Hi there, its been a while since I have posted here. Things have not changed that much in that time. My 23 year old son still suffers with depression and refuses to take medication. He is now binge eating which is making him put on weight, which adds to his depression as he has a low self esteem, which is meaning that he won't go out now, and then makes him starve himself which then leads to a binge, etc etc all of this makes his depression worse. I feel that he is spiralling downwards and I am just a spectator! I try everything I can offering healthy meals, offering advice, give him space, but let him know that I am here if he needs me, but alas he won't listen to me or anything I have to say. He achieved a good degree at university, but now won't apply for any jobs as he says that he won't fit into his suit (which I brought him). I give him no money, but he does not go out so his expenses are low. I keep sending him jobs (email) and dropping heavy hints that he needs to contribute but I know he is in a bad place at the moment and I don't want to pressure him too much. He has been suicidal before and I fear that we are heading down that road now! What can I do to stop this spiral? Now here comes the crunch, I have already had my father and grandfather commit suicide, and face people through my work who commit suicide ( I work in the Emergency Services) so it is VERY close to home for me. I am sooooo worried that he will commit suicide. I am sitting here wondering what on earth I did wrong with him. He is from a stable family and I have always been there for him. I give him space but support him.. where o where did I go wrong?? Any advice welcome.
