He texted me to let me know and my stomach sunk but I did not say a word. The job was spring clean-up with a landscaper who is also a very good friend. It turns out J spent the night at the landscaper/friends house. I have known this boy since he was a young child. He is one of the first friends J lost when he started using but he is also one of the first friends back now that J is healthy again(crossing fingers, knocking wood, quick prayer, wearing my lucky socks etc…). So it turns out he did go to work! He asked me to drop off a sweatshirt and his work gloves on my way to work and since it was right on the way I did. The *MOA in me really wanted to see how he looked so we just met at a Dunkin Donuts and I gave him his gloves and sweatshirt. He looked fine! Go figure? He has another job tomorrow working at a holiday party for Hasidic Jews. I think the holiday is Purim but I am not really sure? He will be shuttling guests from a parking lot to the location. I wish it was a full-time job but for now he is working when the work is available and that is so good. He will also be doing more clean up work for his landscaper friend. He looks good and has a wonderful attitude. No more: woe is me, I have nothing to live for, everyone hates me blah blah blah BS. He is showing us things are different which is much different from the past. J would just keep telling us he was different and that things were going to change but the behaviors stayed the same.
Am I setting myself up for a big fall? I think I am going to have to be admitted for therapy if that is the case.
