I don't think I can take much more. My difficult child will not even discuss getting a job. I don't want to kick him out because he doesn't seem like he's even in his right mind. He's bipolar, but does that make him crazy? He goes from goofy, silly (like a five year old), impulsive, loud, (almost drunk-like) to REALLY angry, to so depressed he won't talk or do much of anything. He just turned 18 and does not want to go grow up. It's almost like the thought of it throws him into a state of panic. He is still in high school, being forced to go by the judge. I don't think he will ever graduate because we are on our 5th or 6th school. He keeps quitting and never goes anyway. He does have an IEP, but that does not matter to him. He won't work or even look for a job. Since he's 18 I can't send him away against his will, but what about some sort of residential living? I hate to say this or even think it, but I'm afraid of him. He has never hurt me or anyone else, but when he gets manic I get really scared. I feel like he's a ticking time bomb.
