Jan 13, 2017 · Conflicts between a mother and her 32-year old son who moved back home in Just Want to Talk

:0( Such a rough path you’ve been on. You must be an incredibly strong person to be still standing! I have experienced some of the same tragedies, my dad also died at age 45, my mother died at 31, when I was 7. My sister took her own life in 2000. My youngest daughter died 2 years ago of colon cancer, and my older daughter, as I’ve said earlier, is disabled. Two of my friends died in the last 2 years. I too had PTSD, depression etc but I had a great counselor who helped me through all of my past, using EMDR with regular counseling. You might want to check EMDR out, it was a lifesaver for me. I wish I had grandchildren, but that’s not in the cards for me unless I ‘adopt’ some kids who need a grandma! I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who supports me 100% of the time, and friends who really care. There are always blessings mixed in with the challenges of life! God bless you!

Thank you @marilyn1942, yes it is challenging to have an adult child living at home, and the disability adds another layer! My daughter is 42 years old, she has never lived on her own but she is engaged to a Canadian and will eventually move to Canada. I so want her to have a normal life! She has been through a lot in her life, and I’m happy that she’s found a soulmate. I moved from Southern California to Arizona a year ago, the Phoenix area. I have always lived far from my relatives so it wasn’t a big deal for me, except for friends, of course. I’m a Christian, so I found a church and started going right away. I have found many good friends there. Also, joining groups of interest to you is a great way to make friends. I go to Zumba classes. :0) It takes time, though, to build friendships. Hang in there!

Maybe it would help you to see a counselor for advice on how to deal with your son if you can’t go together. My daughter is mentally disabled and lives with me. It is a struggle st times because she wants to be an adult and make her own choices. But at the same time she wants/needs help with some things. The boundary line is constantly moving. It can be very frustrating and tiring. I see a counselor once a month and when I need to get advice I ask him. It helps to have an outside party give input. Good luck to you and I pray your son will find his way in life.
