So, yesterday was Chef’s first day of visitation, and I showed up. First, there were about 30 minutes of check-in time. Then, we all watched a video about our changing bodies….just kidding! Just seeing if you guys were paying attention! It was about the rules of visiting a loved one in a facility like this one. It took about 45 minutes, but it basically boiled down to: “Don’t be douches by smuggling drugs in to your addicted love one who is in here who are trying to become well again.” Seemed a little like stating the obvious to me. Who’d do that??
Finally, I was able to actually see Chef. It took him less than 3 minutes to say the rudest crap. He accused me of having an affair, stealing stuff from his truck, and some other nonsense. I got up and walked out.
Now I understand the video!!! I know one addict that is a giant douche without his drug of choice! It was a waste of a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. But, Chef did learn that anything snotty said to me will instantly end the visit. Too bad he won’t get another shot at it. I’m not going back.
I’ve done all I can for this guy. I’m very peaceful about my part in trying to get him help. He’s on his own adventure now, and I’m happy to wipe the dust from my feet. In a way, I’m excited that this all is happening now instead of later. 2014 is going to be an awesome year!!!
