It’s been a while since I made a post, probably over a year, not that I really posted much. I was going to write out some history of the last few years with my son, but to tell you the truth, everything is getting blurred time wise. Needless to say he’s stolen from us, stolen from a business where he used to work, and is addicted to drugs. We thought he was getting his life back on track many times. He paid back the business and I think only did a day or so in jail. He entered an outpatient drug treatment and seemed to be doing okay for a while. Well, yesterday my 26-year-old son was just arrested for theft again. He is currently living in another state with a friend (who is really trying to help my son). My son befriended an older couple who lives near him. They’ve treated him like a son. Well, they used to give him their credit card to buy stuff at the store for them, and recently my son started getting cash advances. They found out and pressed charges. So now he has a court date of 11/1 (his roommate posted bail). With his prior theft charge, I’m totally expecting he will spend time in prison. I’m just happy he’s not living near me. The only reason I know all this stuff is because his roommate keeps us updated. My son rarely contacts us. The last time he contacted me was about 2 weeks ago calling for money, which I refused to give him. We've been told he's doing drugs again (which is not a big surprise) I really don’t want any contact with him. I feel sadness, disappointment, and embarrassment of having my son in jail and nothing but a criminal. I’m not really sure why I’m even posting this other than to get some stuff down on “paper” and post to a group of people who understand. Maybe prison is what he needs to finally admit he’s hit rock bottom, although we thought he had hit rock bottom several times in the last three years. Maybe there are programs in prison that will help an addict. I have no idea, and part of me doesn’t even care anymore. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.
