I haven't posted here in a while because I had a physically rough winter here near Boston, so I wasn't online much. Anyway, before I start, I want to say Hello again, and hope that you are all ok. In the last few months I've come to realize that my 27 year old son has stolen the following jewelry from our house: His younger brother's high school ring (14k gold). MY high school ring (10k gold). A very special 14k gold seahorse charm with an emerald in its eye A 14k gold and emerald ring that my parents gave me when I was a child. Various other 14k gold charms including a charm my husband bought me of Cinderella's castle while we were in Disney World over 10 years ago. A gold and onyx and green sapphire ring that looked like an owl's face, that belonged to my father. He has also stolen a few of my brand new Yankee Candles to pawn for a few bucks. I am so stressed again. I took 3 Ativan tonight so I wouldn't start crying or anything. This kid has the emotional level of a 15 year old; he does things with no thought to the consequences. He is never mean or disrespectful in his speech. He doesn't want to be kicked out of our house. I honestly don't think he has the faculties to take care of himself. He is very smart, but stupid, if that makes sense. I see a psychologist and she told me to take him the DMH (dept. of mental health), where he will be put on ma list to wait for assistance. I honestly don't know how much longer I can live like this. We have installed a deadlock on his brother's bedroom door because he was breaking in to his room, that's he was able to steal the ring, and cash over the years. I just needed a place to get this out. I can't talk to anyone about this. I'm just trying to hang in there. Thanks, if you are still reading.
