Near breakdown with 12 year old AS
Life has always been challenging with our AS, not least exclusion from mainstream aged 7. However his behaviour on sunday reached new levels of violence. We managed to get our AD (age 8 to our neighbour but he was threatening both me and husband with knife, climbed out his bedroom window and generally trying to destroy the house. Once calmed down he told me he wants to die. My husband thinks we cannot go on like this but want options do we have, We've been seeing services for years and he's now refusing to engage in any therapy. We're both exhausted, i'm on max dose anti depressants and it's destroying our marriage. Other moments can be fine! When the bad times come they are escalating beyond what we can manage.
