Please say a prayer or two for my oldest son. He is going through some heavy duty stress right now and seems that the only way he wants to handle it is by self medicating. He called me on Friday night and wanted help, but as an adult I couldn't do much for him but give him the crisis hotline numbers. Well, he came very, very close to accidentally overdosing Saturday night and remembers nothing for almost 3 days, didn't eat or drink anything but alcohol. I spent the better part of yesterday talking to him and going to his house. His girlfriend went to her mom's and took the baby and left her for the weekend. He is just so overwhelmed and doesn't do well with stress. He did call one crisis line only to be told it just sounded like anxiety and that they couldn't help him. I was in the room when he called...he was shaking and rambling and didn't tell them the full story, but felt blown off by them. This seems to happen every time he tries to get help. After three hours he seemed to calm down, but this morning he was feeling the same way. I know there is nothing I can do to help him and I do know that he loves his daughter and girlfriend very much and would never in a million years hurt them in any way. They are renting her aunt's basement for $400/month and now her aunt feels like they need to be told things to do (like a parent would, not like a landlord). Well, to say that this is going over like a lead balloon with him would be the understatement of the year. I have them pretty much convinced them that they need to save their money and get their own place, even if it's just a small one bedroom and they both agree. Her family is VERY domineering and a bunch of nut cases, but who am I to talk with my son acting this way. I know I need to get to out the Detachment 101 Manual...it's been a while since I've had to use it. I hope and pray he can get the help he needs (he has no health insurance) for his depression and anxiety. Please keep him in your prayers that something comes through that will help him. He did promise me, something he does not do lightly, that if he starts to feel like he did this weekend ever again, he will check himself into the hospital - health insurance or no health insurance. Thank you all for being here...I can't really talk to anyone else about this without breaking down in tears. It's been a very, very long day at work!
