Seriously disgusted…

with J’s behavior and lack of motivation. I was thinking of packing him a suitcase when he leaves the house and not letting him back in. I am not sure it would work. He would literally just live in the driveway. Maybe that would be motivating in itself…goodness knows that we have not given the neighbors much to talk about in awhile.

Anniversary was very nice…Flowers & Dinner!

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free with her oldest son when he went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    So glad that you had a good anniversary. : ) As far as J goes,…I do know what it’s like,..but like what others have said,…if nothing changes, nothing changes. That’s for sure. I would type up some type of specifics he has to meet with a deadline, and if he doesn’t meet it, what you’ll do then, as well. You really never know….he just may rise to the occasion. My husband has always said that motivation is the key, and I think he’s right….even for an addict. I’m just hoping that J can “get into NA”, with a sponsor, etc.,…it can be literally miraculous. One thing that’s SO true…he really can’t “do recovery” on his own,…that just doesn’t work. His behavior is an example of that. Also, do you think he may be depressed ? I know from going through that personally, being motivated to do anything or have a positive spirit or any initiative is almost impossible if actually clinically depressed. And, drug use does mess with your brain chemicals to the extent that depression often results. If so, maybe getting him onto an anti depressant would be a huge help,…to start him feeling some initiative or hopeful and motivated. Is he currently seeing any therapist or psychiatrist ? Just some thoughts from what you’ve written. I’m praying for both of you daily.

    a bit of a joke…..
    “have you thought of moving with no forwarding address?” Just a chuckle but at times this seemed the best option when i was where you are..

    Happy Anniversary, I’m glad to hear it was nice. Its so painful to see what drugs have turned our sweet little children into. I don’t have any suggestions but do agree that he needs to be out of there for the sake of the rest of the family. Having Keven gone from our home for a year now has been heavenly. Of course I still worry about him, and he’s not on the street so I don’t have that worry. Its not fair to us, but life ain’t too fair 😦 Thinking of you.
