Yikes! Then maybe he either needs some meds (possibly antidepressant), a change in what he’s taking, therapy, etc. Everyone is different, and I find a very low dose of Adderall helps me immensely. Therapy can be difficult because when I feel like I need it, by the time I get an appointment, I’m feeling better again.
This is, obviously, going to be something you’ll have to decide. But, I just saw “Alanon.” As I recall, that is for people who have a relationship with someone who has a drinking problem. If he’s issues with alcohol, then be very careful. I don’t want to make any more assumptions, but I’ve been there.
