Ss12 is writing dark things
it's Bm week with the skids, and things have been pretty quiet at home. Bm and SO have been communcating about Ss. Bm took him to the doctors for a full physical and everything came back normal. At both houses, the computer history was checked and Bm went through Ss's phone. Everything seemed normal until SO found Ss' journal.
Bm got Sd and Ss into keeping a reflective journal, so they can have a safe place of their thoughts, find a place to vent, wrtie about their day, any lessons they learned. It's actually pretty neat and they respond well to it.
Ss left his here and SO found it in his room underneath the pillow. He did have some issues about going thorugh it, but went through it anyways. The entires dating for the last 2 week were dark.
"I was born alone, and I'll remain alone.... emptiness"
"People say that ending up alone is the worst. Being around people who make you feel alone is far worse that living alone"
"Physically I'm not alone, but mentally there isn't anyone around me at all"
and the one that really broke SO's heart:
"Those that "love" me only see me when I smile and laugh, but they don't see the meltdowns I have when I'm alone. I'm breaking in front of them and they don't even see me. If they could read my mind, they would be in tears. if I were to dissappear, would they even care?"
SO sent pictures to BM and they talked on the phone for a bit, and Bm has already made an appointment with a therapist for some time this week. We took the kids (sd and ss) for 2 weeks while Bm ent out of town to see her sick mother, so she offered to have them for another week to make it up to us, but SO now wants them to come for his week.
SO and Bm are both going to talk to Ss.
What should I do to help?
