Any advice, my wife has been taking anti depressants for a couple of years for pain relief. I thought over that time she had become depressed. She refuses to see our grandson due to a text from our daughter in law which resulted in large scale fallout within the family. She believes our children have taken sides with our daughter in law and has cut ties and refuses to speak to anyone. She gets extremely upset when I see our grandson as she thinks I am taking sides. She has recently had her medication for pain relief stopped and given tablets for depression by her doctor. I don't know how to support her, if I try to explain I am not taking sides we end up not speaking for days, she insists all the problems are caused by our daughter in laws text which I agree with but our daughter in law insists that the text was misunderstood. I don't know if the text was meant or misunderstood and don't want to make a judgement without proof. How do I help her? Do I try to resolve things with our children which at this time she refuses to consider or do I wait and hope the medication she has been given helps her to see the only way to get by is cut all contact. Is there advice available for how to help someone who's on medication, do I confront the problem or do I sit back and let things take its course?
