I am just beside myself. I am a single mom and what used to be a loving relationship with my son has turned into something I don't recognize. His perception of who I am is so distorted and he looks for every avenue to argue with me, hurt my feelings, and yell. I see a lot of anger in him. I really don't know how to deal with him any longer. I don't believe drugs or alcohol are involved. I have tried to have less contact with him to avoid arguments, but I never know what will set him off and then he blames me. He doesn't see his behavior or take any responsibility for it. I'm at my wits end. I find myself upset and crying after interactions with him. Any suggestions would be helpful on how to deal with this.

Most days I can hold it together, at least in front of people at work. Today I...
