My 20 year old son was diagnosed as bipolar about 5 years ago. Since then we have been to several different dr’s and numerous different medications. Last year we put him in a residential treatment home for 4 months. He has stopped taking his meds and won’t go to any dr’s.
He is lazy and not motivated. He dropped out of school and has started a GED program multiple times and quite each time. He can’t hold a job. If there is trouble in the area he gravitates to it. He thinks there is nothing wrong with “Chillin” with his so-called friends. Which are all unemployed! I know there has been both drinking and drugs.
I would throw him out of the house but he seriously doesn’t have the faculties to care for himself and would probably be in jail or worse within 30 days. He thinks he is street wise and capable of being out there on his own but that is the farthest thing from the truth. Not to be mean but my son mentality is around that of a young child, not even a teenager.
There are other children in the house and they want him gone, they are tired of walking on egg shells around him not knowing what to expect from him. He is emotionally and financially draining us.
Thanks for listening and if you have any feedback that may help, I thank you for that too.
