Has anyone been dealing with this? MWM your I, I, I, Me, Me, Me post hit home. For the past three years my son, who just turned 30, has chosen to be homeless. We (I) have gotten to a point that I refuse to help him try to figure things out, especially since he is telling us that he wants to be in charge of his life. A little background, we moved from one state to another--hubby's job---he was struggling back at home, we helped find an apartment and he transferred his job to where we are. Things were good for a while, then he got with a group of "friends" that used his gullible nature. This is a person that has had learning disabilities since he was 3, friends haven't been easy to come by, and he is a follower. Having said that, within the past 5 years he has managed to get into drugs/drinking and who knows what else. Three years ago he decided to run away from everything and become homeless. The guilt we feel is overwhelming, as we have done our best to drive him to interviews, type up resumes, teach him how to budget--help him on many levels with that, helped him find places to live after getting kicked out of a couple places...what we thought parents are supposed to do. He basically, without words, told us to blank off, since he ran away from life. He even ended up into the hospital seriously ill and could have died from it, although that had no effect on him. The problem I have at this point like MWM is how selfish he is when he calls it is all about him. His dad had major surgery recently, when I told him it was like oh really. Not even a tell him I hope he gets well soon. Just need to know I am not alone.
