I to have a soon to be 16 year old son with many mental issues. I have allowed his actions to go on. You take care of them when they are babies, and eventually one day they are supposed to step up right? Well here we are at 16. He has ADHD, anxiety, depression, ODD, and epilespy. My days consists of waking him up, making sure he gets out of the shower in a timely manner, fight with him to eat so he can take meds, get him off to school. Then worry and pray no issues at school. Next make sure he gets homework done. He frequently lies and says he has none. Then fight with him to eat dinner, eat snack, take meds, and get to bed. He sees a behavoir therepist. We are just starting this therapist, and have not really gotten anywhere. Meanwhile my anxiety grows. I am seeking help of a new counselor to help me to try to let go of some things and watch him fail. She suggested I see a psychiatrist and get some meds to help. I am exhausted. We have been trying to change schools to see if that helps, but so far no room, or denied due to behavoir. Running of of schools to try. Not sure I want to do the online school to add to my stress of parenting and teaching too. Just most resistance from him. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
