I'm working to get him seen by a mental health team, but as yet we don't have that kind of support. First he has to submit to the evaluation. This will take place over a period of several weeks, five sessions in all. After this, they will come up with a Care Plan which will then be taken over by a team of professionals. Most likely, we will not have any real help in place for at least two to four months.
In the mean time, I think that I will go nuts! : )
You are in fact, right. The behaviour has escalated to the point of having to call the police. But what could you charge the kid with? I told him that if he tried to block me again that I would call them, and his reply was..."For what? Bugging you?"
There is a definite struggle for power, to be "on top". One therapist told me, that this often happens when the abuser (i.e. the father) leaves the home. Since I was so badly disrespected, he does not recognize my authority. To feel secure, he wants to be in charge... what do you think? Personally, I think that is a rather innocuous judgment of the situation, and that it is more of what you had remarked, that he is trying to control.
He is like this every day at some point. I wish I could step up the process somehow. I will put him back on his meds starting tomorrow. Thanks for your wisdom. I will also talk to our GP about the other meds you suggested.
For now I better get to bed. If you think of anything else, let me know.
