Depression in teen

My 17 year old son is depressed and acting erratically, out of character, and has anger outbursts. He has changed from a very loving son to someone who is angry, depressed, always running away and wanting to "go out", rejecting the family he was previously very attached to, being nasty and mean when confronted, denying he is doing anything out of the ordinary or blaming his almost violent anger outbursts on someone else doing something that isn't right, refuses to talk and connect anymore where previously we were very very close, he is very restless (always has been, but when younger it wasn't a problem...now he sometimes will just drive around to be "out of the house".), he has turned his back on his brother and sister and become extremely self centered and selfish and no longer the loving person he was. He is severely depressed, there are some other issues in the home that contributed, but he will not deal with them or admit to anything that he does, he is deceitful, but denies being so. He is arrogant and feels self important. He views others with disdain. We cannot work on any of these problems because he either denies them or becomes angry out of proportion to the issue if someone even asks the wrong question of. him, and says we are attacking him. He has always been intense and prone to anxiety and mild depression, but this betrayal of everything he once was is new within the past 2 years. His moods are extremely changeable, and he is very charming when we don't talk about any problems and he is getting what he wants. He manipulates people and I don't believe he knows what he is doing. He can be cheerful one moment, but one little thing goes wrong and he goes wild and threatens to leave and never come back, attacks the other person as if they have done something wrong even when it is just normal disagreements. His reactions are out of proportion to the issue. He refuses to discuss any of this with anyone as he feels so surely that he is right, and that his actions and attitude and words are completely and totally justified. I know that most of his problems are related to depression. He was always such a loving, attached, thoughtful, kind person. He tells me that certain foods he eats make him more depressed, but he doesn't stop eating them. Sometimes the foods will make him feel like crying, and he tells me that he just blasts music and runs around to make the pain of everything stop for a little while. All of these things are out of character for him and I want to help him be happy and at least be able to admit what he is doing to others and that he needs to be able to sit calmly and discuss issues without attacking someone else. In the past, you could talk to him, but his level of defiance and arrogance that he is always right has increased to the point that we can get nowhere. He refuses to talk about it and wants to pretend nothing is wrong and he is always on edge and so are we because we don't know when the wrong question will put him over the edge to acting violently angry again to the point of getting physical. He has developed a disinterest in his family due to his depression so he is always looking for something to do to distract him. I tried using the Remedy Finder but it was very difficult to distinguish between the few remedies that came up. He is open to help as he wants his old life back and not to feel disconnected from his family and those that love him.

I wanted to add that he can be very manipulative with the way he deals with family members and verbally attacks people whenever he gets slightly angry and defensive. VERY defensive always. He is so loving sometimes, but can betray his family within a moment and does not have any loyalty towards the people that have raised him and loved him and given him a wonderful life if he gets angry. I don't know what to think when he seems to be so opposite sometimes. Both extremes interchangeably.

Please write what foods disturb him.
Explain to him that people crave the foods they are allergic to.
Often, these food allergies do not cause too much distress till teen years.
The foods cause inflammation and irritation- and they take about 2 weeks abstinence to let the body settle down.

To be clear, these issues exist all of the time and just get exacerbated when he eats certain things . Some of those are chocolate or artificial colors . He still has the issues even when not eating them though
 
smpwk 4 days ago
FYI, unless he has gone two weeks eating none of those things,
They are in his system affecting him.
 
simone717 4 days ago
Yes I understand I am well versed in food allergies and intolerances . He has done many elimination diets and is still depressed and that is what I’m looking for help with
