Hi @OutOfOptions thank you for keeping us updated with everything that's been going on for you.
I'm sorry to hear that you are going through so much with your step son. I can only imagine how awful that must be for you, especially after hearing that it has caused so many arguments between his dad and yourself. I was just wondering whether you had spoken to your step son about what's going on for him and why he might be turning to things like drugs and guns?
I am also wondering how you look after yourself when things get hard? As its important to remember that you are important too.
If you are up for a bit of reading, we do have a couple of articles that might be helpful on Teenagers and drugs and How to talk to your teenager about drugs. I also want to mention that I have had to edit your post a little to fit with our community guidelines.
We're all here for you and we hope you will continue to keep us updated.
