Prayers for his mental and physical health.
I left additional info on your My Page.
Thank you for all that you do! I appreciate you!!
Praying for you and your son....
Can you give us an update on your SR?
We talked to him on the morning of the 23rd, Saturday. He again called crying, could hardly catch his breath. Still said he had not eaten or drank anything or he just throws it back up, he hadn't slept this was his 5th-6th day this had been going on!!! He did say that they told him he would be moving on Monday..... Today, is Monday and I have heard NOTHING!! I have been so SO SO worried! I have tried to call every number I can find!!! I called his recruiter letting her know that he hadn't slept, ate or drank. All she would do is assure me that he is getting medical care if he needs it. My son on the call that morning told us that he tried to tell them that he might have some anxiety because his mother does. He said they just yelled at me mom and told me no the hell you dont have it just because your mother does!!!! This whole experience for me is overwhelming! It is breaking my heart in half! He is hurting so much, and there is nothing I can do............but pray!!! and cry, and cry, and wish he hadn't been so brave to even try this only to be punished when he is down and needs medical attention... I am so sorry ladies, I am having a very rough day!! :(
You need to pull it together for HIS sake. It appears clear that he and the military were not a good fit. I hope they separate him quickly so he can be home. However, please keep in mind that the separation process will take time. He is NOT being punished while he is being separated. There are procedures that must be followed. His enlistment process was not accomplished overnight. He is being care for medically. The Navy has top notch physicians. Your son is an adult, he will be treated like an adult. His medical condition (anything else) will not be disclosed to you, if you ask. During his separation process, he will need you to be strong and rational. It will not help him if you are in a state of panic. Could you ask for more help for his father? His grandfather? Take a few deep breaths. Your son will be home soon. Good luck to you and him in the future. Please remind him keep focusing on the future. He now knows the things that are important in his life - having his family nearby. Many do go in a tailspin once they get home. Keep him busy. Start Plan B, or C.
Thank you Bunker QB!
Very well said. I have pulled it together some since last night. I have said a lot of prayers & have put my faith in God that he is helping my son through this. I said a prayer this morning that God just let the Navy know that he needs to contact his family to set their mind at ease. Hopefully today at some point he will be in contact, this would make us all feel better. His father is doing worse then me. I am trying to settle my husband down, & this is usually so much the other way around. I am really trying to be patient.
I will continue to pray, and keep the faith that all is OK with my son. I just wish they hadn't let him call in such distress, then nothing for so long. But I am going to continue to stay strong for him. I will continue to write every day, as this does help me cope. Thank you so much for your kind words, they do help! ;)
I will be getting him in to a counseling appointment as soon as he gets home, and then start whatever he wants to do in life. He mentioned wanting to start to be a State Trooper! Thank you so much for the talk....;)
