My son is HIV positive.
      08/16/13 03:38 AM

My son has been HIV positive since 2007. before his diagnosis, he got good grades, and worked. It seems as though his life has stopped. Since then he has dropped out of college twice and quit two jobs. He says he is always tired and that school is not for everyone but has energy to smoke pot and hang out on social dates with many different men and on the phone. I tell him often if he focused more on his health, a career, a training program, a job, the way he does his weed habit and boys, perhaps he can invest in a life that will invest in him. I do not know what is going on with him and I cant seem to reach him. He is 26 years old and at times, he cries and says "Mom I am almost 30 and I have nothing to show for my life" when I give him advice, he doesnt take it. I do not know how to help him. I am frustrated. He recently started seeing a therapist but I do not understand why he does not want to do anything with his life but smoke weed and go on dates with boys/men. Help!!
