Suggest see your GP to discuss a referral for needs assessment. This will establish whether needs rest home care. ...Read more

How do i open up to counsellor about eating disorder. Never talked about it at all to anyone for years. I just can't make myself say anything.  ?

You are human-seeking assistance. We all are ...Read more

Scolding/arguing reinforce behaviors & can hurt his feelings. ...Read more
