I posted earlier today regarding my 29 year old drug addict son and I feel as though things have come to the end of the line. I cannot keep going through this with him anymore. I am working full time as I have to pay the rent to keep a roof over our heads. I go into work and my head is all over the place. Nobody knows my problem with my son as I only moved to this area 5 years ago and although I have good friends at work I don't really mix with any of them out of work. This is because of the problems with my son. I am not coping at work and am finding it harder and harder. I dread going home after work. I no my doctor would sign me off work if I asked for it as I have told him my problems but I have been trying for it not to happen. Does anyone have any ideas?. I have been in touch with the domestic violence help line and they told me I could be put into a safe house somewhere. I would have to give up my job. Claim housing benefit to be paid for my flat for 2 weeks. Then I would have to clear my flat and put my things in storage and then claim housing benefit to be paid for my hostel/safehouse. I just don't feel in the right frame of mind to be able to deal with all this. I have no money for vans to move my things let alone pay for storage. I also don't drive or have anyone who could do all this for me. And then my biggest problem. My son would be made homeless. He wouldn't get any help from anyone. Could I do that to him!!
