My 19 y/o son seems convinced he wont make it to see 21. For his 16th Bday, he was hospitalized for 2 wks w/ pnemonia, for his 17th Bday, his long time, 1st serious GF broke up w/ him, for his 18th Bday, we lost my Gpa & for his 19th he lost his dad. (Mind you this did not happen ON his B-day, but w/in days of his Bday. So as each B-day has gotten worse, he's convinced himself his life may be cut short. I told him not to think that way. That his B-day is a Blessed day & that the timing of events just suck. I think this is partly why he's so unfocused on important things & even why he dropped out of school. He wont see a counselor either. Is there a book, a movie, anything I could use as a tool to get thru to this kid?
