Obviously no one can say for sure, but id bet anything it is definitely temporary zolt.

How long has the deep funk been going in for about?

I can only speak from personal experience... But honestly that personal experience of mine is crazy similar to that of your son's.

It may take some time, and can be real slow going, but i think things will start slowly getting better for him. He has already done like the hardest part, which is just taking those first few steps to getting better, which for him is seeing a shrink and some meds.
Then once he starts feeling a little better he can take some other small steps. Shit like getting some easy going job so he can have some cash in his pocket and feel a little more accomplished, maybe start talking with a girl, start doing some fun hobbies etc etc.
Then that shit all adds up. Step at a time.

Id say the best thing you could do, other than continue to just be there for him like you already are, would be to try and figure out a way to help him figure out something to do with his life. Help him find a purpose. Help him go to school maybe, even if just starting out at a community college.
Another good idea would be trying to convince him to do some traveling.

And i think i may have mentioned it to you previously but, i think it'd be an awesome idea to throw some buddhist literature his way. The shit is beyond applicable to his situation, and really helped me when in a very similar place. Pm me for some ideas.

And lastly, quit being so hard on yourself you blockhead. You didnt fail as a parent that is absurd.
Look, if you are a failure that would mean MY father is also a failure... considering how i too was like your son. But i can tell you with 100% certainty that that is not the case. My father did an excellent job as a parent, but i still turned out funky lol.

Now you REALLY gotta snap out of that kinda bullshit thinking man. If you wont do it for yourself, then PLEASE do it for your son.
You being so hard on yourself does nothing but fuel your son's sadness in all honesty. I guarantee he can tell you feel that way and it is eating at him bigtime. Shit will just further fuel that hopeless feeling.
I dont mean to put more shit on your plate by saying that, but you gotta snap outa that mindset man. It doesnt do anyone any good.

You're a great parent and you'll continue to be one.
Just keep being supportive, go with the flow, and be patient. I know it is near impossible but you gotta stop worrying so much.

You got this man.
And so does your son.

Lots of kids live at home into their late 20's these days. It's not like it was when we were young. He's only 24, and he's going through a very emotionally demanding time in his life, right now. Let that pass, and everything will fall into place. I'm sure he'll be just fine.

Don't ever regret loving your kids too much. It doesn't make them weak. It makes them empowered. Knowing you matter is going to help you face life's challenges far more than any "toughening up" could ever do. I know from personal experience.

Also, if you're "Feeling your age" try working out. I've lost weight and gotten in much better shape than before and the feeling is like night and day. When you're young, getting in shape makes you feel a bit better, but when you're older, it's like getting over being sick for the last 10 years. Just start slow, old timer.

You already know I love you, Zolty. Everyting be AOK, yah.

Thanks fb...I always appreciate your input.

You're right...I'll stop kicking myself in the ass as of NOW (my 61st b-day) & won't dwell on the past. Thanks for the 'pat-on-the-back' & letting me know (HH too) that I wasn't a shitty dad & sometimes bad things just happen to good peeps. You're a good dude, fb, & I do want to get some literature about Buddhism. Sounds like it might help BOTH our craniums at this point.

I'll PM you a little later...now I gotta get something to eat.

We must've just crossed paths in posting, Rev. When I just answered fb's post, I saw yours.

Thanks my brother...we go back a long time & I've always respected your opinion (you too, fb), so thanks once again for making me feel not so lousy anymore. Like I mentioned, I guess bad shit can happen to good people & it's nobody's fault. I'm going to take you up on the exercising idea. It definitely won't hurt.

Plus I was thinking of getting myself an iPhone. My accountant told me I have to start withdrawing $$$ from my IRA that I started at age 29...so maybe I'll treat myself to a b-day present. Always wanted 1 of those phones...not getting any younger...so what the fuck?

Zolt, you were NOT rude or unappreciative. It was just a misunderstanding.

It happens. No worries, OK?

Have you ever considered that it isn't always the other person. You seem pretty stubborn to the point of never admitting that there is a possibility that you could be wrong.

Why is it that in the american society that anytime points a light on someone being wrong that the person shining the light is just "depressed, mad, salty, etc.." can it ever be that the person is sad that their friends have given up on growth and have this passive, "it will be how it is going to be, i have no control over anything, it just is".

I get it, you are a big passive baby and don't want to have anyone point that out and challenge you, so I will bow out. Have a nice life of being walked all over and "going with the flow"...

You shouldn't be giving zolt advice on a perpetual child living at home because you have your own perpetual child living at home. So you are the worst possible person to be giving advice on how to provide the child with the tools that they need to move on and start a life of their own.

Is this an episode of 'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers'?? Sure doesn't sound like the Grieves I once knew.

Just how long have you been pouring piss on your corn-flakes?

You have kids? If so, how many hours do you let them out of lock-up daily? I mean WTF dude? A parent doesn't turn their back on their kid no matter what age they are. If they need help, where are they supposed to turn?

Your folks ever help you out of a jam? Have you been the perfect son? Lighten the fuck up!!

I don't have kids, so that is why I am not offering "advice". I just get tired of reading the Rev's whole "eh, it is how it is, we can't do anything" spiel all the time, Just as he has tired of me calling him out on it.

