He does not want to stop drinking and say s he doesn’t care if he dies

Jan 6, 2019 · Meet fellow Caregivers - Introduce yourself in Caregivers

Hi my name is Jeannie and I am a care giver of my 50 yr old bf I am 57 and I have taken care of my mom who had Alzheimer’s for 19 years she has passed and my dad who had bladder cancer diabetes and dementia so I’m used to it somewhat but this is the hardest thing I’ve ever done . My bf is an alcoholic has hepatic Encephalopathy and pancreatic issues and cirrhosis and the worst is he’s had well over a hundred brain injuries as he was a jockey he’s also got only one eye two fake hips broke his neck back shoulder collar bone and has pins in his leg. When we met he was a gentle soul funny and lively he drank himself into this mess and I don’t know how long he has but my concerns are that he gets very violent and yells and has no concept of what he’s saying or even doing sometimes his mom has been diagnosed with stage four cancer not looking good and he’s close to his mom and he can not handle any type of stress or a problem .his dr has given him lactulose to take but that’s all he’s got crappy insurance and he won’t stop drinking so they don’t want to help him and I’m worried he’s going to get way worse as he’s Been in the last two to three years . He’s very stubborn and nasty I can not make him do anything he doesn’t want to he still drives but gets lost sometimes but not for long as I remember my mom doing this but it’s hard watching him kill himself he’s quite mean but I know it’s the disease but my question is what dr do I go to and what do I ask for and that’s if he will go I’m really dealing with a volcano type personality and he just got disability this month I’ve been paying for everything and I’m broke and I am worried that well he gets depressed a lot he can’t take depressants he gets real nuts he’s tried a lot and it’s scary these drs don’t seem to be to concerned as they know I’m a very responsible person but I need help I don’t know where to turn or what to do because some days he’s ok and it’s always those days we go to the doctors and they think. I’m exaggerating and I’m not . I do love him and don’t want to see him die but it’s looking as if it’s inevitable as he won’t stop drinking and he’s on pain pills for all his pain too. Any suggestions?
