Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

Thank you for bringing up the situation of your boyfriend within a forum like this. I think your boyfriend needs expert help of a psychiatrist and a substance abuse counselor. His prostate problems, being overweight and having asthma apart (which need to be seen by a family medicine doctor), he needs to see a psychiatrist for his sleep disorder which might be secondary to a substance abuse condition. I also feel like he may have a primary mental health problem. Please consult these specialists as soon as possible along with your boyfriend.

I hope this helped. Take care and have a nice day !
