A while back, my adult son finally admitted that he was struggling with alcohol, depression etc. After so many years of denial and one story after the other. He reached out to me with this info among other things. A couple weeks went by and we had a few conversations here and there, just about regular stuff. I Did not mention anything to do with sobriety. A few days ago I messaged him" after our candid convo couple weeks ago, how are things working out for you?" Even tho days ago he saw the message, he's not responding. This is a familiar pattern of his, and my pattern is always thinking and hoping that things will change and I can ask that question and receive an answer, be it pos. or neg. Some days I can accept the reality of the situation as a whole and other days the reality is so sad to me. I miss my son and im grieving our relationship today. Thanks for letting me get this out.
