Somethings up with dad


He used to have no time for TV
Now he has no time for work
There is a big pile of it in his room
He has put on a lot of weight too
Because he can’t resist chocs and sweets
He doesn’t want to do anything.

I’m worried!


Maybe he is depressed.
Have you talked with him about it?**


How old is he? Sometimes there’s really just nothing to do in the retired life but bliss out & relax to anything that tickles your fancy.


I’m with @bridgecomet. It sounds like something’s up. I also agree that it sounds like depression.


I really feel bad. Because I have not handled this well. I will speak to him about it properly this evening.


Drop a few gentle hints. Tell him your worried about him.


Ahhh mistercollie is just bothered because I think his dad actually needs to do some hardtime.

I think the statute of limitations is actually made for people like me.


I’m taking him to see his GP tomorrow.
