As a parent of a 32yr old who stays in his room and sleep during the day and up all night. I believe this to be to avoid us his parents and the world as well as any expectations of any kind. I’m sure this is defense mode but how do we get him out of it if we never see him?? Is it acceptable for us to request home to change his lifestyle or will it just drive him deeper into avoidance? How can we create expectations without d pushing him further away? We are older and retired and very concerned about how he will handle life without us. We live in a state that has a 10 year waiting list for Medicaid plus he is not officially diagnosed. Thanks for any help we are lost and fearful for him.
