My son is 19, he and his girlfriend have a 1 year old. He has had anxiety issues for many years. They are going through a rough time and I really don't expect her to be around much longer. He works third shift and she typically levies her "I'm leaving" conversations just before or just after he goes to work. He's there all night alone and each time she does this he goes to pieces. I've spent the past two nights on the telephone with him trying to calm him down. It will happen again tonight. I feel like I've run out of things to say and I'm at a loss as to how to help him. I can't make him understand that she may leave and we can't stop her. He thinks I somehow can. He spends his nights trying to "fix" the problem. I feel like I'm letting him down and I feel so badly for him as I went through the same thing with his mother. I don't know what to say. I don't know what to do. I can't get either of them to cooperate. I've tried to get them to call a truce on work nights, but they continue this same behavior. I'm lost.
