My 20 year old son has hit severe depression, began drinking large amounts of alcohol , obsessing over a girl, and cannot function. He does not live at home. Is in college, not far from me. I am sick with worry, and looking to talk to anyone with an older son/ daughter. Please, ask questions, give me advice...the story is a long one. I am desperate and feel completely helpless

I know what that is like. Maybe if him and this girl got couples counseling if he really loves her
Maybe it could help there relationship and him.
He seems like a good guy. To good for her.

He is on meds. Truly, everything from his life seems to be depressing him, but ultimately he acts as if he needs her for him to be ok. She blows him off for days or weeks at a time, then comes back and he is all good..until the next time. It's so bazaar . He has always been annoyed and stayed away from drama, and situations like this. Somehow it sucked him in, and I'm certain the alcohol is what is turning it to be so pathetic..

Would he try depression meds? And what is troubling him besides the girl issue?
