This is a message for me.. Am glad am online to read this.
My son has been giving me horrors.
I feel my Christianity isn’t helping.
I keep feeling helpless.. Entering bouts of depression because of his addictions..
I have reached a place where I can’t trust him, can’t even look at him.
There are no support groups were I come from. I need a group of friends who are going through this as well..
I pray for the peace of GOd.
Dear Eno Ayola, I know your pain and the feelings of depression at times. If there are no support groups in your area, possibly you could start one. There must be other parents dealing with the same issues as you and you need each other. Also, this is a link for Alanon literature. I’m not sure if you can order their literature from your country, but I hope you can. Copy this link into your browser: https://ecomm.al-anon.org/ Also, there is a group here in the US called PAL (Parents of Addicted Loved Ones). Maybe you could contact them for materials to start a group or get encouragement from them. https://palgroup.org/about/the-pal-story/ You are not helpless. You have the most powerful place – the Father’s arms. That is where you run and that is where your strength and wisdom come from. I will be praying for you and your son. Blessings, Cecily
