Same As Last Year
I looked in my journal posting this time last year and saw almost the same words that I could write this year. My son, Jonathan, is getting deeper in trouble because of his addiction to prescription pain medications. Behind on rent, car payment, doctor shopping, and begging for money. I thought that I could save him, but I think it has finally come to me at the deepest level that I cannot. I have to let go.
I hope if any other parents out there are dealing with an addict, that we can perhaps gain strength from each other.
