easy child has been in and out of, or bouncing around the skirts of, depression for the better part of the year. Mostly, it's shown itself in that he's been hard to live with and making bad choices (not graduating on time, waiting to the last second to finish so he could still graduate this year, quitting his job with no notice and no job lined up, breaking up with girlfriend in May, etc). If I mentioned it to him, he would either deny it or would say he'd get over it, but that he's not going to talk to anyone. This morning I woke to him on the phone with girlfriend (she was at work, on break). He's catastrophizing (is that a word?). He *hates* his new job. In the past, he would hoover it up. Now, it's making him physically ill and creating tons of anxiety and angst. (He is actively looking for another job.) He's been in full blown angst over this job since the first day of his second week. And he was excited to get this job. As he was on the phone with girlfriend, he was totally freaking out because he couldn't find his keys. It was 30 minutes before he had to leave for work. I got out of bed and helped him look, then got his spare key off my key ring. He was still freaking out. Full blown panic. He found his keys (buried under the covers of the bed), flopped down on his stomach on his bed and started to sob. He asked me if I thought he was depressed. I told him yes. He asked what he could do about it. Remembering that he wasn't willing to talk to anyone, I told him he could make an appointment with our GP and get a script for an AD. He then asked if I thought he should talk to [therapist]. I told him, yes. Then he starts to panic because he won't be able to see her because of his work hours (he works 11:30am to 8pm with frequent overtime, often til 9:30pm). I told him therapist schedules her first appointment at 10am and he'd have plenty of time. So, tomorrow morning I'm calling tdocs office to see how soon she can get him in. I'm afraid he's nearing his breaking point. I'm very worried about him. He could really use the power of the board right now. TIA.
