Hi! A friend from another group I belong to referred me to here. It will take me some time to understand the format here....cause it is hard to teach this old dog new tricks...LOL. My husband and I have been experiencing for the last 6 months hell with our DS who is 22 yrs old, autistic, Bi Polar and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Our health is going down hill because of stress dealing with major behavioral outburst (meltdowns) and suicidal tendacies from our son. We have been in crisis situation since June of this year with the Agency for Persons with Disabilities to get my son help and to get him in a Group Home or Support Living facilitiy. I just do not know how much I can hang on before my cardiologist puts me on more pills or I die if a sudden heart attack. I love my son but this is getting too much for us to handle anymore. My husband has degenerative disk disease, high blood pressure and now is developing ulcers. Is there any relief in sight?
