My 19 Yr Old Son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 3 1/2. When his Father & i divorced when he was 10 we separated the 2 boys. His father is Military and degraded him alot. He also had lived with his Nana when his Father was in Iraq and spoiled him. I did not have much of a relationship with my Son due to them not allowing us to have one & so he felt like I did not care about him. I recently had him move in with my Husband & I after not seeing him since he was 13. Due to No one knows how to deal with him due to his ADHD. I to also have ADHD and am having a really hard time with it!! At this moment we are in the progress of moving into a 2 Bdrm place but at this moment Our living Rm is his Bdrm. He is Severely addicted to video games & I mean he Lives, Breathes & Sleeps video games!!! He absolutely will not clean up after himself and is still like a child mentally. Between the video games and cartoons. I dont know quite how to deal with this situation mainly due to the fact he is not a child but I feel like he is the same little boy that went to go live with his dad but is worse now than he was when we separated. We have an appointment at Burrell Mental Health for him next month which is the facility that I go to so we can get counseling & get the right medications for him. If anyone has any good advice PLEASE feel free to hand it my way!! I feel like I am going crazy but refuse to give up on him like everyone else has. Thank You
