I don't know what to do. He is extremely difficult and was highly aggressive. Things are a lot better since we added Lithium to his chronic medication. We can live together with less distructive and aggressive behavior over very small things. Things get broken, thrown at me and he swears and calls me terrible things, this is when he is angry about something or if he wants something.
He can be very loving and is highly intelligent but did not finish school due to this behavior. I tried home schooling he refused. He is strong willed and blames me for everything. I just want to run away sometimes. He can't take his meds on his own, just does not remember or care. Fussy with food which I know is Aspergers thing, has no filter. He is kind. I have beautiful dog which is like his therapy dog. I just wish I could find a direction for him. I love him but it's very hard
