I am just feeling really down tonight and need to vent to somebody so forgive me if I tend to ramble. I really don't have my head together about this. difficult child had been doing fairly well - was going to work every day, etc. For him, that was a huge step forward. Well, no more. I was gone last week: 5 friends from college and I are all turning 60 this year so we rented a condo in Daytona Beach and went to celebrate. We had a wonderful time but on Friday, the day I was scheduled to fly home, I got a call from difficult child saying he and his wife were fighting and he was too upset to go to work. Supposedly they told him to take a few days off. By the time I got home, he and wife were together again but he has still not gone back to work. Today he said he is not going back to that job. We live in a rural area where there are very few jobs available and, with his work history, finding one is next to impossible. He would have qualified for insurance June 1 and they were going to give him a raise. I know it I should just say "fine" and let him sink or swim but it is hard to let the grandkids go hungry. If it were just difficult child and his wife I would be happy to sink or swim but I am sure he will be trying to get "emergency" money from me or, more likely, from my 92 year old mother. The thing that bothers me the most is that he really is making no sense at all. He is grouchy, irritable, and maybe irrational. I know he is not bad enough that we could have him locked up but I wonder if that is what he needs. He really seems to have gone off the deep end. I wish I had stayed in Florida.
