As lots of you will know, DD3 has had depression (PND?), has 2 under 3s and an idiot for a husband. but also
DD is now taking citalopram and having CBT and is loads better. When things came to a head, the Idiot said to DH that she had a screw loose and needed to sort herself out before he could decide wether to stay with her or not.
DD doesn't talk to any of us about this apart from DD2 but, it appears, he has said he doesn't love her any more but will stay in the same house 'for the children'. DD has told her sister that she is prepared to stay till the end of the year to see if things improve but doesn't expect them to.
When DD first started to have panic attacks the Idiot suggested that she stay with us while he is away and then he would have the children over the weekends. Strangely, he works a lot of weekends! DD now stays with us for 2/3 night per week staying at home the rest of the time.
I should add that he is 50 this year, she is 27. He has been married before and has two grown up children. He doesn't communicate with us at all anymore and does not attend family things.
Our concerns are, mainly, how to help the children during this period but also what emotional and practical advice we can offer DD. And when do I get my tidy house back!
