My 15 year old son has a lot going on. He is ADD, he suffers from depression, and he is bi-polar. All of which he gets from me (the guilt factor). Anyway since the summer things have gotten worse and worse. I have gotten to know the police more this year than I have ever wanted to. He had finally gotten to a point where he would sneek out of our house every night around 3 am to walk around or meet with friends. receintly he has been in 2 hospitals just 3 weeks apart. But now I have a camera set up in my house, I quit my job, and I dont sleep in our bed anymore, I sleep on the couch, so if either of the doors are opened, I am alerted, and we are thinking about an alarm system as well. With me not working things are tight to say the least. I put his meds in his mouth myself, and check it to make sure that he actually took it. I have even tried to give him a clean start by transferring him to a new school across town. I drive him every morning, and pick him up every afternoon. How do I get my piece of mind back, how do I not let this destroy my marriage, and make sure my son is safe at the same time? I am loosing my mind!
