My FIL was diagnosed with PD in Feb but has been struggling with pain and insomnia for about two years. As things are getting worse- he cant work, drive or play golf right now- he is getting very depressed. I made an appointment for a counselor and told him I would do all the ground work and drive if he would go. He seems very reluctant but hasn't flat out said no. Just is worried, scared, and has trouble making the decision (as he is about everything at this point, understandably). He just keeps telling me that he doesn't think it will help. Anyone been here? Have advice on how I can gently help him here with out being too pushy. He is still living independently with his wife, and I just try to spend extra time visiting with them when I can.
