difficult child has been hanging out with a group of kids who are definitely BIG difficult child's themselves. The one boy was in the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) with difficult child years ago and the other boy is definitely shady. Since difficult child started hanging out with them he's become more distant. He only calls me when they're not around. He never asks me to come see him anymore. He's up all night with them and sleeps all day. He got caught shoplifting with them. difficult child has never been into drugs before but it wouldn't surprise me if he is doing them now. We saw him at our town's annual Labor Day fair on Sunday with these boys. difficult child was flaunting money around like there was no tomorrow. That right there is a BIG red flag because difficult child has NO money. I asked him where he got it and he told me a million different stories. So the truth is obviously something bad. I didn't press him because he would have started raging and there's no point in that anymore. Anyway, he's supposed to move into a rooming house at the end of this week. His very own place to live finally!!! After EVERYTHING we've been through. He had an intake appointment at 10 am and guess what? When his MHA worker went to pick him up at the motel he wasn't there! And to be honest, I don't think he was there at ALL last night because I tried to call a million times and also this morning. No answer. I called the one kid and he was all like "ummmm no....I haven't seen him" but I could tell he was lying. I told him to have difficult child call his MHA worker and left it at that. I also left difficult child a message on his Facebook. One part of me is furious that difficult child is doing this and the other part of me is worried that something has happened to him. I can't get in touch with him and it's not like him to not be in his room at all! Uggggh! I just want to scream!!
