Barbara S He's your son, so you're probably not going to be able to separate yourself from his problems. My daughter is in rehab, and I am going through the same worries. Addiction is an illness, and just like with any other illness, all we can do is offer our support, engage the help of medical professionals, and hope for a good outcome. Have you attended any support group meetings? I have found them helpful because you find out how other people have learned to cope. When I am feeling totally overwhelmed, I make a cup of tea, curl up on the couch, and watch a feel-good happy-ending movie. Sounds silly, but at least for a couple of hours you can get your mind off your troubles! Here's hoping that both of our children are successful in their recoveries!
