Worst day yet with my 15 year old. Called the police on him and he was taken to hospital for psychiatric evaluation. I'm relieved, but totally heartbroken. He had a backpack with alcohol, marijuana and coedine that I found and he flipped. I tried to take bag and he is stronger than me and got away. He ran and I called the police to get him. He was totally belligerent to them and I watched as they handcuffed him. He said he was going to kill himself and they had to call an ambulance. He has been struggling with anxiety and depression for many years and did have a recent inpatient stay that only seemed to make the drug use/behavior so much worse. He has been smoking marijuana to self-medicate, starting probably 2 years ago. We have been trying to get him help, but he is totally resistant and the "help" that is available isn't always very helpful. He sees nothing wrong with pot, cites all his "online research", tells us to get educated. He honestly thinks that he can get a medical card to get pot, says he knows people who do. I know that's a lie. When I was trying to get the bag from him yesterday I asked if the drugs were more important that his family, his health, his future. He said yes and he meant it. He mind is completely riddled and wrecked by drugs. Getting help that he needs is so hard. We are filing a Child Requiring Assistance application this week while he is in the hospital. I just don't know what to do, how to help him, what's going to happen. I am a mess, fighting with my husband, not sleeping, totally stressed and it is effecting everything in my life. I feel myself breaking. If anyone can help, I appreciate it.
