    Hi @paulnut1 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining & sharing. I'm so very sorry to read about how many losses you've experienced & that your parents are not so good. All of this must be so very understandably difficult to bear.
    I'll ask my friend @thespiceman for advice, as he may be able to help as far as your depression & anxiety goes.
    Again, I see my friend thespiceman was posting at the same time as I. Please look through his helpful links.
