The Girlfriend is Making My Son Worse...

Monday, March 11, 2013 day was going very well. I got in a little 2.4 mile run this morning. It was great weather and I really enjoyed it. I ran a flat route and my knee and leg felt fine. I am going to increase it to 3 miles tomorrow and see how it does.

I took my son and my assistant to Fogo de chou for dinner in Baltimore. My husband took my sick son to a flyers game. I came home and was relaxing while watching Revenge when my husband texted that he heard my son tell his girlfriend (over the phone) that he wanted her to get her stuff out of his house tomorrow and they were done.

Around 11 tonight my phone rang and it was his girlfriend. I didn't answer it. She left a message that she wanted to know what was going on, no one was answering their phone and she had a flat tire. I called my husband. He said she was nonstop calling and texting both my son and husband. They had to leave the game early because my son was dizzy and not feeling well. He was going to stay at my house but decided to go home because he didn't know if his girlfriend would steal stuff.

Anyway, I texted her and told her he needed rest and would talk to her in the morning. She then started sending all these texts to me about how she wrecked her car, he needs to tell her he is tired himself, and on and on. And even after I told her how sick he feels and my husband is taking care of him she still showed up at his house! At this moment my husband is trying to talk some sense into her. My son should be asleep and, is instead dealing with this.
This is nuts! And none of us needs this right now! My son said she is psycho.

I am trying to get him to go to John Hopkins now. He wants to get a specialist first - but he needs to go in now. He said he is very dizzy again and I am so worried.

Sorry if this didn't make a lot of sense - I am trying to make sense of it myself!

    It is amazing how much people can affect other people, I completely agree that she is making him worse. You just have to be strong and keep her away from him and the more he pushes her away the more power he will feel and maybe get him to take better care of himself. He needs all the strength he can get and so do you guys. I am glad your husband was with him at least he had the extra person to help him. He is a lucky kid to have both of you and I know it will work out. Sometimes faith is all you have to rely on. Your amazing!! emoticon

    It sounds like your son is making the right steps. Now if the girlfriend willl just leave you all alone you could make some real progress, You are all still in my thoughts and prayers. God bless!

    Sorry to hear all that is going on. It is hard on a family when they are dealing with an ailment and others who are suppose to be supportive and close just don't care. I hope that your son gets the help needs and that girl can get her stuff without causing too much chaos around your son. He sounds like he really needs rest. Take care..hugs.

    Ohhh. I'm sorry I didn't read this one first. I hope that by now there is some more good news from Johns Hopkins!!! (((HUGS)))

    It's probably good that the unsupportive girlfriend is on her way out, but he might need some help drawing a firm line. Changing locks, etc. My heart aches for him and for your family today.

    I completely understand. It's not fun when one party is done and the other is not, it brings out desperation in a weird way, and causes some to do seemingly psycho things. I'm so glad that's he's allowing himself to lean on you guys. You provide such a stable post for him, and that's an amazing attribute as parents to contribute to adult children (I recognise it, as I have it as well). Great parenting, and great stress-relief! yay to the run!... but you ran this morning and you're not exhausted from the Daylight Savings? my 6am was significantly harder this morning than usual. I hope you have a fantastic day today!

    I feel for you! Hang in there! It's so awesome that he has you guys to be there for him and he's letting you. Stick together and it will work out!

    It wouldn't make much sense except for the fact that our 24 yr. old son has had his share of "Psycho girlfriends" and they do like to TEXT! One girl texted him over 70 times in one day! He needs to lose her and quick.
