Maybe your kids were adversely influenced by it, maybe only partly. Donít blame yourself too much. You donít know for sure if your relationship caused your sonís problems right now.

Control is a biggie behind every dysfunction. I hear what you are saying about the control your son is trying to assert.

I hope you can get him professional help. Iím not sure what else to suggest. Iím sure Iíd keep trying to keep my kid safe as long as I could, too.

Maybe you can grab him off the street and put him into a program? Iím not sure about how any of that works.

Hugs and prayers for you!
I am glad your kids are doing well and your relationship with your husband has improved. I think you are a good daughter, mom and wife. You are own of the kindest people I know.

I know I was ruminating too much this weekend about my mental illness ruining my family's lives. I was having a relapse but pulled myself together yesterday. I know I am a good wife and mother as well.

There are programs out there for my son but only if he willingly wants to go into them. I will never give up on him but it is a balancing act trying to figure out how much to help.
