How can I get over my husband's death?

Hello, my condolences to you and your family for the sudden loss of your husband. Not knowing how old your children are, it is good to keep in mind that grief shows up and is exhibited differently. Depending on the child's age, they have different concepts of death and how they respond. There are several online articles and resources that can help you understand the various developmental stages children go through and how they understand death. As for yourself, show some kindness and let yourself feel the hard emotions. If you are up to it, look up grief support groups in your area, they tend to be free. I would also suggest looking into counseling services that are offered at universities, churches, and non-profit agencies. Oftentimes, they provide free to low-cost services. I would also suggest talking to your doctor about the issues you are having, as they may be able to offer or suggest other possible resources.
Again, my condolences.

This question is hard to answer. First, talk to your doctor before you discontinue any medication and tell them about your concerns and that you are considering therapy as your only form of treatment. They will be able to help you best as they have been working with you. Second, what do you consider to be psychoanalysis. For example, people call psychotherapy, counseling with any type of therapist, some just consider psychotherapy to be counseling with a psychologist.

Yes, there is a lot of research/evidence that states therapy is successful in treating depression. However, the success of treatment is dependent on several things such as personal expectations, commitment level, and one of the most important is the therapeutic relationship you develop with your therapist. That being said, you would have to find what works best for you.

Hello, it sounds like you are dealing with a lot and are not sure what to do anymore, have you sought help for yourself? I am concerned as you stated, "I am at the end of my rope." You are in a difficult situation. It sounds like your husband has been dishonest with you and his treatment. I would suggest seeking help for yourself to try to figure out what YOU need. You can try couples therapy, but keep in mind, people cannot be forced to change and do things they do not want to do. Find help for you.

Not knowing all of the details, the best thing to do would be to call your local CPS department or police to report it with as much detail as you can and let them do the investigation.

If you go that route, it would be best if you discuss it with your daughter, as it may affect her relationship.

Hello, first let me express my sympathy for you and your family as you work to manage your mother's dementia. There really is not one answer for your question. It depends on how mature your daughter is. Most time the best thing do to is be open and honest with her and explain to your daughter what her grandmother is going through. The main point that should be given is that she has a medical condition, and it is the medical condition that is causing her not to remember her. As her condition will worsen.
