In May my son threatened to kill himself. He put a knife to his throat and said he would do it. I called 911 but he ended up coming home. Then about 2 weeks later he did it again. This time I was at work and my ex called 911 and he went back to the hospital and this time they kept him.
We had been having a lot of problems with him, doing drugs and stealing. He stole money from his sisters and brother, me . He even stole the head phones I got from the Ellen Degeneres Show. We got them back but it was so upsetting.
Anyway he has been in a treatment center since. He has been there for just about 3 months. And I have to say, he has made some awesome progress!! He is no longer mad and angry, and he is of course off the drugs. He feels bad for what he did to his sisters (stealing their money) and to me.
He has had some home visits for a few hours here and there. When he is home its actually a pleasure to have him here. We talk again and we laugh. Theres no more yelling and fighting with any of us. He gets along with his sisters and they give him hugs and kisses again.
He has done awesome and he can come home but he is afraid of falling back into the same habbits and doing drugs again. He wants to stay another month to gain the strength to keep away from the drugs. This has been the worst year of my life but my son is getting better and is becoming the young man that he had hidden behind his anger. I am so proud of him and I love his so very much.
All his problems started because of bullying. He was bullied his whole life. We tried moving but that didnt help it actually got worse there. He was expelled for carrying a knife because he was afriad of getting beat up after school. He also has Abandonment issues. But he is working on all of this and he is just an amazing young man.
Sorry this is sooo long but I needed to share this. I am so proud of him and I want the world to know! Thanks for letting me post about him on here!
