    marykay223 There has to be help

    My 23 year old son has issues that have been worsening and worsening. I had to remove him from the health insurance due to miss using the medications. He has repeatedly threatened me with all sort of issues that are not true. I have had to unplug my phone and put my cell phone on silent so that I don't have to listen to his ranting and raving. He needs to be in a long term facility and I have written 100s of letters to Dr Phil but have not gotten a response. My friends are stating that I need to file harrassment charges on him and maybe that would make it stop. I don't think so. I am at a complete loss of what to do. I have a therapist that states - "he will never be normal like other young adults" and "that he will always find someone to take care of him." When he gets on these tangents - I have started to just keep the issues to myself, because I don't want my friends having to deal with this. He needs to be in a long term facility that he will not be able to AMA himself. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the board, MaryKay!

    You found a wonderful, soft place to land. Please let me help you navigate this site.

    Evidently, one of our moderators saw that you had posted in a thread, and left you a welcome in our General Forum. You are currently in our Healthful Living forum. Which is fine, we love to see you here as well ;)

    I would go ahead and repost this in the General Forum. First, I would go to the top of the screen, and click "user CP" to create a signature for yourself. It will help us get to know you and your son. Please include your son's age and any diagnosis's he may have. Also if he is on any medication.

    There are many wise, caring moms on the site who will be along to help. You will get a much better response in the general forum, however. Don't be discouraged if you don't get a lot of responses today, as weekends are a bit slow.

    Welcome to our little corner of the world. Glad you found us; sorry you had to.
