Furthermore, I feel that by doing these extra sessions he will begin to open up more and tell me exactly how he is feeling and exactly what is going on in his life that makes him feel the way he do. Yet, I do find that with some of the information we do have that there is some form of depression going on with Danny right now but the exact type of illness or depression he is suffer from is in my opinion not visible to me because of his lack of interaction as well as his denial of any such problem. He continues to deny that he has a problem when it is clear that he does have one because he is not sleeping, he took some that was very valuable ( Audi R8) from someone just for a test drive and he has recently tried to harm himself because of a cheating girlfriend.
