more problems for Jo

The High school called Jo and told her they need to have a meeting at 11:00 tomorrow! Sounds serious! she thinks they might be kicking Cole out of school but she said she also thinks Cole will be jail time over this last incident. So sad this kid life is so messed up. He is a product of his parents drinking and then he turned to it to deal with them… He is so angry and so rough with Jo. I am afraid one day he is going to hurt her… she feel the same way that is why she wants the she shed.

Jo seemed so stressed tonight I am very very proud of her for not drinking! she has done so well! I really do not think she is an alcoholic… I think she just likes to get drunk but I feel she has no problem controlling it.

I am thinking about surprising jo with a much needed vacation… maybe a trip to CO or Florida?? just a short day day trip for us girls… just where she can unwind and relax

I know from personal experience Cole and Jo are both what is called Binge drinkers.  I know this because my brother-in-law and his idiot girl is that exactly..The girl friends think just because she drinks on the weekends she isn’t an alcoholic but she is.  And if Jo wants to be considered a non drinker she can’t be drinking sometimes or when life gets too hard.  I think Jo needs to get her son to stop the drinking and drugs and to not go to jail and get into rehab and if that means she can’t work then it would be worth it if he can just stop so he won’t end up dead…he is so young and has so much potential i would hate to see him throw his life away….

@jaythesmartone I agree but Jo will have no control over him going to jail. he has a tresspassing charge against him for the house and then 2 weeks later he gets another trespass and residential entry… so he broke into this house as well. he also has a DUI and smoking pot on his record so they will not be kind to him and if the HS kicks him out that will not be good because that would be his only thing keeping him from not going to jail is to finish school…

@kaliko

well he should have thought that before he got into trouble with the police…he did the crime and now he has to do the time.  But then Jo has to take some responsibility for her son.  I know I am sounding like a bitch but he is only 18 and if he gets kicked out of school he doesn’t graduate and he probably won’t go back and be a drop out.  Him being kicked out of high school has nothing to do with him going to jail….It sounds like he has missed a lot of school also….I hope you are not pissed at me or mad at me but it really hurts me to see you watching your best friend kill herself and her son…..

@jaythesmartone what do you think I could do? there is nothing. all I can do is tell her what I think. I have harped on her getting her son help for many many years now. this kids has been troubled his whole life. he has been suspended from school every single year from 1st grade… so he has always had behavior issues

@jaythesmartone she has tried and she has said all of that to him… but she cannot force an 18 yr old to go get help. he is an adult in the USA and only he can do it. I really cannot imagine what I would do. she seems to think maybe jail will get him off the booze and scare him into straightening up

@jaythesmartone we don’t understand because we do not have an addiction. usually when you kick them out they end up on the street stealing and selling drugs to survive so that always makes things far worse

@jaythesmartone  I agree… but she has tried everything… but kicking him out and all he would do is move into his suppliers home 🙁

I don’t know enough about Jo to say no she isn’t an alcoholic. But the signs all say she is. I’ve known alcoholics (myself included) who could go a long while without a drink but then, when they tip that bottle… that’s it for a while. She needs to escape her son and husband. Sad as that may be. They’ll drag her to her death if she stays.

Well, we are supposed to get a foot of snow tonight here in Colorado. I would choose warmth over cold, but that’s me.

How old is Cole? Is there any chance he’d benefit from a mentor at Big Brothers of America? The difference those folks have made in kids’ lives is priceless…
