Been on the forum for lots of years but not so much for about a year. My journey may have come to an end. After years of therapy for myself and years of group homes for my now 26 yr. old son(since age 12) myself and my therapist(who has met my son and even did therapy with him here and there) have come to realize he has some sort of brain disorder that will not change. He works(has held a job for 2 yrs.now) says he has a girlfriend. doing better now than before. Asked to meet me at therapists office abt. a month ago, said he is done with me, I am not his mother and he felt I didn't want him around(at 12 yrs.old) as I had 2 other children and a job, so I sent him away!! Wanted to be adopted. Therapist feels(and I do too) that he can not see that his behavior was out of control due to some kind of brain mix up. medications & therapy will not help as he has felt this way for 12 years now. He cannot see what really happened and feels it is all my fault. No way to fix it and getting older has not helped. No real diagnosis. Sometimes it will not get better, we must realize this and move on. But I can't and continue to see the therapist.
