Out Of My Depth
Posted by Queen Bee on 30 December 2016.
My son is 19, i have recently got divorced and moved out of the family home. He has changed. He used to e lively, talkative and funny. After starting college 2 years ago , he stated smoking, then smoking canabis. I had my hip replaced and he stole all my pain killers.... Now he is thin, pale, withdrawn . He never eats with us as a family. He is quiet He is illusive, comes in very late and stays up all night, then sleeps most of the day.I don't go know where he goes. He crashed his car and didn't even know he had ! He is hard to rouse when asleep. The room stinks of alcohol. He drinks alone. He can be aggressive and slur his speech. Yesterday I found a business card torn in half and half made into a small tube, along with a sharp knife . It was hidden under a cushion in my lounge. Suddenly I feel out of my depth and scared.
