Happy Thanksgiving everyone! difficult child called last night and this morning from rehab. Apologizing. Kind. Admitting weaknesses. I drove 101 miles one way to see him. He wanted me to come. Gave up Dinner with friends. Supposed to last 2 hours. He asked me to leave in 40 min. He is on triazapan (sp?). Leg visibly shaking when I first saw him. Stopped later. Got more heavy lidded as I was there. Said he wanted to go smoke and sleep. A guy he has known a while in recovery works there. difficult child called him over to talk to both of us a while. I talked with him briefly before I left simply because I needed a shoulder before I got in the car. He said difficult child has lots of shame and is on a lot of medication. He said I did the right thing by coming and ppl leave early all the time. He said either difficult child will get it or he won't. I agree. Going to speak w counselor soon. Ask them to check dual diagnoses. Make it clear that difficult child needs a place to go in 13 days when he is discharged. I gave difficult child a list of 4 places that he needed his assessment sent to get on the waiting list. Other than that, tis difficult child's problem. Going to go to family meetings though as he won't be there and *I* need the support. Thank God for my precious sister who talked to me almost all the way home.
