Earlier this evening....

a dark thing happened to my oldest stepson.


My son, who is not quite 23, called me.  My son had found his roommate and best friend  dead in his bed.  The poor friend had lost his father about a month ago, and had other issues, and the police suspect an od situation.

Son, who lives about 350 miles away in another state, is very distraught and wants to come home. 

I'm kind of wanting him to, even though we really don't have space for him...he's kind of fragile anyway and has had some substance abuse problems, and had just been getting his act together, and been clean for a good bit of time...most of a year.

I'm kind of scared that instead of coming home, he'll look up old friends and get talked out of coming home and get  high instead.  Heaven only knows what'll happen then.

Keep my poor boy in your thoughts.

Oh my, how terrible! I will keep him in my thoughts, and hope he comes back to you soon before he is tempted to do anything reckless out of grief! @HUGS@

What a horrible thing to have happen! I would be very worried about his reaction, too. It would probably be a good thing for him to come home for a little while. I will wish all of you all the best in that situation.

If you can swing it, let him come home for awhile.

Having some experience with this (not as a user myself), there's two ways an incident like this can go, and you've pegged one of them.

1.) He's upset and distraught and goes for the thing that in the past has killed his pain fast - which wouild be narcotics in his case, I assume.

2.) He has this object lesson in why drugs are very, very bad which will push him further away from using them.

If you can give him some family support and get him away from the temptation, my intuition would suggest 2 would be more likely to hold than 1.

What everybody else has said. Your stepson about the same age as my son--I'll keep him in my thoughts.

Oh sweetie!!! :hugggggggggggggggggggggg: I'm so sorry to hear about this. Certainly he needs both of you now to get through this difficult time and to avoid going back to his old habits. Jeez, just now when he was putting himself together.

You know I will have him in my prayers (C ?)as well as the rest of your family as well as his roomate.

You need to talk, pull my ears at my yahoo. I may look as not online, but most of the times I'm connected.

Love you, count on me for whatever you need!

:squeezing-huggggggggggggggggg:

OMG... Maybe he should come home even if it's just for a few days. It sounds like he really needs his family now... and it also sounds like you need him to be there too. You'll be in my prayers tonight...

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
