My partner is a very depressed person. She suffers from chronic pain and a couple of months ago was talked into getting off all narcotic medications that she was receiving from a certified pain clinic. Instead of weaning her off as she has been on them for 4 years, they took her off all at once and she suffered from a mild heart attack. She's 63. Because of the intense pain and lack of hope, she has attempted suicide twice. Three weeks ago she left and did not come back for almost a week without telling anyone and she was listed as missing. I was in negotiations with a private detective when she drove up. I do not know what to do and do not have support except from my therapist myself. Her mental health treatment has a lot to be desired. Her therapist will only see her once a month which is the same for her psychiatrist. I have been hiring someone to sit with her while I am at work but cant afford this much longer. I know no one can help me but I just needed to get this off my chest. I have been eating about it and have gained 30 pounds in 2.5 months. I am trying very hard to keep a positive attitude and not slip into debilitating depression myself. I am LOST!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
