This is my first post here. My son sleeps 12 hours a day (but not really sleep as his mind races). He is on a new sleep medicine but it is giving him headaches so he goes back to the doctor on Friday... He recently lost his half-brother (last December) to suicide, and his father in March a year ago to esophageal cancer. He took care of his dad for about a year going though the heartache of that disease. So he suffers from PTSD as well. He tries to get a job, but due to poor work history and his sleep issues it is so difficult. But this has always been a problem. He sleeps so late into the day... and has for many years. He was in the Navy for 3 years and doing well at first, but then got involved with someone and even quit the Navy. He says it is too difficult to do even the smallest things... call his therapist for appointments, go to grocery store, do laundry, etc. and now that he is 30, he feels he is a complete failure. His therapist recommended he go to a two week outpatient program at the health center but he balked at that. I can't force him. What can I do? Would a family intervention be advisable? I'm nearly his only contact at this point, other than his doctor on occasion and maybe a therapist every now and then. He said the last time he felt good was when he was working out and going to therapy, but then he got a night job and quit that. so I suggested he get back to that plan for a while and not worry about work...( I can help him.) I believe he's had depression for a very long tome, and now it's just developed into major depression with anxiety and PTSD. Any and all help is appreciated. God bless you and heal all those suffering here.
