Help... I'm new here and it seems to be helping so far, but instead of my boyfriend who is a recovering alcoholic just making it through day 13 with flying colors, it is my 16 yr old son spinning out of control. This morning we had the 1st physical fight and I made a heart wrentching decision to send him to live with my ex-husband, who is not even his biological father. Now I feel as if I have just signed his death wish. He's been battling depression for about 2 years now and in my current situation I too am fighting it. And my ex has been fighting depression for about 6 yrs. now but seems to be doing so much better. Did I do the right thing? He had such a look of devastation as he left, he kept hugging me as if to say he really didn't want to go. Am I the worst mother ever to not have the strength to hold on and do more? He was so angry he hit a box that if had not been in the way he would've put another hole in the wall. Then he screamed he hated me for leaving his Dad (ex that he's with) it scared me and hurt so much.
