Hi all! I'm new here and I need advice desperately. Our son has been stealing large sums of money from us, and lying constantly. So far we've managed to get it all back before it left the house, but he denies doing it. We've tried all sorts of punishments and he's in therapy and all that but we just keep having the same issues over and over. Total he has snatched about 1200 dollars. We have even bought a safe to keep our wallets in. We know he's having problems at school, he was just suspended for a day this week for fighting. He is so angry and critical. His thinking is very negative and we also know he is hallucinating both auditory command and visual. Obviously, I made an appointment. with his neuropsychologist for Wed., but he is jekyll and hyde and I don't know what to do. He's been hospitalized 13 times already in his life-our journey with Childhood Onset Bipolar Disorder (COBP) began when he was 3. I just need some advice. His doctor is excellent, but does not offer emergency services, and we pay out of pocket because he is not on our insurance plan. I just want to scream!! I am trying to keep him stable, my daughter stable, and me stable...but I am falling apart. Please help.
