I feel some relief having found this site, I will have to read it while the kids sleep as that is the only time I have. I am raising my grandchildren and 2 of them have mental health issues. I am struggling and its a long story, the 8 year old is Bipolar, PTSD, ADHD, ODD, RAD, encropresis, and developmental delays. Life with him is hell. The 10 year old has failure to thrive and will be getting a feeding tube soon, weighs 50 pounds, refuses to eat, has PTSD, ADHS, and ODD. I need help, I feel like the school is my enemy, always reporting us to DCS, the psychiatrist doesn’t seem to understand the stress the family is under, the daily pooping and peeing in his pants, the screaming, swearing, yelling, threats. I video tape most things to keep me safe. I am at wits end.
