I just told my 19 year old son to leave my home 2 days ago. He is bipolar, and is extremely manipulative. His condition causes anger, depression, irrational thinking, irregular sleep patterns, lack of empathy, grandiose feelings, etc. If he doesn't get his way, he will manipulate until he does. He has been on medication for 3 years, which has helped but he doesn't always take his medications like he should. Recently, he came home from college for the summer and treats my home like a crash pad. He has no respect for me or our rules. He verbally abuses me, his girlfriend, his sister, anyone he perceives as weak. He is disconnected from our family, rude, irresponsible, and entitled. Part of this is our fault, we have spoiled him because we knew very early on he was mentally ill and tried to over compensate for it, BIG MISTAKE. He is always saying horrible things to me, so this last time he did, I told him to leave. I can't take his verbal abuse anymore. He verbally abuses his friends, girlfriends, anyone he can't control. My heart is heavy, and it hurts so bad to be here. He has trouble keeping jobs, relationships. The last girlfriend he had was put into therapy after being emotionally abused by him after 2 years. I need peace and to keep my sanity, but how do you stay strong? This is extremely hard. Thank you for reading.
