Oh Kim I'm so sorry, maybe it will all turn around for you all. Is there any way of filing bankruptcy for him. That way you would not have to pay his debts. I'm sure the laws on Australia are different from here. Also to deal with the stress, you might try to see if you can find a few minutes of quiet time each day and read scripture or meditate. I find it helps a lot. My daughter gets up early every morning and reads while we are all still asleep.

Hugs and Prayers,

I am so sorry you are going through all of this, Kim. I use to work in a drug rehab facility and it is just as hard on the parents as it is on the kids. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time. Please try and take care of yourself. You are no good to anyone if you let yourself get even sicker

I am so sorry to hear that you are dealing with so much, yet again. I know that, sometimes, you must feel that it is never ending. However, you are such a loving and caring parent and I hope that your children recognize and appreciate this. I wish your son the very best in his treatment and I hope that he recovers quickly. It is a long road back from substance abuse and mental helath issues.
You are, as always, in my thoughts and my prayers.

Peace and Blessings
