I Didn’t Ask You To Do That!

This was Damien’s response this morning to something I said this morning. He was complaining about me searching his suitcase and me replying with how I can only do so much when it comes to helping him through school- namely taking him to the best doctors and getting him the right meds; and that he has to make an effort to apply himself. . .
I was a little taken aback by his response, I mean- I know he’s not mad about being an ADDer, and he wishes he wasn’t- but he was particularly vehement this time. Of course we both know what would happen if he wasn’t on meds- so I just said that one day when he moves out he can decide what to do about it, until then I am responsible and I decide. What was I supposed to say? Apologise for getting him diagnosed and then getting him medicated?

  1. Hi Angel, it sounds like you’re having a really tough time there. I only just read your previous post too so I’m going to make a general comment here… Don’t beat yourself up that he doesn’t tell you everything. It’s normal. In my humble opinion it is virtually impossible to be both the parent/disciplinarian, and the best buddy who gets to hear everything. It sounds like you’re doing a good job with him, in that you do talk. Hang in there.
    And btw you write a really good rant!
