My son has had diabetes since the age of 7 yrs old. He will turn 17 on Oct.31st and he refuses to take care of his health. And since he is not 18 well I get the blame for it. He is having other problems as well so I do have him in therapy. His dad and I are not together anymore he walked out on us back in 2006 and that seemed to really hurt my son as well. If I try to talk to Billy thats my son about taking his blood sugar or watching what he eats he gets very angry and starts hollering at me. I cant say anything to him unless he gets upset. He stays in his bedroom most of the time either talking on his phone or just play video games. I am lost because I dont know what to do. I have talked to his Diabetic doctor and he says I need to lay off but then he says since he is underage I could be taken to court so what do I do? I feel like I am in a hole with no where to turn. Can anybody help?
