Hello @Smile82 and @DOT2 


Welcome to the forums.


I hear both of you and I am sorry you are in the positions that you are.


I can't tell you what to do only you can make that difficult decision and then live with it. I care for my son and there are days I would run away never to return so I understand completely how difficult things can be. 


My advice if you stay...learn as much as you can about the conditions/s.

Ensure you pracrice self care, i.e. take time out for yourself, see a therapist, set boundaries. Communication is the key. Let them know your expectations, how you are feeling and tell them you expect the communication to be forthcoming in return. 


I should add no relationship is a walk in the park, mental illness just adds another dimension. It's not all bad, my boy is gifted in so many ways and quite possibly the kindest most gentle person I have the pleasure of calling my son.

I hope that one day someone loves my boy enough to stick it out with him.


P.S to tag someone just out @ in front of the members name.


Happy to answer my questions you might have, hugs to you both 🤗🤗
