Hello I am new to Cafe mom, and am in need of some help in dealing w my son.
My son is 24, US army, 3 tours, stationed recently in Braumholder Germany.
My son tried to kill hisself 2 months ago and was admitted to hospital for a month. Diasgnosed w PTSD, severe depresson, drug and alcohol depency. Was released 3 weeks ago and was put back to work on base w counseling. They are working on his discharge he has been told, but possibly could not be stateside till December.
I was up all night again chatting w him trying to calm him down or trying too. He is so scared. I feel hopeless at this point and dont know what to do or say. How do I deal w this. I feel so helpless to help at all. I cant continue like this.
He is divorced w 2 lil girls and his gf delivers in 2 weeks.
Please, what do I do? I feel he should be stateside with his family for support. In a hospital here, we could be there for him.
