My 9 year old son died of rabies in 1967, I was divorced by 1970, ex-husband disappears and left me with 4 other children and no child support. I got involved in hippie lifestyle, not drugs but sexual promiscuity, and no longer took the careful care of my kids I did before. Consequently now I have 3 wonderful responsible adult children, and one 52 year old alcoholic son living in my garage. I am overworked at age 77 and do not know what to do about my disabled alcoholic son, and cry daily over the recent death of my Service Dog and also my son so long ago. Is anyone else grappling with these issues?
