That's the problem. He refuses to go. He says there is nothing wrong with him. He went to a psychiatrist once who told him he has dysthymia. He put him on an antidepressant, but he didn't like it because it changed his libido. Our md here put him on ADD meds (non-narcotic) and we saw a bit of a change in him. He seemed more focused. However, the doctor ran out of samples and because our son has no insurance, he couldn't afford the meds. We have a history of mental illnes in my family. My grandmother had to have "mood builders" as an elderly and all of her sisters were reclusive in their depression. For example: my great aunt found out her husband was cheating and she promptly went to bed and never left the house again for years and years. My mother's sister is a hoarder-it is severe.
What do I need to do as a parent living with a son who needs at the very least a Licensed Professional Counselor? How do I go about finding one for him. Our family has been through so many counselors that were just not good fr us. About 8 different ones in ths small community and Houston.
It has. It was the confirmation i was looking for. I am already in the process of looking for a professional for me and the rest of our family. I just am not certain how to find one. There are so many out there who just don't cut it as a counselor. My plan is to look into my husband's insurance company first. Hopefully, we can get one this time who is serious about getting down ot the issue and helping us with real life answers.
Thank you and God bless.
