Aww sweetie you are definitely loved and cherished here and thank you so much!:)Very pretty!!Take care of yourself first and foremost:)(((HUGS)))
I dedicate this to all you wonderful, beautiful, caring women who have expressed your support as I go through this rough period in my life. Thanks to each of you. Your kindness makes a big difference. -Hugs-
Because_You_Cared
In my opinion, what makes children so wonderful and draining to love is that they're both part of us and individuals with their own personality, beliefs, ethics etc. "I hate and I love. You may ask how I do it. I don't know, but I do feel it happen and I'm in agony". Granted, Catullus wrote it for his lover, but I think it would suit a child better - coming from "crux", the cross, "excrucior" is a way too powerful verb.
You've done what you could. It is really up to him now - in fact, it always has. Also, the way I see it it's not your son you're letting go. You're letting go the ill, abusive man nested within, who has nothing to do with the two of you meant as mother and child.
Sending your way all the love I'm capable of. ❤
Oh, my dear, sweet friend -
I don't think there's anything more painful in life than when our children are wounded and hurting. It isn't any easier when they themselves have created so many of the circumstances generating the pain. Having to watch people you love act self-destructively over and over is brutal - and the ultimate in feeling powerless.

Like others here, I wish so much that I could give you hugs in person, but I can't. When my sister & I need a sister hug, and we're apart, we do "virtual hugs" over the phone. We kind of scrunch ourselves up and wrap our arms around ourselves, (at least I do - I've never seen her do it), and send the virtual hug. I'm sending you the same hugs now.

All my love,
k ♥♥♥♥♥

Thank you so much for your kindness, Misti. I never thought my revelation would lead to such a generous outpouring of support from you and others here. Yes, we're going through a rough time right now, primarily because I've finally gotten fed up with all the problems and crises. I am done, done, done with my son's hostility and derision, followed by requests for money. Which he then proclaims is the only love I'm capable of showing. Sigh. But I will get to the other side—especially with the caring from the beautiful people here. -hugs-
I have lost so many.... too many ppl to addictions and it gets really hard to let go.But we have purpose in this world and sometimes it's not to always pick up our kids.They *need* to learn to dust themselves off by themselves sometimes.If you need to talk...I am a really good listener( so I have been told:) )I have two shoulders:)Take care sweetie!

My prayers are going to you and your son...I hope that you can find the strength to make it through.It is hard to lose someone to an addiction.I can understand your pain and I really hope things get better.Much love((hugs))
Thank you for your support, Shah. I've taken your words into my heart and am drawing strength from them.
I, too, believe God entrusts the most difficult tests to the ones he believes can handle it. Sometimes, though, I tell him he could love me a little less. Of course, I say that with tongue in cheek. :-) I think the biggest lesson I'm going to get out of life with my son is the art of forgiveness—of him and others, yes, but mostly of myself. We'll see, won't we? I hope you're still here if, and when, such an epiphany occurs. Bless you for your kindness. You are special to me. -love-
