My son drove me to my therapy appt today as I am still taking prednisone for my asthma and I am still quite shaky.  As always the session goes very well.  And right now I am in a good place. I think my a/d med has started to work. My younger son is doing very well right now.  He seems to be getting beyond his breakup and he is moving forward with his life.  He has lots of plans with friends and that keeps him busy and he says he feels he is moving away from the bad times and thinking very little about his ex.  He got a message from her, not by email but a Facebook message although he has not invited her in to his Facebook page.  It didn't say much just that she was thinking about him and hoping he was doing OK and that she still loved him.  He said he was not really upset about the message and is just pretty much ignoring it.  It sounds like she is still trying to get back into his life in any way she can.  And Isuppose she thought that was the least imposing way.  He refuses to answer her which is good.  And the further I get away from this whole thing the better I am doing.  Just wanted to post that things are  getting a bit better for me and I am hopeful they will continue.

Ditto.

It's really good to hear that you are starting to feel a bit more positive about things. It sounds like your son has a very good perspective on this all & is able to start moving on with his life. I am so happy for you. :)

hugs & happy thoughts,

good work from you both. some good mutual work is starting to show. for your son, he is showing some excellent maturity in not replying, he knows that she will keep trying, the good thing is that she will get the message that he, your son is not intersted. she will eventually get frustrated and stop. for you, i am happy that you are doing better. a journey begins with just one step. you are taking some excellent steps. stay positive, i feel positive from just reading your post!!! jamie

Hi Aurora,
 
I'm really glad you had a good session with your therapist, and that the AD meds are doing their stuff.  You must be so relieved.  I'm happy for you!  I think your son is doing great, and the way he is handing the situation is the kindest and smartest thing he could do for both himself and his ex.  They will both be able to move on more easily without the continued contact, IMO.  Thanks for letting us know about the improvements.....it's wonderful news.  :-)

I find it is very hard as a parent to "butt out" of our childrens business, especially when we have been there, done that, and know exactly what is going to happen.  He is doing the right thing by staying busy and doing things with his friends.  That in itself probably makes you feel better that he is acting mature.  I am glad your meds are starting to work, I have had that experience just recently myself and it does make it big difference.  I hope things continue to get much better for you.

Thanks Gem for your reply.  It always makes me feel better when someone takes the time to give me support.  I am learning to keep out of my son's business. It is getting much easier as I do better not being involved, thus feel less down.  And I am glad I have gone up on the a/d med as it seems to be helping.  I just have to take each day as it comes some good some not so good. But life always has its ups and downs. We just have to do the best we can for the moment.

There you go, that is the attitude!  I recently had a med increase myself and it has made all the difference in the world.  Depression/anxiety is so isolating and makes you feel so lonely, then you come to this forum and you see the people that feel just like you do and you know you are not alone.  Glad you are feeling better...keep that good attitude going, it goes along way to helping us feel better.
