He is doing stuff like his older sister used to do - it drove her family nuts. He will complain about all these symptoms, and how awful he feels, and he needs to see the doctor SOON .... Then when the doctor comes in, or the nurse calls, he will just mention some minor problem or even tell them he 'feels pretty good.'
Then we end up feeling like fools when they don't understand why the urgent visit.
In the ER, a few months ago, the doctor wanted to put him in a nursing home, and we don't know whether he over heard, and is afraid to tell the doctor how bad he feels, or what is going on. Getting to the point where I don't want to take him to the doctor - very embarrassing.
