What to do
Hi all, well here I am again trying to keep everyone happy. Apart from all my medical problems and my impending appeal for PiP, I am a mother of 5 grown up children, 4 sons and a daughter. My problem is that my eldest son, who is also disabled, was always the one his siblings went to for company and help, this was mainly due because he was on his own. Since his marriage, my second son has gone down hill very quickly, he was always an anxious person and on medication for it. Now things have got worse, he has always liked a drink or two, but it has got to the point now that he is drinking constantly, and borrowing money off family and probably friends. We managed to get him to speak with someone about this, but it didn't go any further, I am at my wit's end with worry especially now that he has become withdrawn and depressed. What should I do? I have to mention that all of my son's have been attacked at some time or other, which we know made my son's very dependent on each other, and myself and husband. I have tried so many times to get my second son to get help, but he says he is alright and doesn't need us constantly worrying about him. Any suggestions please.
