hello , I am a mother of a 28 year old son who is a heroin addict. He hit his bottom last month. He is now in a rehab in Michigan, far, far away from California where we live and where his drug addicted friends are . He did so well the first few weeks , gained 10 lbs and was so happy being sober . However the last week he has been calling and saying he needs a break . He wants a one week break and then wants to go back, but It doesn't work like that .
My son has NO insurance so we paid 30,000 for him to go 90 days.i don't get it , why is he doing this ? He says it's not because he wants to use. He says he just needs a break from the food, the classes etc.... I am at my wits end with him , he is a grown man and he can do what he wants but if he leaves he can't go back which means he's out and I'm out 20 grand and then need to worry about him ?
Since he has been in rehab I have had the best sleep I've had in the past 10 years . I am starting to get anxiety and sleepless nights again . I can't wrap my head his need to leave the center . What to do? he won't even call me cause he knows I am not okay with that idea. Instead he calls his girl friend and whines to her . Any suggestions from this group would be helpful .
I use to be in really good shape..but over the last 2 years and 1 divorce later I've lost all motivation to do anything. I just recently moved and the gym is 5 minutes from my house so I have no excuse to go.I find my cravings are bad too. I'd appreciate any support and advice to help.
This past year feels like it has been a struggle .. and yet I never saw myself as someone who was suffering with depression .. yet all the signs are there. I've piled on so much weight that I can barely look in the mirror these days, I try so hard to get my life in order,I was recently offered a fabulous job but I had to decline the offer because I really didn't feel that I could mentally do it!...
