Drama that follows

If I wonder why I am exhausted, I just need to read my blog to read the drama that follows every week.

Last night we received a phone call from the father of one of my son's friends. Apparently my son was visiting and stole his tablet. The man wants it back and deserves it back. Our son took off when we confronted him with this, he snuck in while we were sleeping.

This morning, my husband raged at me. He then disappeared late this afternoon. I am watching his entire week's pay get withdrawn $60 at a time...His account is down to $92.00 and it's only 7:30pm.

Addicts have dramatic consequences in their lives. Loved ones of addicts also have many dramatic consequences in their lives too, just by proxy.  Conclusion? I must thrive on this drama on some level to keep it so near me all the time.

I knew I was crazy...


  1. Hi Any Woman, Any Person,
    I just finished reading your entire painful and raw. So so so many of us have/are there on this nightmare. You commented that you read 'A Mom's Serious Blunder'. If you return to her blog and look over to the right; she will have a "blogroll"; if you click on to any one of those titles, it will take you to several other blogs. Some of these blogs are about addiction (ugh). Here are some others that you may want to look at.

    I hope this helps you. I want to commend you on trying to take care of yourself.
    A bit about myself....soon to be entering the decade of the 60's, wish I could be back in the 1960's!, and my son is in his late 30's and is my addict.

    Your blog is so raw and well written. Thank you for allowing us to read it. I wish 20yrs ago I had these blogs to read, because if there is ONE thread that connects everyone of these blogs together it's 'TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF'; I sadly never did. The health issues I am dealing with for the rest of my life has stemmed from my lack of taking care of myself.

    I hope you continue to be kind to yourself; you deserve it!

  2. Thank you for sharing these other blogs, I've just gotten around to reading some of them. More importantly, thank you for reaching out to me. Kindness really does count and I'm grateful for your small kindness.
