Sorry for the rant. I try to keep family matters private but I am hoping for some advise. My son (25) lives with me, works 2 jobs, separated from his wife and has custody of his daughter on weekends. I know it has been rough for him. Over his eyeballs in bills and little fun. He was in love with his wife but she couldn't stand being by herself while he works 2 jobs so she found someone else to give her attention. Her new relationship went sour as well..my son talks with her on the phone several times a day and it usually ends up with one of them yelling. My boy gets very depressed and threatens to kill himself. He gets depressed like this quite often. nearly every week. I am noticing he is happiest when he is working. Yesterday as I was trying to get some sleep after midnight shift I receive a phone call from his ex. She says she received a message from him the night before saying he was going to hurt himself. She tried to call him and he wouldn't answer. She called his work and they said he was not there. so....I get dressed and run down to his work and found that he is in fact, WAS there. I did not go in to see him but knowing he was ok as long as his truck was parked there. He comes home from work and cuts me eyes and ran past me..obviously his ex told him that she called me. He knew trouble was brewing. I told him that we had to talk... I am the typical worrisome mom...I go through all the basics of a lecture. How him ending his life affects so many. the price of funerals, everyone needs him,he is acting like a 15 yr old instead of a 25 yr old. everything that can be said I said. I told him how I wish I knew of the magical words to make everything all better and ended our conversation with a I love you so much and really need you! He tells me he really needs to see a dr. I also have fears of depression meds. He is uninsured. although I am considering putting him on my medical insurance. I have a vacation planned in the spring. I am hoping to take him up north to distract him from his problems. I just had to write and see if anyone has any advice that I haven't thought of. I have little understanding of these moods of his. I feel as if he has it made. A long life to have some fun and get involved with something he is interested in. I told him that he should go to work with children with cancer to learn how to appreciate life. Both his grandmoms died of cancer and cried when they found out their prognosis. They wanted to live so bad and here I have a healthy 25 yr old that wants to call it quits..
