My 21 yr old son cannot live with me cuz he is verbally abusive, breaks any rules I set, won't get a job, and won't stop doing pot (which he denies doing). Every time things don't go his way, he threatens suicide. He is now homeless, threatening suicide because he is out in the cold elements and can't sleep at night, he is hungry, dirty, and therefore says he cannot get a job. He says he has nowhere to go, no way to get out of his circumstances, and threatens to end it all, when he texts me. My heart is broken for him, but I cannot let him come back here. He won't get mental help, either, if he even needs it. I feel desperate for him because I put myself in his shoes and think of how horrible it would be to be homeless with no way out and the shelters are full. I just don't know what to do. Everyday I wonder if I will get a call that they have found his body and it was a suicide. I don't know what to do, yet I feel I must do something because if he does take his life, it will kill me, inside. Any comments would be so helpful! Thank you!
