I am new here. My son was diagnosed about a year or so ago. He has been doing ok since they finally found a med that helps him. However, he is only 19 and has already lost two jobs. He called me today, after working for less than a week, part time, and was crying and told me the stress of it was so overwhelming to him that he was getting suicidal thoughts. I was able to calm him down and get him back on the right track and got him to see his therapist. I know this is a life long battle, but I plan to be by his side no matter what he needs.
I am beginning to think he might not be able to work because of his illness… I thank goodness I found this site and hope to spend more time around here!!
