Hi guys. I feel I tell my story in pieces on several threads! Anyone else do that??

If any of you have followed any of them, you know that both my son and my step son have had serious near fatal health conditions in the past. my son is doing well.

My step son - he had brain/ ear surgery 3 days after our honeymoon almost 3 years ago. he has not quit having ear infections since that time. His mother took him to MAYO clinic and he will have surgery on June 5. He was ready to start his freshman year in HS when this all started 3 years ago. Since then, he had to be held back last year, so 2 sophomore years. The principal told him about a month ago that school isn't for everyone, and basically told him he should just gor for his GED! that is the last thing we want for him!!! He struggles with ear pain, ear infections, and a lot of negativity, and has missed a lot of school. He admits that he could try harder, but still should not be encouraged to quit school! He lives with us, and when my husband went to work on that bleepity ranch, I know my step-son took that hard. Anyway, I picked him up a couple of wks ago because he got an MIP.

I am really worried about him, and have mentioned it to my husband. My step-son has alcoholism on both his dads side of the family, in 2 uncles and a grandpa, and on his mom's side. My husband gets sick of hearing it from me, about his family's alcoholism, but it is true. Tonight, as we were talking, have actually been talking this past wk - not arguing, but really talking, I suggested counseling for my step-son. I am just so worried about his future.

And I also don't want to neglect my son as my step-son has all these problems.

My husband said that he will talk to my step-sons mom, but warned me that if she knows the idea came from me, that there would be hell to pay! from her. I said, I don't care, I don't need any credit, I am just worried about him.

Anyway, any suggestions on how I can be a positive person to my step-son? I feel...I don't know what(good, but hate to say that, because the situation was not good), about the fact that he called ME when he got MIPPED. Yet, when I just try to call him, or talk to him, I feel he pushes away from me. I am afraid that he is stuffing his true feelings about all of this. He has had to deal with ALOT, and has missed out on most of his high school years already!!! Any suggestions?

Wow you are a strong women and you are in a really tough situation. I think you must take care of your son first and you are doing right by helping your step-son and offering suggestions. Not much you can do if his parents are not willing to help him out.

You are doing a wonderful job and I am proud of you and you deserve the very best in life.

Love, Z
