I totally agree with usayit. It makes so much sense and his decisions are so different depending on his mental health at the time.

Lets hope that he finds his way.

How bad do you need his paycheck? His returning to NY wouldn't net him 20K more than Cleveland due to taxes/housing costs/commuting back and forth to see family. LI was worsened in cost since you relocated.

If he is happy in PA, could he settle for a low paying local job to contribute to household finances and is this financially possible for you? Does he tie his self worth to his job, or can he separate the two?

Best of luck.

He did turn down three lower paying jobs in this area (paying $10 an hour). Right now he is doing his CDL and got his permit yesterday so hopefully things are going up.

I can't even imagine what you're going through. I can't give any advice or anything so I guess I'll just offer my prayers, for whatever it's worth. Hope he gets well.
