Hi everyone I am new on here and would like to share. I have a son who has been in and out of jail since he was 16..he is now 35 and recently arrested again. I have lost family and relationships trying to help him. He has a daughter who has been living with me since she was 3 and now is 11. I am a single grand mother. He has a mental illness and is receiving a benefit from the government. He is on drugs not sure what kind but has symptoms of Schitsofrenia but not sure if it is the result of the drugs. Can't seem to get any help as he is in and out of jail and the judge doesn't seem to recognize that he should be in a institution and assessed instead of jail. I feel guilty and cry every night for him as not sure if he thinks anything is wrong for him. He has had lots of chances to get help but I can't make him. I feel so sorry for him but shouldn't he know what is right from wrong? The system has failed him and don't know what else I can do as he chooses this lifestyle.
