I got married May 21 of last year. Both my husband and I have been married before and have children from before. I have full custody of my 8 yr old son and he has visitation with his 12 and 14 yr olds. My son was premature and now has issues ... ADHD big time. 2 years ago I had to put him on meds and he now takes Vyvanse 30 mg and Intuniv 1 mg. I have had to have the doses adjusted from time to time. Anyway my son has begun to steal and lie and hide his school work. Not to mention his recent outbursts of complete disrespect. My husbands children never acted this way so he is at a loss, and has been just staying away from home as much as he can... pretty much when my son is home and awake. Two weeks ago he told me he had actually planned on leaving me but decided not to.He even stopped his paycheck from going into our Joint account. Now that is constantly in the back of my mind ... He says he is not going to leave but how can I be sure? when he gets frustrated with my sons behavior he shuts me out, he gets real distant and moody. I love my husband to no end and would be completely devastated if he left. I am at my wits end with all this. Please don't get me wrong he is a good man and he genuinely loves my son, he just doesnt know how to handle him all the time.
