Hi. I'm new here, and thought that I might be able to meet some other moms dealing with similar problems. My 14 year old son is extremely depressed. We have been through two years of turmoil due to a job loss. Things are stable now, but we are moving to rejoin my husband at his new job in Nebraska. My son is extremely depressed that we are moving.
We have seen the doctor and seen a therapist, but my son had a really negative experience with therapy a few years ago and is VERY resistant to going. He was put on an antidepressant, but right now all he wants to do is hide in his room and skype with his girlfriend. I've tried everything under the sun to try to get him to interact more, but I am limited in that I have 2 other much younger children and I am on my own as a parent. His little brother (4) drives him crazy and he doesn't want to go anywhere or do anything with us because he ends up so annoyed and angry with my littlest. Any advice?
