Full moon on Friday Night

Just got duped into giving my son's friend a ride to meet his wife at work only to find out it was to hit her up for money for crack-probably. Now Ricky, my recovering son, is with him for the evening. I thought I was going for a pleasant ride to King's for ice cream and coffee. Ricky actually didn't want to go and I asked him to ride with us. They had another ride home (I thought it was his friend's wife)  but its not. My other son wen to SS and will probably get drunk as well. I can't sleep. My stomach is shaking. I just have that bad feeling again. I know there's nothing I can do.

I\'m sorry you are going through this. Don\'t feel bad about giving the ride. We have all been manipulated so many times. Even when we should know better, we still do it.

My gut instinct is often right, so I tend to trust it. However, I do find that when I get into a position where I\'m picturing the worst, the truth is not as bad as I thought. So, don\'t buy trouble. Worrying never changed anything. All it does is to make you feel worse. If something bad is going on, you\'ll find out soon enough.

I\'ve been dealing with insomnia for some time now and I just found a wonderful way to relax and get some sleep. I have an Iphone and got an \"ap\" with relaxing sounds. My favorite combination is a flowing river, a windy day, and a little thunder. A music box played quietly is another one that works well. If you don\'t have an Iphone, then you can get a machine like this at department stores for about $20.

Thanks for listening and writing. I do know better than to put myself through this again and again! Usually my gut instinct is right as well, but this time I was totally off. And somehow, when I think I\'m picturing the worst, it has played out to be worse than I thought. So I do try and just picture-nothing. Let God as they say-it does work for me most of the time.

Sleep?? I have gotten better....for several years, I could have said, \"What\'s that?\" No, I don\'t have an iphone, but I do have a machine. Yep, it does work wonders! But, it\'s still not enough. I\'ve had to resort my own level of drugs-Ambian-which works, but not 100%. So my night is Ambian-relaxing sounds-meditation-aroma-and maybe I\'ll sleep! It\'s a lot of effort to relax!
But, thanks again for listening and taking the time to respond. I\'ve only recently found this website and am finding it to be a wealth of comfort and information. There\'s some good people out there! Hope your weekend is going well!
