My boy

Posted by Tilly on 14 January 2017.

My boy is a lovely kind hearted young man and I love him very much but now I can't cope with him asking for money everyday, he was taken off of methadone and started put on Buprenorphine and I think he may be using on top ... this year things have got so bad that I told him go and die !! I can see he is struggling and I don't have the strength nor energy to help him .. it's like watching him behind a glass 
he tells me he is lonely and very unhappy with his life ... I am struggling and I really need help for my self ... I know that only people who understand what I am going through would be the ones in the same position as me ... he has changed from change of his medication ... he is lost .... I am helpless .... I ask him about having therapy... he agreed and than ask me to pay for it ... he is 23 so his key worker won't help me to support him .... I am a very strong and a private person now I am on my knees praying for help
