I have a 30yr old son who lives with me because he cannot afford to live independently. He manages to work full time despite episodes of severe depression. He avoids family, spent Christmas two days in his room and avoids any conversation with me. I feel he is not managing his bp but when I ask how I can support him he always says he is OK. He has gained a lot of weight and eats only junk foods. Although his income is reasonable he contributes nothing to the household, has credit card debts, his car is unregistered, his license has lapsed and he refuses to pay it. As a mother I worry about the legal consequences. I dont know if this is typical of people with bp. He tells me his behaviour is none of my business. I am scared to be too assertive as I dont want to make life more difficult for him. At times I feel I am enabling him by not expecting him to pay his debts etc. Any advice would be welcome.
