Hi, Richard Attanasio! Thanks for your response and sorry to hear about your loved one.
Depression is an isolating disease that makes it hard to reach out as many of us don’t want to be a burden to others. However, to know that someone else doesn’t judge you and is there for you if you need them can make all the difference. Your loved one may or may not accept your help right away or at all, but knowing that said help is available could be a great help in itself.
I wish you and your loved one much strength. My email addy in is my bio if you need it.
