You took the words right out of my mouth! Great post! It makes me so mad to see anyone take a mental illness so lightly! If you are a parent of someone with a mental illness read up on it! Learn what he may be going through! I have devere depression, and anxiety,and have since I was 13! It is the worst feeling in the world! It does make you want to be in bed alot, simply cause u feel so depressed u don't want to do anything!!!...And I am quite sure he feels so alone in this matter being his own parent is basicly calling him a liar! WHen u have no support it makes it worse. I know I have none, and it sucks!!!...you need to get him help stop saying he is lazy! A mental illness is most likely going to last forever! It takes time and patience to get him on the right meds!!!!View Thread
