Welcome to HealingWell depression forum. It is great to hear from you. You have come to a good place where all of the members are so kind and compassionate. There is no judging going on here and I think that you will be happy that you joined.
The most important thing is to not let him pull you down, so continue working on yourself. Hopefully he will follow what you are doing. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. That is an old saying but so true. All you can do is send him in the right direction but you can't make him seek help. I know how hard it is honey, and I can clearly see he needs to address his own issues and get the help that he needs.
If he doesn't start spending time with his son, he will end up regretting it in the long run. Which is very sad to me. I truly hope that he will see a counselor or a doctor as needed.
In the meantime, keep posting. We are here for you and will listen and give advice as we see fit. A lot of us have experienced what you are going through. There is another post on the same thing that you are experiencing so read read read. You will see how others deal with this particular situation.
I wish you the best with all of this. Try to stay relaxed, and like I said, keep working on you. Hopefully he will come around and see that he needs some serious help and take the initiative to help himself.
Keep posting and let us know what is going on with you. We are always here for you.
Sending you (((((hugs)))))
