Rain, I am so sorry you're having to face this. I had close friends that have faced similar situations and a cousin who is currently going to spend the next 20 years of his life in prison. His family still suffers, but I promise you that it does get better. It takes a while, and it's never the same, but it does get better. Just give yourself time and forgiveness. You and your family are in my prayers.

Honey - I don't even know where to begin. I don't know what you're feeling. Though my brother has been in and out of jail his entire life - all I ever wanted was for him to stay there. I cannot imagine having this happen to your child. It sounds to me like your son just made a few drug-fueled mistakes. With treatment, and incarceration in the right facility, he can come out of all this with a real future. I guess the key is the facility. You will want something geared more towards rehabilitation. Can that become part of the deal the lawyers will work out? Or am I watching too much TV? I wish I could make you feel better, my dear. Why does life always have to be hard? Why in hell can’t good people catch a break once in a while? For what its worth – I will keep you and your son in my prayers.

I'm sorry things are gong so pear-shaped for your family right now. I won't even pretend to know what you're going through. All I can say is; hang in there and try not to stress too much about things that are out of your control (I know thats easier said than done).

I am glad you got through the day pretty well. I imagine it is tough to deal with a chil in trouble with the law.
If you can get through this, you are stronger than you give yourself credit for.
I too feel linke locking myself in my room and NEVER coming out.
Please take care

"To be honest, I feel like I keep stepping into a elevator and the fucking floor keeps dropping out from under me." What a totally accurate description of the whole situation. I'm praying for you kiddo. My Josh has a first hearing tomorrow. It's a scary, scary place to be, especially when there's no way I can get down there to be there to "support" him. Hang in there.

I'm pretty new to your blog so I don't know all of the details, but it sounds like you should definitely call your pdoc as soon as you can. Good luck.

What a load you are carrying Rain. I'm so sorry for you and you're family. I can only do my best to send you the most sincerest wishes from this side of the globe. I hope that in some small way you know that people around you care how you ride that elevator.

First time visitor to your site, I surfed in through BlogExplosion and got stuck. Completely stuck.
I feel for you Rain, and think it's great that you are able to verbalize and intellectualize like this - it must somehow be a release to be able to vent?
Anyway, I'm not a believer so you're not in my prayers, but I'm sending you a whole bunch of sttrength "through the wire"
