RN, I remember you and your family well. I am so glad he is sober for so long and that you have some hope, even though at this point this is their journey and I suppose we just can't get caught up in it no matter where it leads. We took a spontaneous weekend trip to a beautiful little town about 3 hours north. My 18 yo daughter was on road trip and she couldn't check in to the hotel she had reserved because they said you had to be 21. Couldn't help but think how many difficult children have ruined that for the good kids. Anyway, we went up there and rented 2 rooms. It was lovely to get away and although whirlwind, we had a great time. Really brings home how hard Difficult Child is to travel with. First time we have gone without him as we can't trust him at home. My daughter took some fans to where Difficult Child is staying and she said some things that indicate that he is using drugs. I think she wanted to tell me more but boyfriend was there so maybe she will tell me today. My husband was furious about it, but it is what we expected. He says he has no hope and that he doesn't care but he must. Difficult Child sent me a text later asking if we had an air mattress, daughter had said he was sleeping on one with a hole. I told him no that someone had taken it and never brought it back (it was him). Anyway, back to work today and hope everyone has a good week!
