Hello Anon

Thank you for writing and I'm sorry you're having these troubles with your son. I hope he is not living with you.

It may be a time for a temporary but complete separation from him until things get sorted. You need space to be able to think things through and feel safe. You don't need to take his calls or receive him for visits.

A therapist may be able to help - see what you can find online (a good search in your area) for free or sliding scale. You don't have to put up with abuse.
