YOU ARE ALL IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS --- Like you guy said it was worth it to get him the help so i guess in it all there is some good to what happend as your son is receiving the help needed to get him back on track! I'm also glad that it all wasn't more serious!! Hang in there mom! your son is lucky he's got you and that your man is who he is
Keep us posted to how everyone's doing -- ((((((hugs)))))) i'm glad that the police took him where he really should have gone and not to jail warrent or not -- jail isn't where he should have been going! I know all to well bout having ppl commited as well and the pain in the rear that that can truly be! And that whole "wait to call crises intervention" blah on them! Most ppl know when your already trying to contact someone it's to the point that that person really really needs help now - not later! Again you are all in my thoughts n prayers
thanks ronswife, you know to well about meds, he is off court order about 2 months ago and that has a lot to do with him not taking them, he has done it 3 times now, and i always tell his case worker not to tell him he is off order, so that he can continue to be on his meds, i called about a week ago to his case worker that he was not takeing hids meds and she didnt have much to say, but to try and get him here, she knows that iss imposibble, i cant get him in the car. but everything is ok now he is safe from harm,and so are we, i miss him dreadfuly. im waiting for a few more days to go visit him, as he says im not his mother, that alone is hard to deal with. thank you for your kind prayers and i know god is on our side.. god bless
