About eight or nine years ago my son had just been diagnosed with schizophrenia. They say he is schizoaffective, bi-polar type now. When he was first diagnosed he started with pot and then cocaine. Dealers were after him and long story short. I lost my house and ended up renting a room and him in another rented room. He has now started using again first pot and then now cocaine. I see him going down the same road. He owed money which I gave to him because it was his and now again more money which again I gave to him because he is paying it back. Now today he asked for more. I have put my foot down and he will not get a penny more. I warned him the last time I gave him money that it was the last time. I am at my wit’s end with the situation. He just refuses to stop and get help. The area he lives in does not help but with a felony drug record from 8 or 9 years ago it is hard to get a place for him. He also does not need to stay in the area during the day but he refuses to take a bus or go somewhere he just wants to hang around the area he lives in all day. The father is not in the picture washed his hands. Should I tell him what is going on?
Any suggestions?? I could use advise, maybe you have been through the same.
