Good Afternoon all- I am new to this and often don't go to sites like this. I don't know what because just typing what I am going through right now is very therapeutic but I am a married women of 16 years. To give you a little in site I suffer with Bi-polar disorder that has nearly destroyed the relationship between me and my husband. We are trying to work things out. We have always tried to keep what happensbetween us to ourselves. I dont feel kids should know those things.
So there is a mental history here which is part of my concern my son A ( I will just say A not the whole name) has been really doing badly in school. Grades have dropped. He has become very disrespectful. In that when he is told something he mouths off he was never this way he curses knowing I am in the room and the other day myself and my husband came home and he had pierced his own ear with NO PLAN KILLERS nothing he took a needle and alcohol and just did it no help. He has a very nasty attitude that we are trying to change who he is. This was a smart student. He is now getting low 70 average. I am also concerned because he was diagnosed with OCD so I am really sad, scared and afraid that I have past something down onto my son. I don't know if I back off and just tell him what I think is correct and why? Do I let him make some of his own decisions to compromise? My husband feels that he has this under control as a mom I am worried that my son will be another statistic and it scares me and makes me so depressed. Any idea's? Also I might add I have 4 kids a 15 years male, then the 14 year old that I am speaking of a 12 year old daughter and my little boy is 11. My hands are full I work full time. I am bi-polar and in treatment and really just feel stressed and sad most days that I failed. I was sick for many years did things that I just can't get into here and I Love my husband but my last that and my son. My other children are great thriving and me and my husband are both committed to making this work. I am just worried.Answer Question
