Hello, I am feeling quite desperate. I am extremely worried about my eldest son (16). He has been diagnosed with deprsssion and anxiety issues and is currently on medication. I only found out about it in about april but he has been feeling this way for a few years. He was seeing a counsellor but has chosen to stop, for now at least. I am concerned that he is not getting better and is sliding backward. I probably should not have done this but I have taken a look at some of his emails and am very concerned. I know he has had sexuality worries (gay) but he has not spoken to me about them. He is not a good speaker and I can barely get two words out of him whenever I ask him about his depression etc. and don't know if I should approach him about him being gay. I want to tell him that we (husband, me and his siblings) don't care what his orientation is. i know this is not all that would be bothering him (if it even is) but i'm wondering if it might help (even a bit) with his dperssionn or if it would make it even worse asking him? Any help from anyone in the same situation is really appreciated. I am so worried, even though I know he thinks no one cares I have tried to make him see it but he is just so hard to talk to. I am so desperately sad. I am so disappointed in myself for not picking up on his depression.
