Nancy, have you thought about what your own role is in your family dynamics and stress behaviour and depression? Instead of being only reactive - what can you do to be proactive?
Someone very wise asked me these questions several years ago and I learnt a great deal about myself when I took over being a lot more responsible for myself and my own actions, reactions attitude and approach to life in general.
I still have to keep myself on a short rein as they say (reign as some of my friends laugh!)BUT I constantly remind myself to ask myself those questions ... and to continue to work on finding answers for them.
