my son is 19. Two days ago I found a needle with cap on it. My son met up with an old friend he grew up with. I found out later he has been shooting up pills melted in a spoon drawn into a needle and shoot into their arms. My son started this about two weeks ago. Another friend told me thats a real friend to my son and me but they cant help him. Yesterday we were in line at a store he had been acting normal then while he was in line he handed me his money and pack of drinks and hurried out. I hurried and payed to get to him. He was red faced shaking all over, hot,cold,breathing hard I wanted to call 911 it just agitated him more he was hurting all over he couldnt stop shaking . I got him home it took a few min. but he made it inside went to his bed layed down covered up and I set by him. He shook, and was cold, hot, after shaking stoped he was very tired and thirsty he also had a very sudden fever as soon as shaking stoped. I wanted to call 911 he kept saying no. My son needs help dont know where to turn or anyone his age who could help. Since hes 19 I havnt much control no matter how hard I try. I dont want to loose him !View Thread
