Hi all , I am new here. Found this sight a few months ago and have been reading the posts. I have a 15.5 year old son adopted from Ukraine that has multiple diagnosis. Bipolar, substance abuse, odd,Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with cognitive impairment and learning handicap and assoc behavior disorder. He has been in counseling since age 6, we adopted him at 3.5 years old. Things have progressed from ADHD to the diagnosis we have today. Because he was on a binge of doing Benadry last fall, he wound up in the hospital with an Od twice. After the second OD, he went to a drug and aclohol rehab 3 hours away, only to do damage and runaway from there. He also ran away from school and home multiple times. We signed a petition to get him into the State Mental hospital and he was there from Feb until last Sunday. It has been such a long haul for all of us. As you all know this is. Guess I am looking for a shoulder or shoulders to hold me up. It was sooo very pleasant while he was gone and I feel quite guilty about being so happy. Now that he is back home, there is that gray cloud hanging, when is he going to go over the edge again. Just yestrday school called to let me know he ran away agian but this time they caught him, phew. He was only back to school two days . I know there will be set backs, I am just wondering how major they will be. He has court orders for one year to stay sober and straight and needs to follow rules. This kid has a hard time not getting into anything one week let alone one year. He is a very sweet kid, wants to do well, but his brain gets int the way of things and then he does stuff he regrets later. He is not violent. But he DOES NOT wnat to abide by rules of any kind. Which I think scares me the most. Without rules, one cannot operate. Well you can, but kind of sketchy I think. I am really nervous and scared for his and our family's future. I cannot for the life of me find programs Occupational Therapist (OT) get him into. The social workers seem to be a joke, as they cannot recommend anything as well. He is not interested in anything so, it is up to me, his mom, to "entertain" him day and night just to try and keep him out of mischief. Dad is busy with work and comes home late. Good dad and provider. I just kind of feel pressure to constantly entertain and son, looks bored and only lasts for about 15-30 minutes a task. This may be a lonnng summer. Thanks for llistenting to my ramble.
