is the same only I know something has changed. I am not too hopeful about this. I would say relapse is a very real possibility. I do not like going to bed knowing nothing and praying I don’t get a call from a police station or worse. My oldest brother is a perfect example of a “worse case scenario”. As you know, an addict does not understand consequences when he is in the midst of it all. Heck, when an addict is squeaky clean it is not clear to me they understand consequences. I hope he knows he can not come home if things get bad. I will NOT RESCUE HIM this time. I think maybe I will pray that the only thing that will make sense to him is rehab. I don’t know what to do? I am fairly calm, usually bad anxiety sets in about now but I am going to wait because that is all I can do. Right?
