Thank you thequest.
I have not seen him since his grandfather's funeral in October.
I have not spoken to him live since before Christmas.
I texted him that we had some family events coming up that we'd like to invite him to, and what was the best way to share the details? He doesn't answer his phone and the voicemail is always full. He replied e-mail. So I emailed all the details...first event is tonight.
Haven't heard from him, do not expect to see him.
He will have to figure out a way to climb out of the rabbit hole he has climbed into all by himself. I have learned that it is his right to live the way he wants to, and it is mine to decide what I can live with and what I will not put up with. I know that he loves us deeply, but he has a disease that prevents him from loving himself at the moment, and that is why he stays away.
None of this is easy, but life comes with great blessings and great challenges. It is part of the deal of being alive. I hope for the best. I love him and always will.
I am grateful for the wonderful community here.
