From BAD to WORSE (long)

Recommended Posts

I don't have much of an update. I called the jail. The said that she will probably see the judge tomorrow. I was going to be leaving on Saturday night to go out of town, but I am changing my flight. I will be leaving first thing in the morning. I just need to get away and take care of my mental health. As of right now, there is nothing I can do to help my mom. I do have my entire family on board for an intervention, if the court does not order rehab. This has been going on for too long, and she really needs some help. My sister thinks that drug court will be the best thing for her. At this poing all I can do is wait to see what the judge says. I will be in Houston until Wednsday, and then I head to Seattle until the following Monday. I am so grateful that I had this trip plannned. Thanks for all your kind words. I don't know how much I will be on until I get back home, but I will make sure I keep you guys updated.

I got to Houston this morning. As of right now I am just waiting until my mom sees a judge. Pete knows some police officers that work for the city she was arrested in, so he is going to touch base with him today. Hopefully we will begin to piece this together. I'm not sure what will happen yet, but I know that I need to make the best of all of it. Hopefully this will be the rude awakening that helps her get clean. Thanks for all of your support. You are wonderful women, and I am so grateful to have you in my life, even if it is on-line.

Wow! Sorry to hear about all that. Sure is a lot to handle all at once.

 

As far as your guy seeing something... don't sweat it. Even if he did notice it the whole scenario does not compute. We have trouble putting 2 and 2 together sometimes.

 

As far as mom, keep your head up. I have a mother with problems like that also and I know what you are going through. It also seems like you have the right attitude about her getting better. You can be there to help her in some ways, but the responsibility is on her. There is nothing that you guys can say or do to make her get better.

 

Is this her first offense? If so, some probation and drug court type stuff would be most likely. Depends on what the actual charges are and how much the possession was.

 

I hope things get better for you and your family.

My mom is back home. I still do not know any of the details of what happened though. Everyone else is letting her go back to the way things were though. I just can't do that. I dont' think that will help. I told her that I love her and care about her, but until she gets help I can't let things be the way they were. It's so hard to explain it all. It's hard and emotional. It sucks!! I don't really know what is going to happen. I am just scared. I am glad I left town early, but it really sucks not having FI here. I won't see him for 10 days. Thanks again for your support!

I am waiting on a call from an rehab and intervention center. I figure at this point I am just guessing the best way to handle this, and talking to a professional will really help. I am so glad I am out of town. I wasn't supposed to be gone yet, and I would be a mess if I had stayed. My mom says she can't explain what happened because she is still trying to explain it to herself. I know not all of you are religious, but this is helping me grow closer to God. Thanks again for all of your support!

Brittney,

 

Sorry just catching up on your thread right now, what a rollercoaster of a week for you. I think getting out of town was a good idea. I also think speaking to someone who is trained in these sorts of situations will be really helpful for you.

Keep us updated and even though we are online we are all here for you.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
