... but I love it just the same.

Where else can you come out and be so vulnerable and say whatever you are feeling at the moment, and feel so comforted knowing that so many others are out there watching out for you. Nowhere in my book.

Just wanted to say thanks again all! You're a great group!

God Bless You all,

I couldnt agree more. I just discovered this site, and it is already helping me so much. It is so good to be able to be completely honest about what I feel, and to have people that support me. Also reading other posts I read things I feel too and know I am not alone in those feelings.

Before I found this site, I was addicted to playing dominoes. I was using that activity to escape from thinking about my problems. Now I can't wait to get on here and see what the hot topic of the day is. Even though my problem with letting go of my adult son is different from the relationships between spouses, girlfriends/boyfriends, there are still lessons to be learned in dealing with dysfunctional relationships -- not matter who they involve. I agree. This site has helped me tremendously in the last couple of weeks. I am staying strong in my resolve not to give in to my son. I know it's best for him and me. Thanks to all of you for being there. PC

I am still new on this site. I can honestly see/say that I have changed a lot (for the better), during my short sojourn. I do love it. I have learned a lot from these precious people God has put in my path. Your wisdom, fun, refferals, books,feedback, .....are awesome!!!

I love you all and God bless us all!

paddycake - when I read your comment, I just had to respond. I too, am having a difficult time letting go of my son. He is only 16. The problem is that he is changing so fast but I am standing still. We were so close but now his friends (and now a girlfriend) are his main priorities. I hope you will write a thread on this issue. I would like to find out more about your situation. Thanks.

YF, My letting go involves a 30-year-old son who has been (may still be) addicted to drugs and alcohol. It's a long story that I won't burden you with here, but a few weeks ago, I drew a line in the sand and STOPPED enabling him. I have picked him up out of his own problems for the last time. He has never been self-sufficient and has been manipulating me since his high school days. I've provided cars, money, etc. for too long. I would suggest to you that the most important trait you can instill in a high school boy is that of taking responsibility for his own actions. Don't start paying speeding tickets, buying all the car insurance, etc. and helping him to avoid ownership for his problems. Believe me, they only get bigger and more involved as time goes by. it's understandable that you feel close to him and it hurts as you see him pulling away. That's a good and natural thing, and it's only natural that he is preparing mentally to leave home and continue the process of becoming a young man. You need to guide him, be there for him emotionally, while at the same time letting him go to develop self-sufficiency. My letting go problems are the result of TOO many years of picking him up and dusting him off after he has created his own mess. I've paid for hot checks, overdue rent, all kinds of legal problems, etc. This is not healthy. I know it now. I just somehow got caught up in his day-to-day issues and never separated myself from them. 30 years is tooooo long. With God's help, I'm now letting him work out his issues by himself. Good luck with your letting go. Right now you are in a healthy state of letting go. Stay that way.

I love this site too. I don't get on very often, because when I do it sucks up my whole day reading threads! Not very good for my job.

It's a wasted day at work. Hope the boss isn't ready this. 😉

My hubby says I'm addicted to this site. Who knows..... At least I know my "virtual world and virtual friends" are here for me. Thanks virtual guys. :).

Was that sarcastic enough? To bad he'll not see this one.

...no it's not; I can quit any time I want. It's just another lifestyle choice, besides I'm noty hurting anyone.

Anyone remember the guy in "Figght Club" who got addicted to support groups?

I wonder if there is a 12-step program for online support site addicts?

WD,

You say either(eether) and I say either(ayther), You say neither and I say neither (ny-ther)
Either, either Neither, neither, Let's call the whole thing off.

You like potato and I like potahto, You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto, Let's call the whole thing off

But oh, if we call the whole thing off Then we must part
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart

So if you like pajamas and I like pyjahmas, I'll wear pajamas and give up pyajahmas

For we know we need each other
So we better call the calling off off
Let's call the whole thing off.

LOL
