    This is great info. My son is 30 and has had lifelong behavioral issues. Sometimes I think I’m looking for the diagnosis to prove he’s not a bad person, that he just has mental health issues. Then I flip to the other extreme and think he should just get his life together and move on, and that has not happened. I feel like I walk a tightrope even with many professionals assisting our family with the mental health issues.
