A Powerful Read: "I am Adam Lanza's Mother" - Page 2

post #21 of 23
It sounds like professionals have been unable to give her an answer to her sons problems or even any coping techniques. I completely understand, but do not condone, her negativity and lack of understanding her son. It is very easy to feel that way when no one has provided any hope/information/support. Can you tell what experiences are coloring my view of this article? There needs to be better resources.

I have a mentally ill son.  He is prone to rages and mood swings.  He has pediatric-onset bipolar disorder.  He is nothing like the child described in the essay.  That child has a personality disorder, IMO.  It is the narcissism that makes that child (and others w/PDs) potentially dangerous.

I am sorry about your son. When you see how many of these shootings were done by young people on or withdrawing from medications like SSRIs, you have to suspect it is the effect of these drugs on their brains that in many cases drive these people to commit these acts. Here is a news report from 2002 on the subject of school killings. This is why asked the question, "Who was Adam Lanza's doctor"?
