my wife will soon get guardianship of her son. He lives with us he is 31, paranoid sz. She tells him " you are going to go into group therapy and talk with people that have the same problem you do" “I am going to make you go see someone, you have to talk to someone about your problem”
OK, I am not trying to be negative, just realistic. His response to this is always NO WAY…I DONT HAVE A PROBLEM. I don’t try to sway him either way. I just keep my mouth shut when it comes to this. I don’t offer my opinion to my wife. I think she is going to be disappointed when she gets guardianship and then she can’t get him to go to any therapy. She has even told him " I am going to get the courts to order you to go"
right now his behavior is very disruptive. He is up all night creating disturbances. Slamming doors, playing video games loud, playing music loud, coming up and down the steps all night long. He says awake for 24-30 hour stretches.
not sure how to handle this. I personally cannot put up with this behavior. I am truly concerned it will ruin our marriage.
I am willing to be his co-caregiver but not at the expense of what I think is allowable behavior. I see it destroying my wife and I feel like I can’t say anything.
