Need advice...how do you help your adult child if he doesn't want help but needs it?
Good morning. i just joined this group and am hoping there will be other moms out there going through the same thing as I am with my adult son. He is 25 years old, doesn't live at home anymore but with his gramma ( my mom) only few minutes from us. He has been battling depression since he was a teenager and most recently alcoholism this past couple years. He does well when he is sober and is a good dad to his 6 year old son (when he is not drinking)but when he is drunk, goes into more of a depression and admits he's depressed but won't seek help (states wont help anyway) or take whatever help we try to offer him. Its just frustrating because he will call me and want to talk when he is drunk about how no one cares about him, how he never had a father, etc and so on and I listen but its hard because when I try to tell him that we do care about him and want him to get help so he can be happy, he doesn't really listen) Any advice? Any other moms going through the same thing? Thanks for letting me share (sorry so long)
