He is very abusive and seems to like to torment me. He is angry, negative, and critical. He curses and has threatened me and laid hands on me before. He is now bigger than me and loves to puff up his chest and challenge me. I think he has a mood disorder, like bi-polar, but when I took him to the psychiatrist he only diagnosed him with depression. I feel there's a whole lot more going on than that, obviously. He prescribed him prozac, but I have not given him that because I was once on prozac years ago briefly and had a bad experience with it. His behavior is escalating, and I know it is going to get worse. He routinely breaks things, smashes walls, and attacks his sister (although she provokes it, and attacks him back). I also have had him on 2 different ADD meds and both had bad reactions. My life with him is out of control, and I honestly don't know what to do for him. I used to think he was hypoglycemic because hunger seemed to affect him, and I was also thinking of sending him to military school or wilderness camp, or outward bound for the summer, but I'm really confused....PLEASE HELP!!
