Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that Steve fell apart on me this morning and I rang him a Doctor out to see him. The Doctor put him on Diasapam to calm him down. We had a shocking night, as I'm sure you're aware of if you read his last entry.

You all know that I,ve had my share of ups and downs but there's NOTHING so upsetting as hearing your own child crying in distress at the other end of the phone. It almost kills me to hear him.

He's taking time out from his journal just for a while. He needs to sort himself out first,can't keep going on the way he has been.

I'm very upset as i write this so I'm not saying too much more, except that he is in the very best hands he could be in. I love him so very much and am determined to help him through this. I f I just knew what was triggering things off.

Anyway, watch this space and I will let you all know how he's doing. You never know, he may pick himself up quicker than we expect.

Thank you all so very much for your support, he is a very lucky young man to have so many friends and admirer's.

Take care and I will post again tomorrow to let you know how he is.

Love and best Pat ( Steve's Mum ) x x

I'm so sorry about what you are going through -- there's nothing like your child being sick or in distress of any kind. I'm so glad he has you for his Mum, I know you'll take good care of him. Please keep us posted.
Hugs, Martha

I am coming to send you my best wishes as Guido's journal did mention your son's distress. It sounds terrible and a very challenging time for yourself, your son, and family; it is good to hear that Steve found some relief and is now in good hands. I know nothing about Steve's condition, but I am acquainted with very good therapists all over the country if you feel you need second advice.

I am sorry he has to go thru this...
you both are in my prayers.

We all love our Stevie! Since these 'spells' started I've been encoraging him to see a really good Dr.
Let him know we care & will be keeping him in our thoughts & prayers. When he's ready to start back up with his journal, we'll be here!
Much love to him, with lots of hugs.
TY for the update.

Best wishes to you and Stevie, I do hope he's feeling back to his normal self soon. He's lucky to have an amazing mother like you, and I'm sure he'll be back on his feet in no time. Until then, J~Land will be a little dull without him! Please send love and hugs his way, he'll be in my thoughts.

Have a good weekend and take care,

((((((Pat and Stevie)))))

Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers...
Hoping Stevie gets the best care available...and gets
back soon....a break from his journal will prolly do him some sorting everything out...and getting himself better!!

Can't wait for his return...let him know how much we care and are praying for him!

((((((big hugs)))))) to you Pat, you must need one as much as Stevie does at the moment, it's awful to worry about your grown children so much, the last two years with Danny have been a nightmare, so hugs from one worried mum to another, take care

Please let Ste know how many of us care and the degree to which we've become attached to him.  Praying these episodes cease, hope the valium helps.  xoxo CATHY

That young man of yours is very special indeed. I am so happy to have gotten to know Stevie and am hoping the doctors can get to the cause of what has been making him feel so badly. Please let him know that I'm thinking of him and looking forward to when he feels well enough to get back to his journal.

I'll be praying for you you've stated, it is very difficult for a mother to see her child in distress.

stevie is such a wonderful guy. I will be praying for him. I am happy that he is in good hands. I read his last entry and was just about crying. It tore me apart.

I read the update above and am glad someone is taking him seriously.  I would hate to have to watch as a mom and have no control over the situation to make it better for him.  Hope the meds help him to sleep and relax.
You get some sleep and rest too!
