I feel like the worst mom EVER! He kept saying things like, "I dont want to change who I am, I like myself the way I am" UGGGGHHHHH, the guilt. Also, " I will choke and die"."Why are you doing this to me?","I will study harder""I am ok, I don't need medicine".
I told him if he would not take the medicine, then we would have to improve his diet, remove/reduce TV and video games, and see his therapist more often. He yelled at me, "WHY"
I dont want to give him the meds, but it is obvious he needs the help. I have two teachers, two doctors , and a therapist who all agree it NEEDS to be in his life.
How do you explain this?He is scared to death that he will either choke and die, or never be the same again. I feel like I have scared him for life.
