Stepson has ADHD and making us all crazy.Submitted by stepmomblue on Tue, 07/31/2007 - 1:37pm
Ok, so here I go, this is my first time blogging. I have a 13yr old step son who has ADHD, depression, mood disorder, and a whole host of issues due to his biomom abusing him. He is driving the whole family crazy especially me, his is disrespectful of me and my 5yr old son from another marriage, lies, steels, hurts the family cat, and a complete pain in the butt when it comes to his father because we can never go out by ourselves without him intentionly pulling some crap to get our attention. My stepson has to be the center of everyones world, his is very rude to peers, hitting them, swearing, even threatened to kill them at school. He is currently in a day program for kids, on enough meds to take out an elephant and still is completely crazy as far as i'm concerned. I love his father my husband to death but can't take him any more. My husband is in a lot of deniel still about his son's condition and thinks I should just give him a break and trust him which I completely do no trust this child what so ever. We have currently taken a break from our relationship and his son couldn't be happier about it. I don't want a divorce but I am so totally fed up with this childs behavior that I just don't know what to do anymore. Even my stepson's therapist has said that he just goes through the motions at the day session and not putting in any real effort and until he does nothing really is going to change. I'm afraid for my son's saftey and mine. To be really frank about the matter I have come to resent this child and even hate him at times. His father put all his medical needs on me because he couldn't deal with it and now that he has to do it all by himself he is pissed at me and the worst part about it is that my husband won't see a counselor for his guilt and anger issues regarding his son having ADHD. I need some partical advise from anyone that has been in my situation or anything even close to it, I'm at my witts end.
