So we will be getting SS for the weekend later today, and last night SS texts husband and sends him a link to a real knife that is a replica of a knife in one of his violent video games and he asked husband to buy the knife for him. It's a huge, wicked looking knife! husband told me he is not going to buy it for him because of his continued truancy from school. I asked, "and that is the only reason you are not going to buy the knife? Are you not at all concerned that he wants a weapon from his fantasy world of video games? husband said well yeah very nonchalantly. My SS has several mental illness diagnoses, he's been in the psychiatric ward, he's been violent, he's threatened to kill his mother, he doesn't go to school, he doesn't take his medications, he is not in therapy and he lives in a fantasy world of violent video games. And now he has asked for a knife! Correct me if I am wrong, but I see him asking his dad to buy him that knife as a HUGE red flag. It's hard to tell what may be going on in his mind, and I feel it's possible that the lines between fantasy and reality are starting to blur for him due to the fact that he wants a real life knife from one of those video games. What possible reason could he want for owning that knife? This greatly concerns me! And I am very scared about him coming here this weekend now, because husband will tell him this evening that he cannot have the knife, and SS doesn't react well to be told no about anything, especially something that he wants. Help!
