A Mother's Worst Nightmarethree days ago, i found out my son is addicted to heroin. I cannot believe i'm even typing these words!..not my son....my son would never do that...well WAKE UP MOM, cuz he did and he does!
His dad and i went to the school councellor, she wanted to talk to us..we figured it was about his lack of attendance, his final chances at graduation etc....never in my wildest imagination did i expect to hear those words come out of her mouth....i lost my mind, the emotions flooded out...i was bawling...my son was bawling...my ex sat in shock. I had to ask the councellor to repeat what she just said...i was hearing NOTHING anymore.
Later at home, my son told me how his body is 'detoxing' right now...he's in pain, he can't sleep, he sweats profusely, he's riddled with anxiety all night long....NOT MY BABY!....how did this happen?? what did i do wrong??
he wants to try detoxing on his own...he doesn't want to go to a facility...everything must be HIS decision, as i'm learning....what as a mother am i supposed to do???...i've tried to tell him, that counselling is the best way to go right now.....he's not convinced.....so what do i do?...do i sit back, and wait for him to overdose???......help me please??!!!
anyone who's gone through anything to do with heroin....please help me
