I hope someone can help me in this forum as I am out of my witts with my son.
He is 36 years old and has just told me he is bipolar and schizophrenic. I am having a terrible time believing him. He has lied to me so many times in the past. He gets illness' and issues when he gets into trouble.
He was in a fight and went to jail and then he told them that he was hearing voices and they sent him to a Dr. and he said he has these illness, and of course they couldnt charge him because they said he wasnt able to control himself because of the illness.
He has had trouble since he was about
5 years old, at school and just bad behaviour
problems. I was a working mom so had to have him stay with my parents during the week for day care with his sister. He drove my mother crazy and after about
5 years of this he had to come and live with me and it got worse. He went to special behaviour
schools and had therapy during this time. Never any meds.
He has come back into my life at a time when I have just lost my beloved Mother and my dad is alone. He went to visit him and says he wants to spend time with him.
He has to get out of his place of residence (other grandmothers house) because of his behaviour
and lack of job. I have told him due to the recent loss of my my mom that he could not live with him because it would be too much for my father (80).
He says he understands but I am not sure of that.
I would like to get a report from the Dr. that diagnosed him if that is possible, does anyone know if this is possible.
I feel terrible about
feeling this because of course I love my son, but I dont know if I can take this stuff all of the time.
He takes advantage of my love until I get wise and tell him no more. How many more times do I take this and if he is sick where can I go to get help to help him.
Should I tell my son of my dis-belief? I want to be honest with him as I always have been and most times he doesnt like my honesty. He says he does but then doesnt bother with me for years after. Help help help
I added a title to your post
