So to find out he’s not in a homeless shelter after all. He called me yesterday to tell me he’s in the hospital & he accepts the request of us just being friends. I still care about him, there’s only so much I can do. I feel really bad, the homeless shelters make him clean up in the morning & make him leave until it’s time to check back in at 7:30 pm. He’s out roaming the streets that whole time. I don’t think that’s suitable for recovery. He signed up for the homeless shelter, so hopefully he’ll be in there soon. I just don’t want him to stop taking his medication & have a relapse. He’s been taking his meds consistently for over 2 weeks already. I have to have time for myself too. I’m still in school getting my G.E.D., I have to look for work, and just time for self improvement. I love him & really care about him, there just needs to be structure & balance. I know a lot of people wouldn’t even consider being in my position. But what’s wrong with helping someone out? I’m 20, and he’s 22.
And another question. Does learning about spirituality & self improvement make a difference in recovery? Does anyone have any advice or experience?
