Recently my adult son came to live with me. I need to give a little background as to understand the severity of his deep rooted issues. I apologize in advance if this triggers anything in anyone.....He has had a very turbulent past since childhood due to his narcissist father gaining custody of him when he was small to use as a pawn for monetary gain....I had to pay child support. The manner in which he gained custody was heartbreaking.....he was pretty much isolated from me and according to what my son has told me, he pretty much grew up in the street....neighbor to neighbor because his dad would tell him to go away and not bother him. Anyhow....you get the gist.
Fast forward 20 years....he has come to live with me after a drug overdose, so I’m really trying to make this whole dynamic work, his dad didn’t even show concern when he found out about the overdose so if feel that I am his only hope, but, whenever my son gets extremely agitated he will set off my weather radio and the lights dim or flicker. He sets off the fax machine as well....kinda chirps like when lightning strikes close by.
This is very concerning to me since I soak up energy so easily. I have been hyper vigilant on protecting myself, however, on occasion it is extremely hard. He has told me that this happens to him on a regular basis.
I have observed that when he had to go to his dad’s house to get some of his belongings, it happened afterward, then also after dealing with his ex. I have been discussing with him that he needs to let these feeling out and talk but he keeps everything inside, which I believe is contributing to the issue.
Has anyone else out there have any experience with such, or just want to give some input?
