My son told me today he's probably going back to Chicago after he's discharged from the hospital. I'm sure his ex being here has something to do with that. It makes sense, sort of, on one level in that he has Illinois Medicaid and not eligible for Florida Medicaid so if he goes back he can get his tooth extracted and get into rehab. But for the most part I believe it's a disaster in the making. How can he possibly get clean, even with the best of intentions, if his partner continues to use heavily right under his nose? As well as his other friends and associates who use and can provide him with meth? Honestly, I've reached a point of apathy. I don't see anything getting better for him here due to lack of resources and lack of initiative, drive. and action on his part. And it would certainly be easier for my husband and me. At least he wouldn't be showing up at my home all the time under the influence, and if gets snotty, hateful, condescending, abusive, etc., over the phone I can simply end the call and not respond if he calls or texts back. All I know is I will not participate in any efforts to get him back to Chicago, and if he decides he made a mistake and wants to come back to Florida, I won't participate in that either. We didn't bring him down here to turn around and send him back. The "Help me move from A to B" ship sailed completely off the horizon months ago. And when he calls for the umpteenth time crying because Joe kicked him out in the middle of the night and he's sleeping on a park bench or Joe kicked him out of his truck in the middle of nowhere late at night, I simply will not listen to it any more. If that's the kind of life he wants, he's welcome to it and good luck. But no sympathy or help from me, period. If he makes that bed, he can lie in it or get out of himself.
