Being a Mom isn't easy

Monday, July 09, 2012

My 38 year old son has been going thru some horrible times. The person he was going to marry someday left taking their 2 boys. To explain what she has done to him over th last 11 years would take a long time to tell. But she ran him into dept big time, he has been spending time at home having no TV no computer nothing. I would be their for him if possible but am unable so we have been talking on the phone every night. Today he called and said he had taken sleeping pills. I ask how many and told him to call the hospital (iI live in another state) and I would call him back to make sure he did. I gave him a little time and when I tried to call him back several times no answer. So I call the police in his area to go and check on him.They never let me know what was going on so my boyfriend called the police back and he had in fact been taken to the hospital. So I called the hospital and they gave me a tiny bit of info. I learned he had been driking quite a bit, he had told me he was not drinking. I know I did the right thing and saved his life. But I'm afraid he will be very very angry with me, maybe not talk to me. I pray he does not lose his job over this. But his life is more important to me than his job. I don't even know if he still has pets and how they will be cared for. Plus his xgirlfriend has a key to the house and she could go in there and trash the place (a house I own). I'm writing this here for I have no friends to talk this over with. And I feel so bad about this that I can't be there and he is gong thru this alone. I hope and pray he comes to understand that I did this because I love hime with all my heart.

    I'm reading your posts late as I answered your post about leaves and wax paper. Now I wonder how all this resolved for you, and also how it went after your heart attack. A friend, 72, she had a heart attack in May 2013, and now her heart went from 35% to now 58% so improving much, though still tired by afternoon. She had all new doctors as well, but the heart doc said come back in a year. She is on Medicare so that may have something to do with not many appointments. Took her off blood thinners as well. So she is happy. She said the test was embarrassing, for heart function with just a flimsy paper over her chest. Hope things are looking up for you.

    You acted as a mother should. Can you find a way to go to him to help him through this bad time, or, get him to come to you? He still needs help it would seem. Will be praying that you will find solutions to your son's need and that you will have strength to help him through a bad time. emoticon

    You and your son are in my prayers. Hope this all passes quickly but do think you should have the locks changed while the resolve their differences so she can't come in while he's at work.
