I am new to this..so hi!
I am a type 1 diabetic and so is my dad. About 5 years ago my dad retired and slipped into major depression. He does not believe he needs insulin (his A1c last year was 16!!!!) or any other medication. His health is slowly go down hill. He doesn't want to leave the house at all. His social skills are gone. He lost a bunch of weight. He obsessively scatches these sores on his legs. Which are all black & blue now. He lives with my step mother. I suggested inpatient treatment, but of course my dad doesn't think so. My step mother says he has to be willing to go and wont submit him just because he is skinny now.
Is there anything I can do?
