I have tried buying food, paying some of his bills, talking, working out a budget, encouragement, long supportive phone calls, etc. etc. Nothing changes. He was given bus fare for a hospital appointment and has spent this. Seems to think it is ok not to eat for several days at a time. Always searching for who he can borrow money from. Feels he is "unlucky". Have tried to explain managing his money is the key to reducing stress in his life. Understands this but carries on with self-destructive behaviour. I have no idea what would be the best way to help him.
