I know there is already a thread with a similar title, but I’m not bumping that one because the context is different.
This seems to be becoming a harder issue for me as my son continues to exclude me from any type of communication. The “ghosting” is taking a real toll on my mental health.
My son’s first break happened during my divorce and no matter what anybody says, I cannot stop blaming myself for what happened to him. He suffered significant loss during the process even though I was still in his life and when he did have his first and subsequent breaks, I was the only person in contact with him. We went through everything together and when it was all over, I think we just couldn’t be around each other. So much had happened and we were both left with trauma (even more for him). His experimentation with synthetic pot and shrooms may have contributed and it could have just been a perfect storm, but the guilt is so overwhelming sometimes, I can hardly stand it.
Anyone relate? My daughter coped with it all just fine and is doing very well. I just want that kid back who used to sit in the passenger, talk my ear off and make me laugh. I miss him so much…
