I don’t know if this is the right place to ask this question, but I’m desperate
I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have a 15 year old stepson and I think that he may be inhaling fumes from aerosol’s. I went into his room tonight and his pupils were very dialated. He denied any wrong doing, but did say that he was bored and was spraying some bug spray on a school binder and lighting it with a lighter.
I don’t know as much about this as I probably should, this is just something I never saw coming and it has really caught me off guard. The reason I feel that he may be inhaling things is because a few weeks ago I had this horrible smell of something like paint thinner in my bathroom and never could find where it was coming from, I’m the only one who uses this bathroom and thought that was quiet odd. So, since then I’ve have really been watching for any signs.
I know this can kill and is sooo dangerous. I am contacting the school and doctor tomorrow, it’s just that I’m sitting here blown away at this and don’t have anywhere to turn. He won’t admit any wrongdoing and I don’t know exactly how to handle this. Does anyone know if these chemicals would show up in bloodwork if I have it done? I don’t know if this is something that just started or how long he has been doing it, it could be new to him or maybe been going on for awhile and he needs rehab, I am willing to do whatever it takes.
What if it will not admit it, do I just flat out tell him that I know he is doing it? What do I do? Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.
THank you in advance
