My teenage son of 16 has had his best friend over for the weekend. My son is very sensitive and going through that phase of everything being overwhelming, wrong clothes, wrong hair, everything magnified as an extreme, low self esteem and I am very concious of how to talk with him and help him through most problems. His friend I found out after his last two visits is taking antidepressants and has problems with behavioral issues. He is very sweet and is a good friend for my son, seems very balanced and appropriate. However, today we had an incident for the first time that I had to correct my son and his friend in borrowing and lending games, game systems, as his friend had already borrowed a game system and hasn't brought it back and wanted to borrow another. His 10 year old sister has my son's game system. I addressed the situation appropriately I thought, but the young man broke to tears when corrected, started breathing erradically and couldn't even communicate. He started writing notes to communicate with me saying he has an emotional overreaction disorder and can't cope with emotional situations due to his problems and the lack of control by his meds. Help, now I feel horrible. He never wants to go home from our house, at least, not up until now!!!! Doesn't ever want me to talk with his mother for any reason. Help, what's going on??????:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
