I’ve requested prayer for my family and we are all still in need of prayer very much; especially my parents and my son who is almost 35 years old. He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 14 years ago and has attempted suicide twice. Because of the pills he took during the attempts, he is unable to take oral medication as his liver was very much affected by the overdoses. He has been using marijuana by prescription (legal in California), and it has been helping him. About two weeks ago he lost his job and his home. Prior to that, he began to decompensate and now he is in a state of mania. He has been with my parents who live in the same town that he does. My parents are both in frail health and in their mid 80’s and his mood disorder was severely affecting them negatively. To make matters more complicated, my mother’s younger sister (80 years old) has been very ill and 2 days ago was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Not only have my parents been dealing with my son, but also with the news about my aunt. My husband took a mental health professional with him to my parents’ home today and they both talked with my son. In his current sate, he does not have insight and cannot be reasoned with. My husband explained that he needed to take his marijuana and “mellow out” as he was distressing Grandma and Grandpa with his state. As a result, he packed his belongings and left my parents’ home and I have no idea where he is. My heart is aching. I feel torn as I wanted him out of their home so he wouldn’t burden my parents and yet I want to know where he is and I don’t know. Please pray for him and for my parents, they feel very badly and guilty that he left, as if they were to blame. I am going to their home tomorrow and I’m hoping my son will return when I go so I may interact with him. He and I have always had a very good relationship through all these years, and I have been the only one that he would cooperate with. I am his “representative payee. I don’t know. I am feeling very desperate, worried, hurting, and tormented over all this. I am so appreciative for any prayer support that comes our way both for my parents and my son. Thank you, and I’m sorry this post is so long.
