    Friday night my difficult child overdosed. He was found unconscious and taken to the ER.

    Tox screen showed Barbituates, alcohol and weed in his system but we were told he was displaying like someone on Meth or K2. As thevdays have progressed, the doctors are convinced he took something synthetic that they cant see on their labs.

    He's currently on a ventilator in ICU. If this isn't his bottom, I don't want to see what is.

    Prayers and thoughts appreciated.

But your higher power can. I so deeply sorry and I pray for his complete recovery and a complete turn from this life to a brand new life.

    Sending you prayers!!! Please keep us updated on his progress. I agree, praying this is bottom for him....

    Meth would definitely show up on a screen. Not sure about that K2 stuff...

    Aw, sweetie, my heart is with you and I am holding your hand. I hope for the best for your son and that this is what he needs to get the help he deserves. Drug addiction is so ugly, so retched, so all-consuming, but he did express a wish for things to be different for him, didn't he? This is a good time in my opinion to be by his side and offer to support him if he goes for help...to let him know there is hope. Like you don't know this!!!!

    Hugs and more hugs for your mommy heart and wishing your son a good recovery. Sending prayers.

    I am praying for your hurting mommy heart. I am praying for your child that he turns his life around. I am also feeling rage that our selfish offspring have the audacity to bring this pain into our lives when THEY could have chosen to live a much healthier and reasonable life.

    Gentle HUGS for you. Please take care of yourself. He is in good hands.
