Hi everyone. I have joined to share my ongoing experiences of caring for my wife of 20 years who was diagnosed with MDD, anxiety and insomnia about 3 years ago. Since then We have had numerous doctors prescribing medication, therapy, and a range of other treatments. Unfortunately she is now worse then when we first sought help in autumn 2017. I am the main Carer and my back up is very limited.

:welcome:Lightbulb!Do you have any respite caregivers-someone who can help while you take a break? Maybe a local support group if they are being allowed. This is a good place to find support. Sounds like your wife is still very sick. So, sorry. Just remember, you can't take good care of her unless you take good care of yourself too. :grouphug:
