Not impressed I must admit but thats my son to a tee. Goes with the flow, expects things to bend the way he wants etc and will make zero effort to help himself.
We've spent over £500 on private consultant appointments to get him seen and presribed medication. Found out for the last 10 days hes "forgotten" to take it.
Hes almost 15 - I'm absolately bomping mad with him. Surely, at 14/15 he should be able to know the importance of it?
When you spent the money on the appointments did you spend the money to help him or to help yourself?
Sounds like he does not see any need to take it.
I am similar with my personal hygiene. I see some need for it and will make an effort e.g. if I am getting a lift somewhere and am going to be in the close proximity of others for long periods of time, but I "forget" to do it as you put it if I am not going to be seeing other people.
Another thing to bear in mind about medication is that most medication has side-effects and only the person taking the medication can decide whether the advantages of taking the medication outweigh the disadvantages - there can be exceptions if someone is extremely suicidal or lacks the capacity to make the decision but neither of these appear to apply to your son.
Taltunes - many thanks for that comment. Nice one.
Hes 14 and doesnt get it. I Hes smashed things up at home, hes struggling in school. Hes got a 4 year old sister who hes been violent with in the past. A mother who hes bigger than and has come close to being violent with.
Of course, I paid all that money out to get him to get some help purely for myself.
