My 23 yr old son is very abusive to me and angry and smashes things up. He blames me and says he isnt going to stop because "its payback time". I have suffered with depression for a long time and have been sectioned by the mental health act a few times. His father and i got divorced when he was 16. He had the option to live with his father or me. He chose his father at first then 2 years ago came to live with me. I have another son aged 27 who is an alcoholic. He turned to alcohol when my 3rd son was killed aged 17. I am at my wits end and dont know what to do with my 23yr old i feel as though i can no longer live in the same house as him. He says the most hurtful things to me. It has come to a point where i dont want to wake up in a morning because i dont know what mood he will be in. He wants for nothing he doesnt work at the moment. I suggested he might be depressed but he wont go to see the doc. How can i help him if he wont help himself. I am so scared what will happen next. Please help??
He says hes had a hard life. I think the payback is because i was mostly depressed as he was growing up. His father spoilt him and gave him what he wanted all the time. There were a lot of family issues as he grew up but i tried my hardest to protect him. Its a difficult one as i would really like to ask him to leave but he has nowhere to go but on the other hand i cant take anymore. i sit in my bedroom while he is downstairs watching tv. He just says he hasnt got a life but i cant give him that. He says hes ready to kill someone and is very angry.
