      Aww dear this sounds a very difficult situation. If ive learnt anything from this site its that getting medication right is a tricky preocess. What works for some doesnt for others. It also takes a good 3 months to get into your system.Group meetings sound like they are too much for her. I have always had one to one sessions. Is that an option? The trouble with depression is the lack of motivation and fear and anxiety. It takes courage to face up to the challenges of life. I know you will of tried everything so im not sure what advice i can give. I know when im really down i dont want to talk or face anyone. But i know ultimately that if i dont try my hardest to beat this then ultimately the illness will beat me. I honestly believe deep down there is a way out. Part of getting better is accepting help. Has your partner has any cbt therapy? I really hope things turn around for yous

      Thank you for replying.

      Her motivation is never there she does work as a Mobile carer And works alone I'm proud of her for getting the job as I though she would never experience a working life. We also have 4 children and that's a challenge as she's never has a brake . She has no friends and it's horrible to see her so lonely. As I've tried to get my friends partner to come round but she doesn't like new people around her. She has never tried one to one help before I've asked her to go see the doctor but it's a no go Area.

      I just don't no how to approach the situation like going to get help and medication again.

      I try to help as much around the house and with the children i do work a 50 hour week and we never have much time together as I come in from work and then she goes out to work
