but if it isn’t it should be. J has lost his job again and his girlfriend, both of which I am sure he thinks he will get back. He has no money which is when everything gets scary. I hate when I have to be afraid he will steal from me or anyone for that matter. He thinks he has it all under control????…out-patient rehab must not report directly to his probation office because he should have failed just about every test he has taken there. This is all one big game of “catch me if you can” only I am not playing anymore, in fact I haven’t been playing for a long time. His girl friend made him take a drug test which he failed…she left crying and saying she is done and she will miss us. I am strangely calm about this.
Now J is in a real pickle…his out patient rehab is far away and no one wants to take him. Except his girlfriend who would do anything to help him get better…oops but now she is gone too. He is required to attend three times a week…so my suggestion to him was to come clean and tell them/probation that outpatient isn’t working and he wants to go long-term inpatient. I also told him I was okay with him going to jail when he failed his next drug test…either or takes him out of my house. My… how quickly expectations have evaporated.
I am sad for his girlfriend who is new to addiction…she really thought she could love him into sobriety.
