My son is undiagnosed. His wife kicked him out after 14 yrs. he's nearly 38. Has moved in with me after 12+ yrs of no contact and is claiming carers allowance as I am disabled. He barely sleeps, and spends most of his time playing online games which is taking all of his money. He is behind on his phone bill and credit card. I have tried talking to him about it but I cant get through to him. I only ask for £20 per week from him but he doesn't pay regularly. I have explained to him the importance of switching off electrical items at night to keep the bills down but he stays up all night and my bills are going through the roof. He tells me he has slept but then falls asleep as soon as he's watching tv but denies it if you call him on it, I caught him yesterday asleep in front of his computer and it took 3 attempts to get him to go to bed. He is very insular with no friends. I have 4 grandsons with aspergers and I fought for many years when my son was small because I knew that something wasn't right but back then they didn't know much and just told me I was neurotic. If anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it.
