She suffers from severe depression and anxiety and takes a candy store full of meds daily. She’s lost the will to live. My father is verbally abusive and I told her to leave him 20 years ago. She didn’t then because “I didn’t want to hurt you 3 (me and my 2 brothers) and doesn’t now because “I don’t any other way to live”. I explained to her that’s it’s more harmful to everyone being in an environment like that.
There’s a lot of levels of sadness about your situation. It sounds like she’s in an abuse cycle. The best thing you can do for her is just to be there, for support. It sounds like that’s what you’re already doing.
I know we don't see eye to eye, but dealing with the sickness of parents trumps (no pun) all the other nonsense on the board. I wish you the best, depression is a nasty thing and it sounds like she's living in a toxic environment that's not helping her. All you can do is continue to be a good son and support her.
