Hello team and Happy New Yeat to all!!!
Sally, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Don't beat up on your self, you are trying to help your mother get out of this difficult situation. It is so sad that sooooo many people are ruining their lives on illegal and legal drugs. If not only affect the addict's life but in spill over to family members too. I pray that your mother will soon realize that she can not help her son unless he is willing to accept help and it should be done by a professional. Just pray for strength and look after your mom as much as she will allow you to.
We are here for you.
Eldora

Thanks Kelly, I'm so sorry it happened in your family too. It's so unfair that one family member can cause so much stress to so many.

Being from a similar situation except it was my Uncle that did that to my Grampa, my mom and her sister, who ended up moving away too. It was soo hard to watch my mom go thru all the battle's and my favorite Aunt move away and my gramps keep bailing him out when it was my mom and my aunt that took care of gramps. My heart goes out to you. It was very stressful for my whole family for many years. Keep your chin up and just keep doing your best and good luck. Kelly

Thanks so much you guys!

I have to stop letting other people derail my weight loss goals. I'm pretty upset with myself and plan on being extremely active on this team.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I'd like to start by saying how sorry I am that I abandoned everyone right at Holiday time when everyone needs an extra push.

My brother is a drug addicted loser (48 years old). He's pretty much always been and has taken advantage of my sister and me for as long as I can remember. Well, now he's gone after my mother, who we found out mid-December, has over the previous few months given him her entire retirement and if that's not enough, he's now working on getting her kicked out of her apartment because he's moved in with her (it's and older communtity building and people under 55 aren't allowed to live there).

We have stressed to her that he's not worth it and that he's just using her but she won't hear any of it. He's always been her favorite and we can't make her see it.

My younger sister and I are trying to be patient and help her but we're getting tired of it. There is much more drama... he took her car and got it impounded and now she needs us to get around, he's done some pretty crappy things to my 2 sons (one of the things is he unfriended them on facebook because I won't give him any more money). My older sister has left the state to get away from the situation so one of my very best friends is gone. etc. etc.

I'm just trying to let you know how sorry I am I haven't been here and that's pretty much my reason.
