> Thank you, everyone. My dad is a tough case. From all accounts, he has a good pdoc, but it's unclear whether he really tells the pdoc what's going on with him. He's the classic helpless/hopeless depressive. I know that at one point, several months ago, he went to see the pdoc, and when asked, reported that everything was fine (when it was NOT).

I don't know if your father would allow this, but at a time when I was really bad, if I had to go somewhere someone had to drive me. Once when we went to my PDoc appt. my Mom said I'm coming in. Okay with me, I really didn't care. But she had a better insight as to what was going on with me when we left. And my PDoc.

Sounds like you have good PDoc for him, half the battle, but why not You or your Mom show up for a couple of appts before he has time to argue? See whats really going on? I think the time for niceties is past, and PDoc should certainly understand.

Just a thought.

Good Luck!
