Writing as a pissed off BM right now.
My son (17) has battled with anxiety and depression since he was 14. There were lows where he mentioned he wanted to un alive himself. He has been on medications that have really made a difference. His father has always been against him being on meds. For some unknown reason he is very anti med and thinks fish oil fixes everything.
Anyway for the last 6 months my son has been off his meds. He is a f*cking roller coaster every day. He is mean, he is moody, he isn't himself at all. If he isn't hysterical he is sleeping. He refuses to take his meds because "dad doesn't think I need them".
He has also put on at least 50lbs because he wont stop eating. I feed my family a healthy dinner and when I wake up in the morning he has gone out and gotten fast food leaving wrappers everywhere. It's ridiculous! I've told him to stop, he won't. I don't know what to do. His dad won't support him getting the help he needs. He refuses to go to counseling. I'm just at a loss!
I just spent 20 mins on the phone with him while I'm at work trying to calm him down because he didn't get a job he wanted. He was SOBBING. We are talking an almost 6ft tall man child that weighs +250lbs sobbing like a baby! I can't cope with all of his drama all the time because he is refusing to do what he needs to stop feeling this way.
