Okay, well the end of September and beginning of October haven't been great. I had to kick my son out of the house after he didn't come home for a number of days. I changed the locks and met with him for coffee and explained that until he was back at school for a full week, and was ready to show me that he was committed to his education and making positive changes, he couldn't come home. I gave him a bus pass, and gift certificates for food and he has been staying at his friends houses.
It was, bar none, the hardest decision I have ever had to make but I really believe that if I don't let him hit rock bottom now while he's still a youth, he is likely to hit rock bottom as an adult where there aren't as many supports available to him. He has been going to school this week which is a big improvement and I am hoping that by the end of the week he will be able to come home, but it is a battle of wills and it's a fight I can't afford to lose because if he doesn't get his high school education he puts himself at a huge disadvantage.
So of course I'm have been eating horribly, and not exercising as I'm just feeling totally exhausted. PLUS the house is in total disarray because my floors are being done, and they under ordered the flooring so now
