Just when you think things are looking up, something else happens to bring one’s hopes crashing down. I mentioned a few months ago that my son’s roommate found drug paraphernalia in their apartment. He was going to kick my son out then but decided to let him stay. Well last night, he found more and confronted my son when he came home. He said my son was drunk, and when his roommate said he wanted to drug test him my son said he was tired and felt sick. His roommate pushed him a little to get him to stay and talk, and my son punched him. OMG! He’s never been violent before. His roommate is going to press charges (and I don’t blame him) and he has all his stuff by the front door. So my son will be homeless once again. I’m going to send my son a text telling him NOT to contact me. I simply can’t deal with the drama in his life. He has had numerous people try to help him over the past year to no avail. Until he can be clean and sober, I believe there is no helping him. The funny part is my mother was talking to my son last night. When she asked him if he was staying out of trouble he said, “Yes, I have two jobs and don’t have time.” I told her I hoped he was telling the truth but of course the email I received this morning told a different story. It’s so sad that I can’t believe anything that comes out of my son’s mouth. The police officer told my son’s roommate that if he presses charges my son would likely stay in jail for a couple of days. My son is also on probation back home (his last report date was next month…great way to screw that up!) so I’m not sure what happens now and I really don't care. Sad to say, I think I would be happy if he ended up in jail. It may be the only way he can receive the help he needs. All I know is I didn’t ask for this or raise him this way. There is nothing else I can do for him which is why I’m going to tell him not to contact me again. I need to cut all ties. His choices…his life. If I continue to stress over him and try to change his life, my life will be hell and I simply can’t live that way for the next 40 years. I’ve done it long enough.
