I am a Mum with Asperger's and cannot cope with any confrontations with others - and suffer with mutism when I have tried to deal with emotional problems. My adult son can be very verbally aggressive towards me. He does not live at home but in a house which I agreed to help him buy, but for which I have ended up paying the mortgage for the last ten years, and which is a struggle for me. It does not seem to occur to him that he should be paying this himself. He is working and spends all of his money on cars, motorbikes and drink. I think he probably has some debts. His brother complains that he never pays his way if they go out.
Despite everything, I am terrified of alienating him or triggering him to do something stupid.
Can anyone offer any helful suggestions?
