Went to see my AS today during visiting hours at rehab. It is so good to see peace on his face. It gives me hope.
He didn't want to visit the entire two hours and that was ok. He is working his program and feels good about himself. He says he will do it this time. I pray that he will but I know life will always be a battle for him. I am giving him moral support only and encouragement. I am working my program too and have bonded with my al anon family and look forward to my meetings.
The struggle for me is at home with my recovering AH who is mad at our son and won't even go visit or talk to him over the phone. This is sad for me because he is depressed and giving me the silent treatment as well. I have asked him to go to meetings or counsling but he says no. It's no wonder that losing a child or having an addicted child causes divorce and that's where we are headed. The stress has torn us apart and I don't think at this point either one of us wants to fix it. All I can do is keep getting help for me.
