Somewhere I read:  A mother is only as happy as her unhappiest child.  I'm finding that phrase to be true in my own life.  I'm trying hard to enjoy my home and family and friends, but always there is a film-sometimes darker than others-a film of sorrow, worry, and grief.  I think it must be like this when you've lost a child to death; always part of you unavailable for life.

I think it is important for me to be thankful that my son is alive.  Every day that he is alive I can have hope that God will pull him from the abyss of addiction that he dwells in.

I tried to comment a couple of days ago and I don't know if it did not go through or my comment was rejected.

I'm sorry you're going thru this and I will pray for you and your son. I had a son addicted but he's clean now, thanks to God.

I guess God brought me by your page to share a little hope with you.I tried my first"high"6,7 years old. All I had to do was tell a nurse(was raised in hospital)I'm in pain and they would give me a pill.About 1 hour later I could say that did not help the pain.They would tell me to go to my room.Where they would meet me with a shot of Morphine.I do NOT blame Dr.'s,or anyone I chose to continue drinkingdrugging until my39Th Birthday.When a Judge said prison did not help you, maybe this rehab would help. God knew I was tired of being sick & tired.somewhere 30-45 days in a 120 day program.I like doubting Thomas asked for a personal answer.I bet a lie detector would say I DID put my finger into the nail scared hand of our Lord & Savior.Jesus reached down into the dirty filthy pit I dug for my self & cleansed me clean with the Blood & water that poured from Jesus speared hole in Jesus side.I 'll pray for your son & you.God Bless

I don't get on here very often any more. It is September and you posted this in July. Just want to say seriously I could have wrote this one myself. This mirrors my life exactly. Love you Kathy. I pray some day we will be able to tell each other we survived/they survived and life is good for them because they found Jesus and He is their everything.
