Hi - I'm glad you brought your concerns over here to a 'busier' board.

I am so sorry you & your wife & the family is having this very stressful situation to deal with.

This is a big burden for you to carry.

I am the main support person for my 24 year old son, who has substance abuse issues & ended up with psycyhosis & a diagnosis of schizophrenia.

I also deal with anxiety & depression in myself (& I guess obsessiveness as well).

As a main support person, it's been VERY important for me to seek support for ME.

I sincerely hope that you are able to seek support for yourself in this situation.

I hope you're in a country where the medical system can provide you with affordable help.

It's one thing trying to help your wife. The other thing that you touched on is the effect that is bound to have on YOU.

Perhaps a phonecall to a local hospital or to a government mental health agency would be a place to start. Some employers provide EAP (Employee Assistance Plan) for some short-term counselling.

I wish you all the best.

Sincerely, Kath
