Recovery is heart breaking
Posted by CANT TAKE NO MORE on 10 March 2015.
My son has fought to stay sober for 9. Months....for those that know me, it's been highs and lows....3 weeks ago the lows reached rock bottom....my son had a mental break down.....life got in the way,you see....worrying about cuts at work, would he still have a job, worrying about is nan who is very ill, low self esteem.....things that you and me can cope with....for him ,this was too much....over the last 3 weeks I have been with him every step of the way...taken him to appointments, talked in the early hours, hugged together, cried together, had a family session with his psychiatrist, doctors appointments, checking he is taking his anti depressants.....his counsellor has been a great support..had it not been for her, we could still be waiting for that urgent help....one day at a time is the only way we can take things, but for now, he is calm....addiction is a bast@@, but the toughest fight is recovery.......
