I just joined up yesterday and thankfully several people have written to help me navigate this thing. My son is 22 and has Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and a low IQ. Until recently he had been living with his dad who pretty much let him do what he wanted. Eric, my son, has a car, quite a bit of spending money and no job. He's been indulged for so long that I know it will take alot of time to get him on a better path. He's extremely argumentative and stubborn on one hand but can be very thoughtful and kind on the other. For six weeks he and his dog have been living with me in my one room studio apartment. I've finally found a bigger place for us with two bedrooms so that we can close or slam our doors when we've had enough of each other. I really want our living arrangements to work out and for him to accept that I'm the mother in this situation and deserve respect and consideration the same as he does from me. So, any help or advice would be more than welcome. I have thought about finding a support group for myself so that I can learn how to cope with him.
