Hello everyone, I may have written this before but in April of 2006 my husband lost his father. In April I had to put my mom into a nursing home which I didn't want to do. shortly after we got word that my oldest brother had terminal cancer and didn't have much time, I was with him for dr. appointments treatments etc. On August 27 we lost him. In October we had some person traumas happen at our home and on Dec. 13 I lost my mom. My question is....lately I can't seem to pick myself up or motivate myself.

Any help or guideance you can give to me would be really appreciated.
