    Hi Everyone,

    Well my difficult child starts a job today!! He seems to be doing really well. He is actually posting some really positive stuff on FB. He has a new girlfriend...and I am not sure it is good that he is in another relationship but it is really good he is moving past the old one. And I am not seeing signs of substance use at all. So I am glad. I also am definitely protecting myself from getting excited or too hopeful and have to remind myself to keep my mouth shut when I am with him, so that all my doubts dont come tumbling out.

    That is a great news! Often those positive changes can cause a positive spin and lead to much better place, same way negative things can make one spiral out of control.

    It tends to be baby steps but hopefully new girlfriend and new job both boost his confidence but also motivate him to take better care of himself and work his issues, both with substance abuse and other.
