We lost my husband in February of this year and the one child that I worried least about has become severely depressed. My son was a master at networking and finding work, education anything he wanted. He seemed to throw himself into his education and work after his father died. He has just landed his dream job that is also providing him with the flexibility to continue his education. And now he has shut down. He can't think, sleep, eat, get up, make decisions. He has talked of suicide but when I took him in to see a dr they asked if he had a specific plan on how to kill himself, he said nothing specific just a bunch of different ideas so they decided he was of no danger to himself and sent him home. Friends, relatives and co-workers have tried to help but no one has been able to reach him. I'm at a loss of what to do for him. Any ideas?
