My son is a liar a thief and totally unwilling to accept he has a problem. This has been escalating for nearly 4 years and I have had enough! I hate what he is doing to himself, and how it effects the rest of us...Ive tried everything, talking, supporting , being there 24/7, but im tired...I could cry quite easily at a drop of a hat, feel at total failure as a mother, feel angry that he puts alcohol and drugs over his health, well being and us....Hes my boy, and I love him unconditionally, but I also hate him.....We cant leave him in the house alone, our trust for him has all but deminshed, but there is a part of me that really hopes and wants things to get better...Im pretty sure he will end up in prison, as he is on his last tag warning...and do you know what, I hope he goes...perhaps we will have a few months grace..peace and quiet.....Im not heartless, just lost, afraid, and wondering when something terrible will happen....The effect its had on our family is devastating....A little boy who had so many dreams, gone forever!
