Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thanks for contacting Just Answer. Let's see if I can help you...
I am sorry that you are in a tough situation. Unfortunately, I find myself helping many clients in similar situations. It is tough, very tough! However, there is hope. Your son won't seek help and there is nothing anyone can do to make him seek help. So, what to do.......?
Well, in situations such as this, it is good for the others to get the help of a counselor or "Life Coach". You approach the counselor and explain that you want a "Life Coach" to help YOU deal with the situation.
Unfortunately, you can't control him - he will make his choices and there is little you can do about it. However, you can do lots about your choices. This has helped many in your situation. If you keep your focus on his situation, you will continue to be stuck where you are. I know this is tough, but it has worked for others.
In australia i don't think we have life coaches may be i should consult with my family doctor , and see what he can advice. My worry is because of his choices and can he make these choices? with this condtion, can his brain still funtion with this? seeings he in and out of reality that harm could come to him like getting hit by a car, as my daughter found him near a motor way, it really frighten me to think of the harm he can put on himself.
Yes, I would be lying if I said that your worries unfounded, but there really is not much that can be done, unless he decides to take action. As for a life coach - you can approach any therapist or counselor and explain that you want him to take on the role of a life coach - he will get it.
