Hello
I am hoping to learn more about codependency and depression. Currently my son is very depressed and it is causing him to have extremely high blood pressure and other health issues. I feel as if he would benefit from coda meetings and have suggested it to him. He recently had a very ugly breakup with a girlfriend he had been going out with for about a year. After that happened he took off out of state to a relatives home and now is suffering. Other than making suggestions for seeking help, medication or meetings i do not know how to be a benefit to him. I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks

Hi,
Listen and let him know how much you love him. It's his life and he gets to choose how to live it for himself.
Help him to know you trust that he will make good decisions for himself and that you will always be there for him.

Its hard being a mom sometimes when we can see the path our children are on but life is a teacher. We only have control over ourselves ultimately. I am sorry he had a breakup and is suffering. I am sorry you are suffering with him.

It must be some heartache to see your kid or grown up child suffering. I agree you need to show him you love him and are there for him and always will - if you can say it all. the 12 steps programs are great in that one only needs to want to recover and be at the meetings to participate. No med's, no cross talk, receptive. If your son sees a shrink, he or she will give him med's. A psychologist would be a good start to know if he needs med's.

Life is a school with no vacation... I heard it from an 80-year-old.

I read in one of the posts that someone should not trust their child but trust in the power above on what the power would do with the child. All the best,

Thank you both.

It is tough to see him suffering. I will continue to let him know i love him and am willing to talk to him.

Thanks again.
