I am 52 yr old single mother of 4 adult children. They all have moved out and are living on their own. My son (26 years old) chooses to live on the streets (in the riverbed) near my home. I refuse to help him. He has a drug addiction. I have helped him get into a program 2 different times and he left both of them after just 2 days. He continuously comes to my home every morning and every night. Sometimes in the middle of the night. He is always begging for food and money. I don't give it to him. I used to. 8 weeks ago was when I finally stopped. I tell him to go away and not come back, but he doesn't listen. Sometimes he is outside for quite some time yelling and pounding on my door. Many times I've called the police. He has been doing this for almost 2 years. In those 2 years he has been arrested twice out of at least 30 calls. I was able to get a restraining order but because he was homeless the police couldn't serve him (no address) and nobody is ever around when he does show up, to serve him. I went back to the court house 3 separate times to get extensions. After the 3rd one I was unable to get back to the court and it expired. He has been in and out of jail for the last 8 years. His longest stay was 9 months. Is it bad for me to say I was at peace. I was. I was sure he was safe, had food, and a cot to lay down on. I wish he would get arrested again. I really do. I am on edge, daily, wondering when he is going to show up. He scares me. He stands 6'4", I don't dare step outside if he shows up. I talk through the security screen and tell him to go away, to get help and to leave me alone. If he gets in a certain mind set, he starts to talk or yell a bunch of nonsense and this scares me. Mind you, I don't live in a residential area with neighbor's on each side. I am the only home on 19 acres next to a riverbed Channel. Across from me is a large main street and shopping center parking lot. Next to one side of me is the riverbed. The other side is apartment complexes with a big brick wall and behind me is a park. His disturbances are not heard by anyone but me. How do you get help for someone that doesn't want it? How do I make it stop. It's making me a wreck.
