My last post indicated that my son had been offered a job at the rehab facility where he was a patient. On Jan. 9, insurance cut him off and the facility hired him. As of today, he is still employed there and actually seems to like what he us doing. The pay is not very good, he works 3rd shift but he is ok with it all. He seems to be finally growing up. He tells me hes trying to saving money. He just had a birthday. I felt sad that I couldn't spend time with him, but the distance has done us good. We're on the East Coast and he is one the West Coast. I haven't seen him since October . Hoping to see him in May. He admits he can't come home. Too many bad memories and temptations. I am so proud of him for sticking with staying sober. It's very bittersweet. Parents just want the best for their children and when things turn ugly, it's hard to keep that dream. I'm one of the lucky ones. My son put us thru hell, but he is alive and hopefully back on track to becoming a positive functioning man. My heart breaks for all of those not so lucky and still struggling daily with difficult children. I pray for all suffering such heartache.
