when will this nightmare end?
Posted by Franticmum on 13 April 2014.
Here we go again, after agreeing to a detox programme my son decided he doesn't need professional help, and left hospital again, he says he was bored in there, he went back to his flat that somehow he is managing to keep by the skin of his teeth, then yesterday turned up at my mum's house at tea time, (we visit my mum every Saturday ) he was in a very strange mood not his usual aggressive self. He carried on as if the last few months had not happened trying to joke about it all, and then wait for it, asked me if he could "borrow" a few hundred pounds, he said he needed to buy another mobile as he had lost his, you can imagine my reply, he then became angry and said I was a useless parent and that if it had been either of his brothers asking I would have gave them the money, I replyed that as they both worked hard and had very good jobs they didn't need to borrow money, he went really wild then shouting and threatening to smash my mum's house up, luckily a neighbour heard the commotion and rang the police, as they arrived he ran off still swearing and saying we would all pay for this. All the police said that as he hadn't committed an offence there wasn't much they could do. I just want this nightmare to end but things are getting worse rather than better, I'm scared of what he is capable of fearing the phone ringing or that knock n the door, I've seen my son in some horrid states but not for a long time like that, even at his worse when he was younger I never feared my son as I do now, his eyes were evil and filled with hatred, really really don't know what to do now I'm so tired of it all, how can someone who said only a week ago that he was sorry for everything in the past and was determined to change as he couldn't keep living that life, and that he loved me so much, do this to me not just once but over and over
