Frustrated and all I want to do is eat.

Postby Fairie » Mon Oct 17, 2005 2:29 pm

I am so exhausted and I feel like just saying stuff it I'll go and eat what I like.

It is so hard trying to keep things running smoothly between my husband (Gerry) and my son (Gary). My son has a quite a few mental problems after many years of drug abuse, he has to be on medication for the rest of his life. He gets so frustrated with having to take his medication that it's a constant worry that he will stop as he has done before and then he looses the plot and has to be hospitalised but that is only after he's totally out of control and the police are also involved. This always happens around Christmas time.

Gerry gets so frustrated with him because he doesn't help him enough (with our business) and that he always has to ask him to do anything and then be told "I'll do it later". He wants Gary to think and go and do things without him having to tell him everything.

I know it's not much that Gerry asks of him and I too get so frustrated with him at times but as the Doctor told us Gary's Brainwaves are all over the place and he actually has holes in his brain. I know he does try but Gerry can't always see that and I'm in the middle.

I'm sorry for rambling but after they had words this morning I totally exploded at both of them then stormed off and did some work outside and now I'm sore and sorry for myself because I got burnt in the sun. :evil: :(

Hi Fay

What a day huh, here i was feeling very torn between eating good and bad and i thought, i might go and post a message maybe that would make me feel better.

Girl, have you put me in my place. I am SO sorry that you have and are having hard times with your son and hubby. I wish that I had some kind of reason as to why i wanted to eat ALL my kids nutri grain bars, but no, i was just being silly.

I am wishing you a better afternoon and night and please know that I am thinking of you and that some days we are the bug and some days we are the windscreen!

LookingForMe, I hope you do join our site your positive input is like a visit from heaven. Thank you so much for dropping in.

Fairie, my younger sister's son has the same problems your son does.
He now has mental problems from drug abuse, they just didn't mix with his insulin. He's also in trouble with the law and doing community service for 2 years. My poor sister had to deal with his mood swings where he didn't care about anyone elses feelings except his own and was constantly doing outrageous things to get attention. He's punched holes in his parents house walls and thrown chairs at his mother (my sister) and these are his lesser crimes you should see his police record.

Big hugs are being sent your way.

Thanks everyone, I think I was just letting it all get to me because of lack of sleep as Gerry's coughing all night and I'm not 100% either.

I know I have to let them sort themselves out and I do most of the time but sometimes it just gets to me. I also know that I cain't stop Gary if he desides to start taking drugs again.

I have told him that I will always love him and help him anyway I can and be there for him but if he chooses to go down that road again he's on his own. He has done it 3 times now and each time we have been to hell and back. He's been clean for 3 years now but it's always in the back of my mind that it could all start again and I don't think I am strong enough to go through it all again.

Sorry for going on again, I do feel better now and the best thing is I didn't give in. Previously I would have gone and comforted myself with food but I have come to far and I will not give in espesially after your words LookingForMe, thankyou. :D
