As old as I am I don't know how it's supposed to be.It's like he is our purpose in life right now. I know it's not how it's supposed to be but we are bonded with him and he with us.
New - You got this! Your faith will bring you through. We are here for you and you are doing everything that you can with open eyes and a clear mind. God bless you as you go through these next few days that your granddaughter enters treatment. Even being open to it is a first step. It took about 30 days with a few false starts to get my son to the finish (starting) line of the door to recovery. I light a holy candle for my son every day and today I will share my prayer with your family.Thank you, Deni D, Copa, Crayola, New Leaf, KTmom, BrokenInside, for all the words of encouragement. I actually feel pretty calm. Venting here and going to alanon (we do not have naranon in our town) must be helping. I don't feel that panic like I used to.
The old me would have been driving around all night, searching for her, calling her, and being in a panic. How sad that this becomes so common we hardly have a response.
I hope I have good news by tomorrow...thanks for being supportive and letting me vent.
