That is so sad. He’s clearly crying out for help and understandably so, it’s driving you nuts. He needs to see a therapist. Perhaps your husband can suggest he go to one? Maybe make an appt for one and go with him? Maybe helping him get help will show him that he’s being too dependant on you guys.

@Mrslovebug:  That’s so sad. Hopefully a friend’s push towards therapy will help.

@Mrslovebug:  I don’t know what sort of community resources they have in Texas, but in Michigan we have CMH centers (Community Mental Health) & many times this is covered under medicaid if the person applies.

Either way, he really needs emotional support from a therapist that can help him cope with this. In the mean time he is medicating his emotions through his dependence on your husband. He would be better off (& so would you!) if he found a therapist that could help him work *through* his emotions as opposed to masking them by stalking your husband (for lack of better terminology lol).
