Re: Angry Son
Hi - I have an 18 year old son and while he is not on medication (his choice) he is also ADHD, is caring, thoughtful and helpful. He was angry most of his high school years and I could not understand why. He told me this past summer that he was going to figure it all out and he did. He told me he never addressed his feelings even though we had taken him to counselors his heart was full of hurt, unforgiveness and anger. We had some consecutive tragedies in our family and he felt like he needed to be strong for me and my husband so that we had some normalcy in our lives and we attempted to do the same for him! He is at college now and four hours from us and texts and calls and seems to have acclimated well. In an attempt to shelter him, I encouraged activity and sports and he kept busy but never dealt with his feelings because I did not deal with mine. This caused much anxiety for all of us. Not sure if any of this applies...good luck to you.
