My son and I have had enough of my mother's verbal assaults, mild physical violence and now death threats, etc. she lives with us.

She told us we were lucky that she hasn't put anti-freeze yet in our drinks, because she has it in her car in her trunk, she is beyond reason and refuses to be treated or get help, she is currently being held on a Baker Act but my fear is her wrath when she comes home and that she will not continue care, I will not allow her to continue to live with us unless she is being treated by a doctor. I am beyond stressed I have no time for myself in the evenings as every night is a new battle it is like living with Jekyl & Hyde I have gained weight from the stress, ALOT of weight, I am not happy and this is not fair to my son or I. Any suggestions? I need to get POA on her also ASAP.

So far so good the meds are working and she is not refusing to take them, but she does demand I give her the bottle and her wallet back and I stood my ground and refused, she can not have her wallet she will just order QVC like crazy. Anyhow I am taking her to the doctor today, hoping that goes well, and they do need to increase her dosage.

The good thing is that if she acts up I will have an easier time getting the cops to baker act her again now that she was there 12 days.

We have to wait until almost the end of the day Monday to get the script for the patches ridiculous, they told her if she don't take the pills she will be back there so we are hoping that works, I will not deal with her crazy in my house, but I am worried how this weekend will go, I need a calm stress free weekend. UGH!!

Oh, Dancer....your son may be young, tall and strong....BUT...at 17....he's still a kid....don't put him in this possibly confrontational situation w/his own GM.....your loyalty should be to his safety and peace of mind, first......then, you deal w/Mom....and, frankly, it sounds like she needs a lot more time to prove she's both able and worthy "to come home".....

Good luck, Dancer...but I'll be totally honest here, I think you're making a huge mistake taking her back into your home.

I hope your son does not have to get physical with her,, that would be a whole different problem down the road. Good luck with the patches, and make sure you put them where she can't get at them

Oh yes you are right. I am hoping to curb that with the patches.

keep in mind, these mental issues seem to always find a way out. my opinion it comes out in 'i don't need these meds anymore'....and we see what comes of that

My son is 5'11" and my mom is 4'8" he is very strong, and a few weeks shy of 18, we are going to use patches to ensure she stays on meds, but this is a trial basis, if she acts up again I am sending her to a facility.

I'm rather shocked that you would accept her back into your home with children, when it has been demonstrated that you are not able to ensure that she stays medicated. If there is no reason to believe that has changed, without medicaiton, then I wouldn't think that it would happen magically. Very serious situation. I would get legal advice about my obligation to protect my children from known dangers.
