I don't have a child coping with these issues but I am a therapist. All I can say is give yourself some breathing room and realize those well intentioned people who tell you if only you didn't use medication, if you only were stricter, if only you did this or that....then things will be better. You can call your local mental health center and ask for the local chapter of NAMI and call to see if there are support groups you are eligible to join. Of course I am a big believer in counseling. For both you, your child, and your immediate family. This isn't just something that your son is battling....it is something the entire family battles.
