For your son on the other side
After my little sister I managed to cope for a while, but it eventually hit me.
Ways of coping can are unique to the individual. No one size fits all.
As your 23 yo is doing so well, you can be proud, and just support his choices til he is able to find a form of help that is meaningful to him.
I have experienced reluctance to seek help, in both my brother and my son.
Many young men of today are a beautiful breed and becoming a real man does not happen automatically at age 21.
