JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: 20 years on antidepressants I cannot cope with him here I'm looking after mum we really can't do it I don't know where to turn anymore

Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am so sorry to hear of this situation. I can only imagine how hard this must be for you all.

In regards ***** ***** to turn, unfortunately this does fall onto your son to seek help. Your Son can access housing support via the counsel once he has no place to stay. He can also request help via his GP to get involved with alcohol addiction services.

You would therefore need to stop supporting your son for this to start, with your son being aware he needs to be proactive to address this otherwise nobody will be able to support him.

If in doubt, call his GP and ask that they reach out to your son first.

He's in a hotel in doncaster at the moment I've had to move to Leeds to get away. He can't get council help there so I've had to pay for accommodation. We need the help to stop him staying here he's going to turn up tomorrow with some things and I can't let him in I'm at a loss making us both ill

Sorry to hear. Do you mean he is going to be forceful in trying to stay there despite you saying no?

he's very domineering I think he's psychopathic tendencies but not to kill anyone were too old to handle this. He's only got me now rest of family have nothing to do with him I'm really at end of my tether now
