How many times can a mom get punched in the gut and survive?

This will never end. I know that now. Hope is stupid. I won’t be stupid again. Any parents who come to this blog looking for advice…I am not your answer. If you want to learn one thing about addiction: It never ends, it is the gift that just keeps giving. Don’t invest your heart in hope because believe me when I tell you: There is no hope.

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

    I’ve been doing this for almost 10 years now and I completely understand. I always try not to get my hopes up but deep inside I do. You would think after this long it wouldn’t be such a gut wrenching let down when it all falls apart but it always is. My heart goes out to you and all of other POA’s. I wouldn’t wish this journey on my worst enemy. Cathy H

    I know how you feel. I feel like this most days. I stopped going to Al-anon because the only happy people were the ones whose son/daughter are in recovery. The Mother’s whose child is still out there sick, were miserable like me! I went for almost a year. I’m so tired of addiction!!! We need more help in getting help for our kids! They are too sick to make decisions for themselves! sending my prayers for you and your son. Lisa S.

      Yup that is so true. I certainly don’t hold a parents child recovering against them but it becomes very hard to relate to them and for that I am very sorry. I just don’t want to do this anymore.
