      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

My adult son has finally pushed us to the point where we must grieve what we thought he would be...

Recommended Posts

Well, he finally did it this time.  Our 19 year old is in serious trouble and is currently sitting in jail because of his behaviors and horrible choices.  I am struggling to understand how we got here... We saw signs early on and he has been on 100's of treatment plans and yet we still ended up exactly where we were afraid we would.  Now we need to figure out how to move forward.  I need help with this, I feel a constant heartache and feeling of loss that I can't describe.  He had such a bright future, or so we thought.  

Any advice on coping with the decisions, the backlash and how to move forward is welcomed.

Dear brokenbyheartache,

I am sorry to hear about your experiences wit your son. I know its extremely difficult to cope and accept. I know you love your son and did the best you could for him.  We all try.

There are a lot of resources in the community and through church. If you want to maybe consider talking to a counsellor or therapist or joining a support group. There are also many good websites dedicated to parents going through similar experiences.

Sending you all my thoughts and prayers.
