Today I admitted my son to the hospital. Amazingly, he accepted it and was wonderful waiting (for 6 hours) to be admitted. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do and I cried all the time home. He just called me saying he wanted to come home; he was afraid and would I get him out tomorrow. I told him I would see what I could do, but I know he needs to stay in there for at least a few days. How do parents get through this. My heart is breaking...... :(

Oh Hallie, hugs and more hugs and some more hugs . I'm so sorry youre going through this but so grateful this young man has you for his mother.
Many hugs Hallie. You should talk to a hospital counselor about this, as people like your son, who are admitted, go through several stages (i.e. Fear, Anger, Hate) before they get to acceptance. You've made a decision to help your son. Now you need the follow-on information and tools to know what to expect.

Hugs ,Hugs and more Hugs to you Hallie i understand what your going through we had to do the same thing with my brother and i was sooo upset after i missed him so much you are doing the right thing and he is so blessed to have you as a mother:)
Huggz, Huggz, Huggz, Huggz, and even more Big Huggz Hallie.
I know this is hard..I had to do the same thing with Boogie and I may have to do it again at the end of this month. It is the hardest thing you will ever have to do..or at least it seems that way. But rest in the fact that he is now getting the help he desperately needs. Boogie too went through the fear, anger, hate and now acceptance. Although she really doesn't want to go back she knows that if she does she will get back on track and feel good about herself again.
Hon, I'm here if you need to talk. pm me and I will send you my yahoo id so we can pm together with voice if need be..or I can call you after 7 p.m. CDT (because I have unlimited long distance during that time)
Try to keep your chin up Hon..it will get better I promise.
Even more Hugggz
My thoughts are with you and your son. I'm sure he's angry and scared right now. Hopefully the hospital will begin to help him deal with his issues. When he calls just keep telling him you love him and you did this because you love him. He will in time realize that you did this to help him and it wasn't to punish him. If you didn't get him this help he could be calling you from worse places than the hospital.
