My son will not let me help him. He has not been to school in 2 weeks. He won't get therapy or take medication for depression. He has an explosive temper and dropped all his ambitions for college. He is a total slob and turned my home into a place that looks like a hoarder lives here. He rejects any attempt by me to have a reasonable conversation with him. He claims he can no longer feel his emotions. He has created a toxic environment for he and I to live in. I am disabled and he will no longer help me with anything. He feels cheated and has dropped his connection to God. He stays out all hours and then won't get up and go to school. I am at a loss as how to help him. He seems determined to destroy his life and our relationship. We used to be very close. His favorite retort is "I don't care." I don't want to control him, I want to help and protect him. What can I do? I don't know where to turn. I am praying, but he has been like this for two years.
