My son was in a bad accident when he was ten, he just about died and had to relearn to walk and missed out on about 6 months of his life. This happened when he was ten. I was his main caregiver and turned into mom, dr, physiotherapist, phycologist, nurse, teacher well you get the picture. If it needed to be done I was the one to push him to do it. We have him walking in 3 months after his accident. Well back to the point. Ever since his accident he has become more and more abusive towards his younger brother and me. He literally took a hit lighter and out it against his brothers skin to watch it burn and he has become very emotionally abusive towards me. It got to the point where he was asked to leave out home and live else where because his attitude toward his brother and me were beginning to effect our mental health as well. My question is is is normal for a person who is suffering from PTSD to be abusive toward the people who care for them and is there something we can do before he goes down a road he can’t come back from? I’m desperate for advise because he still comes home and verbally abuses me to the point where my physical health is being effected.
