The drama of living with an a child with an active addiction is exhausting. The never ending concern for their safety. The not knowing if you just witnessed your last exchange with your child and racking your brain trying to figure out what to do now. These are feelings we all of know, all to well. These feelings do not go away quickly.
Our son is home and seems to be working his way to a clean and sober life. He is sticking it, his term, and I don't know what exactly he is doing or if there is anything I can do to help. But he knows we are there if he needs us and I respect him to ask if he needs me. I believe he will one day if he needs too.
It's time for me to recognize everyone out there that reads this blog. I have an endless gratitude to all of you. Some of you that have been reading us for a while know we write for our own therapy. Mom and I get so much more out of this than we put in; we owe all of you a huge thank you. Without your words of counsel, your thoughts and all of you that prayed for our family it would have been an impossible journey. I am not trying to cut the journey short either, we know we still have a long way to go but right now we have found a very comforting inn and the rest is nice.
