I have decided to quit giving our son help. He is going on 50 years old and has always been a loner, can't hold a job (says he can't work with people), is irritable at times, lashes out at me (his mother), lives in an unfinished basement (of a friend), takes the food, money, phone cards, etc. from us promising a job is in the works. I know that I have enabled him because he always threatend suicide and I guess I felt sorry that he never made a life for himself. Guess I felt it was partly my fault for not getting him help (actually this didn't show up until he was of age). I don't know if he is bi-polar and I pray I am doing the right thing by cutting him off (I am afraid of what's going to happen to him). We are in our 70's and can't afford to keep helping him. Any encouragement out there? Views?
