Hi all, It's been a week since I've talked to my younger son. See...a week ago he told me he may just go and jump off a bridge. I told him I loved him and to take care. He called me the next day from a unknown number and I told him that I would not speak to him for a week as he needed to think about the things that he says to his mother! Since that time...I have gotten 3 texts from him and he has called me numerous times. I did not respond to any of these attempts to talk to me until this morning. His last text was last night around 9pm. He said, "Goodbye you shameful world." I texted him a short while ago and told him... "If your last text was designed to scare me or upset me then it may be ANOTHER week before I talk to you! Stop it or get some help!" I am concerned yet angry. I am still angry about my oldest son's treatment of me due to his new found religious beliefs...shunning me, casting me out because I have mental illness, go to the casino, smoke cigs. My mother went to his daughters 5th birthday this past Sunday. They even had a Holy Bible birthday cake! I'll tell you in my opinion oldest son and his wife and her family ALL live in fear. This is not the relationship I have with the God of my understanding. In any event...I feel it necessary to put the brakes on both of my son's behavior towards me. I am attempting to put up boundaries. Being last on the totum pole, sacrificing for all in the name of being a "good mom", has not served me well. I hope at some point I will earn a little respect from my son's. LMS ps...I think younger son is still homeless yet still has a job somehow someway.