As for those questions,

No, my parents resented me because I was an accident and their only child and the main reason they married(since divorced) and they gave up on me at 16. Not in the "he's a bad egg, what are we going to do with him" sorta way, but the "eh we can't provide him any more life skills so he is on his own" way.

No, I have not been the perfect son because I didn't go back and grovel for attention and a return to comfort. I hit the ground running and have been working on providing myself a decent life ever since.

Sorry that I misread the situation and that you are happy with your son being around, and you just wish the best for him like any decent parent would.

This whole thing just comes down to the fact that we can only share our own experiences and Rev was given the "tough love" approach and rebelled against it so he refuses to be that way. I have shared my experience, and it wasn't welcome and was just batted away by people assuming that it is just the outburst of a "depressed". So like I said, I will dip out and spare you guys the "piss on your corn-flakes"

Hey man...no hard feelings. I left home at age 18...travelled for 3 years, then would either get my own crib or move into a house with like 4-5 other people.

Back in the early 1970s, I think it was easier for us to go out on our own. We didn't think so much, as we weren't bombarded with information 24/7. The Internet has made young people feel like if they haven't made their millions of $$$ by age 20, it's all over for them.

My generation? We didn't give a shit what others had or thought of us. For some reason, young men in their early to mid 20s, think they missed the 'dot com' boat...or the 'cellphone' boat by not getting in on the ground floor. Then you have these pretty-boys like Justin Bieber & other overnight You Tube sensations that were in the right place at the right time & are tonning it with cash. Look at that fuckwad Floyd 'Money' Mayweather. He carries around 2 duffel bags with a million dollars in them. Why? Who fuckin knows! I guess just to show off & then he brags about dropping $75,000 to $100,000 in strip joints in 1 night. Makes other 'kids' (& yeah, if you're in your 20s, you're still a kid) think of themselves as failures because they can't do that.

My generation didn't give 2 shits who was rich, who was poor, who was educated or who wasn't. If you were a cool dude, a nice guy...that was all that mattered (a bag of good smoke & some LSD helped a lot as well). Seems like nowadays, it's pounded into youngsters' heads that if you aren't loaded, or don't have your own business, you've missed the boat & might as well flip burgers.

I didn't mean to be harsh on you, Grieves old pal, but when a person becomes a parent, you'd take a bullet for your kid without hesitation. I'm sorry your childhood wasn't too good (I'm an only child as well, but my folks tried for 13 years before I was born...doc told my mom she'd never have kids, but that didn't stop them from trying). So when I was growing up, my folks were old enough to be my grandparents.

No hard feelings, my friend.

I'm genuinely curious as to what you think those tools are? A hypothetical example of any 20 something kid, bad work history, low self esteem, depression symptoms.... what should the parents do? And what should the kid do?

I think the economy is shit, our society is shit, and a lot of the me generation got fucked (mostly the males) if they didn't hit the ground running like you say you did.

You might not think I'm being genuine, but this is a topic I've brought up before. If you don't respond with sincerity, I'm going to bounce. I'm sick of this board and the enabling that goes on. I can't take it seriously.

Rev isn't the worst offender by any stretch. He projects a little bit with philosophy anti-free will theory, but I see every other member chiming in with the same bullshit form responses over anyone who has personal problems. It's fucking lame and weak.

I can totally see where Grieves is coming from and most certainly agree with the point he was trying to make. I had (and still have, thank God) pretty damn good parents. Unlike Grieves I was a troublemaker though. Nothing major, just petty vandalism, sneaking girls through my window, my sister and I threw a fucking barn-burner of a party on my parents ranch when they went to Hawaii on their anniversary. Almost got away with it except my mom asked our fat-ass nazi neighbor to keep tabs on us and ruined the whole thing. That would make for a great story btw, watching her waddle around and out of breath trying to write down like forty license plate numbers.

I left very shortly after I turned 18. It wasn't because my relationship with my parents was bad, it was because we lived on a ranch twenty miles away from civilization. I have been on my own every since, scrimping and saving. Unlike Grieves, and to give Zoltron props for his point, I have asked for money exactly twice, and could still ask now and know I would get it. Both times were when I was about to be evicted and had lost a job or the second time when I needed a deposit that I just couldn't make on a house.

My kid sister and my brother both lived with mom and dad into their early twenties, now they've gone out to do their own thing. I don't know if it was ingrained in us not to ask for handouts but we almost (all five of us) never do. I love my family and my folks and I know if a time ever comes where I absolutely, unequivocally need them to bail me out they would. But I have gone through many crises, many days where I would worry about food and rent and bills and the last thought on my mind was calling my mom or dad for help.

Maybe it's just country life, maybe it's just Terry stubbornness, maybe it's not wanting to live in the sticks and birth cows every fucking day because those assholes will not stop banging, but we all made it. Lower-middle class, running one of the few farms that doesn't exist on federal subsidies they all made it out ok.

And now here I am primed to move BACK IN with my parents because my dad cannot handle the ranch with no kids around to help him. So I guess it all comes full circle. Anyone wants some raw milk or free-range chicken eggs PM me, in about two weeks I'm gonna be elbow deep in both.
