I have a 16 year old son that is bi=polar and ADHD. I divorced his father when he was 8, because he too is bipolar. At the time, I did not know this.All I knew was that he was miserable, hateful and made everyone in the house unhappy. My son was diagnosed when he was 10 and he has tried all kinds of medicines, doctors, and therapists. Risperdal helped alot, but now he refuses to take any meds. Since he is 16, it is impossible for me to make him take them. He is moody, disrespectful, and hard to be around. I hate to admit this, but most days I can't stand my own child. He is failing school, and wants to just get his GED. I refuse to let him drop out of school, I am at my wits end. He does not think that he has a problem, he says that I am his problem. (I wish they had meds for ME !) His Father cannot keep a job, a place to live, or a relationship. My son won't have anything to do with him because of this, I have tried to explain to him, that this is the same path that he is on, if he does not do something to change it. Any suggestions ? He won't go to any doctors, he just wants to get out of my house and on his own. Of course, he has no job, car, or money. Help!!!!
