I wanted to thank all of oyu who replied to my post, It was very helpful and it brought the huge weight on my shoulder I know in my head that I didnt do anything wrong to give this to him I know that this was something that neither me nor his father did to him,

But I cant help feeling like ther was something wrong with me to make him have these problems something that I passed down to him since I have so many issues myself.

I really dont have a whole lot of say in Jakobs life since I am not there with him I can give my opinion but only if I ask first and that doesnt mean that his dad and mom(jakob calls her mommy and I am mommy Erin) will take my opinion into consideration, we all get along great I have become very good friends with my ex's wife and my ex and I have been getting along great when I was just out there we all hung out and got along well even joking around.

But we all talked about jakob alot and what to do for him Jeremy wants to put him on meds his step mother doesnt I am partial to the meds because I am on them myself for depression and they have worked wonders.

I know this is all over the place and I am not sure I am making much sense my brain is fried today, plus I have so much running thru my head I could write for hours so I better end this now before I write all day to you all.

Thanks for the input any more would be greatly appreciated so please feel free to tell me anything that you all know about this I need to know as much as I can to make myself more educated so I can help my son.

Erin,

Everyone is taking the step in the right direction, making decisions together and also getting along. That is key in Jakobs treatment. This must be very hard for you, but as you can see, I'm sure that SM & EH, even if they differ in opinion, have Jakobs best interest at heart, as I know you do.

((((HUGS)))) for all you are enduring right now.

Erin,

I'm so glad all three of you take such an active role in Jacob's life and well being. Keep it up and keep the good relationship going with SM and ex. My son's dad has disappeared and stopped calling, no more child support, the whole big f-you to my poor little boy.

With that said, I have to point something out. I was really shocked when you wrote that you can only offer your opinion if you ask first. I'm presuming they must then say it is ok to offer your opinion? That just does not seem right. You should offer an opinion no matter what. You are his mother.

Take care.
