Hi guys. 31/f/L.A. I am not even sure where to post this. I am dealing with quite a bit of depression. I have epilepsy, and sever social anxiety. My husband is bipolar and can't even see that he is going through a crisis right now - nothing will make him happy. Not that there is a lot to make him happy at the moment. We live with my mother and she has started showing signs of a severe disorder that the doctors cannot identify. She is going to lose her job and our income will be severely decreased. We are barely making rent as it is. She is having very bad tremors to the point where she is not allowed to work or drive and I have to help her walk. She is also severely depressed and very scared because nobody understands what is happening to her. I don't know what to do or what is going to happen next. One of my sons is deaf in one ear and refuses to interact much with anyone - I am worried about him as well. =(
