i have told him he needs to talk about it. he has been bottling it all up and not dealing with it. i have gave him money to go to the pub with as he said he fancied a drink. i know drinking is not the answer but i just want to make him happier. i hate seeing him so upset and i feel powerless as there is nothing i can do or say.
he cant talk to anyone but me about it as sil doesnt want anyone to know. so i have no one to talk to either but i can understand why sil is keepong it in the immediate family for now.
