    Doing good. Working out. Signed up for na classes and a job in prison. Have to remember not to get my hopes up, plus i wonder if hes thinking that if he goes to na classes , get job, maybe mom will come visit me or send money. Dont trust him.

    give it time for the rubber to hit the road so to speak. Hoping that perhaps he has turned the corner. Your trust is something that he will need to earn back and it will take a long time. I don't blame you for being guarded. Meanwhile hope YOU are doing well and taking good care of yourself.

    Trust has to be earned, and especially trust that has been broken in the past. I totally understand where you are coming from. Good he's doing something positive. Good he wanted to share it with you. Hopefully that was his only motivation.

    RN0441 100% better than I was but not at 100% yet


    Try to stay neutral. I know for me that I refuse to get too high or too low based on what our son says.

    I just can't do it anymore. I'm very cautious with myself now.
