Back in July, in the wake of my son’s TBI, I thought it would be a good idea to get the pistol out of my son’s house. I was concerned over his mental health. His wife, now estranged, took it out of the house.

Well, he is furious at this action and my part in it. He has been verbally attacking me, via texts, for the past day. I asked his forgiveness, for my poor judgement.

I’ve damaged the relationship, but, he’s my child. I sensed danger and directed the action to remove the weapon. Maybe I shouldn’t have. If he never speaks to me again, then so be it.
