USBAIRDS needs our help with her son...
Hi guys let's see if anybody can help Linda with her problem with her son. I took this out of another thread so more people would see it.
I'm a mother of a 17 year old son. Oh God, I don't know where to start. He's recently been diagnosed with bi polar disorder. He seems to self medicate with weed, alcohol and in the past meth. He flat out refuses to get on any kind of drug treatment through the psychiatrist. He refuses to live at home in a warm, loving environment. He runs away as soon he becomes remotely uncomfortable. Just when I think things can't get any worse, they somehow do. He blames ME for EVERYTHING. Why, I have no clue. I'm not perfect but I am a great mother. I'm loving as well as someone who disciplines when needed. I've always been Zach's biggest cheerleader and always on his side. But, no matter what it is, I'm to blame some how, some way. My son has been arrested for burgulary already, we tried a specialty boarding school (b/4 we knew he was manic-depressive), He's been in drug rehab, etc. etc.. All in all we've been there to support him always and we've spent thousands and thousands of dollars and we're further behind than ever. Is there someone out there who can relate? HELP! I'm the one needing support now.
