I have a recurring nightmare that I come upon an accident and although I know CPR, I can’t remember how to do anything. Everyone is looking at me to save the person, if I can just remember how. It’s easy, why can’t I remember? It’s a debilitating dream that seems to indicate my real life turmoil. I feel the same way in my waking life as I watch my son. I know he needs help and I believe that if I knew what to do I could assist him. Watching him suffer and not knowing what to do is killing me. I am his parent and I should know what to do for my son, but I don’t know where to start. The reality is, we’re both lost.

Hold On To The Life Preserver
When a person is drowning, they are doing everything they can just to keep their head above water. When a life preserver is thrown to them, the only thing that matters is holding on. Getting to safety only needs to be taken one step at a time. Surviving is a big step and precedes recovery. You can learn skills and you can find ways to support your son or daughter. Without the proper tools and knowledge, no one can know exactly what to do. If you need advice on ways to support your child, please contact C.A.R.E. immediately and speak to a professional. We are experts in bringing families together. For immediate help call 866-492-9215.
