I Wish You A Happy New Year

2018 was a very mixed year and I. Am looking forward to 2019. In 2018, I moved into a beautiful home I love but the joy was short lived. My son attempted suicide as a result of being overwhelmed by a friend who systematically hacked his electronics to the point that he became so paranoid he tried to drink himself to numb the pain of not knowing who was sabotaging his phone, computer, gaming systems. He lost a Year of college, assaulted me and my daughter in a drunken belief that I was somehow behind the hack and injured my daughter as she pulled him off me. She is still having soft tissue damage worked up in her right shoulder. They have not spoken since June.
Still, I am encouraged. He stopped drinking. Found a doctor who actually treated his chronic physical problems. Got a job. Re enrolled in school.
Someday his sister, battered by her ex bf, will be at a place she can speak to him They we鈥檙e pretty close before all the drama ensured
As for me. I found the strength to quit cigarettes for good after many years.


I think 2019 will be a very good year

Wow! I had no idea all that happened! Prayers for you honey. Looks like 2018 was a challenging year for many of us. Good on you for quitting smoking, that's a hard habit to break! I hope 2019 brings forgiveness, peace, and restoration for your family! 馃

[@185608,Foreverhis] I hope 2019 will be much better.

[@1433,Fungirlmmm] I know it will. Parts of 2018 were nightmarish and nothing in my background gave me the internal resources to cope I don鈥檛 know how I did it half the time, but when it involves your kids,,you find the way no matter how horrible you feel inside
